Established in 2005, SUNZ Insurance Company specializes in providing workers’ compensation to Professional Employer Organizations and Staffing Companies. With more than 120+ years of experience, SUNZ has developed a consultative approach for their clients and provides policyholders with solutions unique to their individual needs. 

As they were looking to accommodate their rapid growth and invest in the future of their business, SUNZ decided to move their headquarter location from Sarasota to Bradenton, Florida. To finance the build-out and renovation of their new building, they turned to a provider they knew and trusted—First American Equipment Finance. 

Sonia Cliffel, National Vice President of First American’s Insurance Division, worked closely with SUNZ President, Terri Stevens, to understand the unique objectives of the organization and provide a tailored-fit solution for their workplace. First American financed in excess of $4MM of the project, including construction services, furniture, fixtures, software, and IT/telecom systems. 

SUNZ new office provides the space to meet their current and future growth and an environment where their employees can thrive.
