About API

Atlantic Pacific Insurance is an independently owned and operated, full-service insurance agency that has been serving the community of Palm Beach County and surrounding areas since 1981. Our mission is to provide our clients with a trusted advisor that is dedicated to customized insurance and risk management, so that they may be best protected in all circumstances.

The three founding partners of Atlantic Pacific Insurance – Jeff Hooker, Doug Peace, and Greg Behl – joined forces to create an entity that was better than the one they were in.

These same values and intentions that were embraced 35 years ago still exist today at API:

  • Respect
  • Integrity
  • Service Excellence
  • Profitability
  • Teamwork
  • Fun

In addition to Jeff, Doug, and Greg; Matt Peace became a partner in 1990 and Tom Tardonia then in 1997. Today the five partners lead six insurance offices throughout south Florida. Our main office is located in Palm Beach Gardens, with additional offices located in Belle Glade, Key West, and Stuart.

With service that exceeds our competition, Atlantic Pacific provides its clients with insurance and financial services not provided by others, including our trademarked CompAdvantage™ program.
