Joe Vella Insurance Brokers (JVIB) was established in Cairns in 1996. From relatively humble beginnings JVIB has grown from strength to strength and now employs 28 staff across three offices. Our ever growing client base currently consists of approximately 5,000 individuals, partnerships and companies. The company’s aim is to ensure that all clients enjoy the choice of a wide range of insurance and financial solutions to enable them to better run and protect their businesses and family assets. This goal is enshrined in the company motto “Business Without Boundaries”.Strong business acumen has played an important role in the growth of JVIB and our client list. The following important milestones have been instrumental to helping us achieve our growth in not only clientele, but our family of staff as well:
- October 2004 De Iacovo and Strike Insurance Brokers, a brokerage based on the Atherton Tablelands, was purchased.
- October 2004 We opened our Mareeba office.
- July 2005 FNQ Tropical Insurance Brokers, a brokerage based in Cairns, was purchased.
- January 2006 We opened our Atherton office.
- July 2007 The Far North Queensland portfolio of Rocksure Insurance Brokers, a subsidiary of The Rock Building Society, was acquired.
- July 2010 Suncorp invited us to purchase their Queensland register of strata policies as they were no longer able to underwrite this class of business.
- July 2010 The JVIB Strata Division was created to ensure the continuation of great service to our new and existing strata clients.
- July 2010 Our new Marine Division was launched after seeing an opportunity to provide knowledgeable and experienced assistance with this specialised insurance product.
- October 2017 JVIB partnered with the Steadfast Group. As a JVIB was already a member of Steadfast, it was an easy decision to sell the Lion’s share of JVIB to the largest general insurance broking network in Australasia as they share similar philosophies on providing exceptional client service.
