Guam - Calvo's Insurance recognized a milestone this past Saturday, celebrating 75 years in business as the oldest underwriter on Guam and in the Pacific region. The historic diamond anniversary was commemorated with a gala event at the LeoPalace Resort in Yona, as the company's ownership, executives and management team invited partners and clients to look back on seven and a half decades of service to the people of the community.

Vice president and general manager Paul A. Calvo announced, "If we can count you as a customer, then we are indeed very, very fortunate. But even if you're not a customer now, I guarantee you that one of your relatives was, one of your employees was, over the last 75 years."

The event also highlighted the achievements of the Calvo family, rooted in full-range service, fair pricing, and swift response instilled by the late founder Jake Calvo when he began selling claims with his wife out of their living room in 1938. These were virtues that Jake passed to his sons and down through nearly four generations, practiced by the modern-day team that oversees a local staff of more than 140.

"For my grandfather's vision and hard work came the foundation of this company. And on that solid foundation, there came others who built upon it. And they built it to withstand the challenges of time and of the natural disasters that have visited us," said Paul Calvo.

This January will also mark the second straight years coverage from Calvo's Insurance will be available to U.S. federal employees locally.  The composition of the Calvo's team is remarkable, with many of the managers having been with the company for decades. Calvo made sure to thank them for their diligence and belief in accomplishing their mission, saying, "The milestones achieved over these recent years have been due to their expertise, their professionalism, and their stubborn pursuit of perfecting this company."

The company also announced that they would be donating $25,000 to the relief fund for the victims of Supertyphoon Yolanda in the Philippines.
