Community as  a Priority

Owning a local business puts you at the heart and soul of the community. You are more than just the one who writes a policy, you are the superhero who protects every family you touch. You are also little league sponsors, charity walk participators, and family day event creators.


The local insurance agent is Main Street America.


In his 15 years owning Paradiso Insurance, Chris Paradiso has been an advocate, sponsor, and community man. Owning business in a community breeds a love for that community, so you give back to that community any way you can. Paradiso Insurance is known in its community for family events, shopping local and supporting veterans.


“I exist to help.” – Chris Paradiso


Holding charity close to his heart, Chris believes that when a cause is important, there is no length too great to go to. If he finds meaning in it, he will do whatever he can for it. Over the years he has supported his Connecticut community in many ways – from homelessness charities all the way to children’s health.


Of particular importance to Chris is being sure that the people of his community are taken care of. His involvement spans beyond local business and fundraising. Sitting on the advisory board of Connecticut Children’s Medical and working tirelessly to help Journey Found, Chris believes that if something brings passion in him, it deserves his heart and soul.


“We are real people taking care of real community people.”- Chris Paradiso

The independent insurance agent is one of the few people left that is still as devoted as ever to taking care of individual people. We are providing options, and options are the American way. Without the independent insurance agent, our communities are without a defender. Without the independent insurance agent, our communities are left without their superheroes, protecting their most valuable assets: their lives. For Chris, giving back does not start and end within his Connecticut community. Believing wholeheartedly in the values of the independent insurance agent, Chris focuses his passions on educating the industry on the keys to staying afloat in this ever-changing world.
