Insurance and Risk Management Services, Inc. (IRMS) is celebrating 25 years in business. IRMS was founded in 1989 to protect clients’ financial interests by providing them with comprehensive and professional risk management products and services.

Since its inception, IRMS has been committed to a “client-first” philosophy, making every effort to explain how each program works, what protection it provides and how it meets individual needs. The company provides a variety of products, including business and personal insurance, but recognizes that offering insurance products is just one element of a larger process known as risk management. Risk management provides greater protection because it focuses on reducing clients’ expenses and increasing their profitability by proactively working to prevent accidents, injuries and lawsuits.

IRMS is proud of its 25-year track record of delivering comprehensive risk management solutions. “At the same time, we are forward-focused and have significant plans to enhance our services so we can better meet the insurance and risk management needs of our clients,” said George C. Schmelzle, president and CEO.

He gives credit to the firm’s dedicated professionals for how far IRMS has come. “It is the passion and commitment of our associates that drives our continued success,” added Schmelzle.

In celebration of embarking on its next chapter, IRMS has unveiled a new corporate brand identity that reflects the company’s future strategic direction, mission and goals. Included in the new branding is a redesigned company logo, tagline and print ad created by Wilson Creative Group.

Insurance and Risk Management Services, Inc. has offices in Naples at 8950 Fontana Del Sol Way, Suite 200 and in Fort Myers at 9530 Marketplace Road, Suite 205. For more information, call 239-649-1444 or visit
