Marine Providers was formed in 2005 to create a separate Marine Specialty unit within the Capax Group of Companies.  Led by Barbara Galgiani, Marine Providers has developed a phenomenal reputation for solving problems for their clients and developing alternatives to complex exposures.

A few comments made recently by long term CAPAX – Marine Providers clients:

Barbara and her staff have been amazing in dealing with all my issues.  It has been like having an insurance consultant on my staff.  I have shifted all my insurance with her over the years.  It has been a 10+ year relationship. Her professionalism and insurance / marine knowledge is truly remarkable. I recently did a succession plan for my business and along with my attorney and CPA; Barbara was named as a key player.

Barbara Galgiani of CAPAX has been our insurance broker for nearly 20 years, and we have been extremely satisfied with the service during this time.  In particular Barbara has been a valuable resource for every insurance, liability, and human resource issue that has come along.  Her knowledge and expertise are exceptional and we can always rely on a timely response.  Barbara has also been a great advocate for us, working hard keeping our insurance rates reasonable and even lobbying carriers to appoint an excellent attorney, when one was required

Having five marinas gets a little hectic sometimes. It is always comforting to know that Barbara has made sure there are not any holes and has our back. There have been many occasions when she has had to demand the underwriter do the right thing. She knows how to present the facts to get the desired outcome. I have recommended Barbara to some other water sports / marina operators. Each time I run into them, they thank me and rave about how good she is. I would strongly recommend Barbara Galgiani without any hesitation.

Our clients are primarily located within California. We work with clients on their insurance placements and have resources to help with ongoing employee matters and business operation issues.
