About Us



A family business to protect your family’s business!

Like many of our long-term clients, our company history spans generations. Its beginnings reach back to the 1970s, when iCare co-founder Tom Siracusa‘s father Tony switched from a successful career in the restaurant business to a new career in general insurance. Known for his exemplary customer service, Tony Siracusa treated all of his clients like family and built his new insurance company on a strong foundation of trust, honesty, integrity, hard work, and excellent service.

After 30 years in the business, Tony officially retired in 2004, but continued to advise his son Tom (who followed his father into the business in 1995) until he passed in August 2007.

In 2006, after becoming a top salesperson at Key Insurance Services after 10 years of service, Tom Siracusa and co-founder Karen Matheson formed Comprehensive Insurance Brokers. Then in 2011, Tom and Karen restructured and rebranded the business into today’s iCare Insurance.

When it came to choosing our new company name after the restructuring, we never considered naming the company after the owners because our business has never been about us; it’s always been about our clients and how we “take care” of them. That’s why we changed our name to how we do business, and hence the name, iCare Insurance.

We took it one step further and trademarked our name and tagline because “We Care For You & Everything you Love”®. We really do. Serving you and your family since 1974, we are your Auto, Home, Business, Marine, Life and Travel Insurance specialists.
