    Trusted since 1885 and headquartered in San Luis Obispo, Morris & Garritano extends its decorated success and reputation into Santa Barbara County bringing on new team members to serve the community.
    SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA, Oct. 12, 2021 — Morris & Garritano Insurance has been a longstanding staple in the Central Coast community insuring and protecting many of the region’s most valuable businesses.
    Providing coverage for businesses of all sizes, Morris & Garritano goes above and beyond offering personalized education and advocacy for their clients regarding employee benefits, workers’ compensation, and human resources & compliance services.
    The company was recently named “Large Business of the Year” by the Santa Maria Chamber of Commerce, recognized for its incredible efforts during the past and particularly difficult year. “People are our heart and soul, and it’s also a reflection of our approach,” says Dan Troy, Principal, Senior Risk Advisor for M&G in an interview upon acceptance of the award. “This past year really tested everybody, but what made us successful… is our people.”
    Morris & Garritano’s longtime headquarters is based in San Luis Obispo, but the company is rapidly expanding its service and presence into neighboring regions. With a growing Santa Maria office and several new additions to the company, accessibility for the Santa Barbara County community has never been better.
    In addition to a full team of service professionals, Morris & Garritano has a group of enthusiastic Commercial and Benefits Advisors dedicated to helping Santa Barbara County businesses with their insurance programs. M&G saw exciting growth internally with the addition of several new team members including Allie Borja, Daniel Vordale, Travis Biegel, and Lynette Dunn in the past year.
    Bringing 25 years of experience in customer service and sales, Allie Borja is a Central Coast native and CalPoly alum who works hard alongside business owners to protect their people and their assets which they’ve worked so hard to develop and maintain. Her role allows her the ability to provide the peace of mind that business owners need to successfully grow their companies. Allie’s passion for community goes beyond her role with M&G. She currently presides as an Ambassador for the Santa Maria Valley Chamber, a Rotarian, and serves on the Board of Directors for the Boys & Girls Club.
    Daniel Vordale is a Central Coast native and UCSB alum who takes pride in his ability to get to know both his clients and their employees to truly customize a benefits program that is unique to their needs. He embodies the passion for community M&G is based upon and, outside of work, is a board member for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA).
    An active member of the community and CalPoly alum, Travis Biegel strives to play a positive role in his clients’ businesses and looks for opportunities where they can work together to improve the needs of each company he works with. Travis actively invests in his community with non-profit involvement, standing as a Director for VTC Enterprises.
