Company’s We Work With

The Commercial Agency, Inc.

Kenneth Cerullo, Esq. President

As President of The Commercial Agency, Ken brings a breadth of both academic and applied experience to his role. A 1990 graduate of Bucknell University, with a double major in civil engineering and economics, Ken worked in the engineering field for a time, and in 1997, earned his law degree. While practicing law, Ken worked for 5 years in the very specialized Surety/Construction arena, which allows Ken to bring a unique perspective on the real-time insurance requirements of that field. In August of 2005, Ken assumed responsibility for the daily operation and management of the family company. At The Commercial Agency, Ken divides his time among production and management responsibilities, with a steady eye on industry trends and developing a solid growth strategy for the future.

“Ken has been a really good agent for me for many years.  He calls me up before the renewal, shops my insurance to get the best price for the needed coverage, and meets with me to discuss the options”.

C.G., Plumbing & Heating Contractor

“I like Ken’s attention to detail.  He pushes back and challenges me by pointing out things that I may not have considered.  He has been a trusted advisor for me for many years.  The fact that he is a former construction attorney gives him a greater command of insurance and risk management issues”

D.C., Electrical Contractor

Steve is very attentive to my needs and always makes himself available to research my insurance concerns and get back to me with good answers!  He allows me to concentrate on my business.

A.M., Builder/General Contractor

I came to The Commercial Agency because I was facing a $100,000 premium for my snow plow insurance.  Steve found me a premium for approximately $40,000 and saved me $60,000 per year!  He left no stone unturned in researching policy options!

B. T., Landscape Contractor

Ken & Steve were creative and saved us a tremendous amount of money by finding us affordable snow plow insurance.

C.C., Landscape Contractor

The Commercial Agency has handled by business insurance for a number of years.  They are very professional.  Ken & Steve are both active in our trade association.  Steve volunteers and Ken has been an active force on the board and as legislative chairperson for the association.

G.F., Landscaper

Ken helped our company get covered for a roughly $75,000 claim that was originally denied by the insurance company.  He used his legal background and expert knowledge of the insurance policy forms to argue on our behalf and get us covered! 

R. D., Builder/General Contractor
