FRESNO, Calif., March 21, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — First opening the doors of a Fresno office in July of 2012, California’s fastest growing insurance brokerage is already expanding to meet local demand. EPIC (Edgewood Partners Insurance Center), a retail property, casualty and employee benefits insurance brokerage that started with just two principals, has since added four more brokers specializing in property and casualty and employee benefits, as well as claims advocacy, account management and client service positions.
