Our founder starts his career as an insurance producer
Our journey started in 1971, when our founder, Dimitris Zafiriou started his career as an insurance producer. A few years later, as a result of his deep understanding of the business, his capabilities as well as his exceptional character, he was invited to join well-known insurance corporations as an executive.
Comergon Insurance Brokers is established
This period concluded successfully in 1994 when his entrepreneurial spirit urged him to launch one of the first insurance broker consultancies in Greece, joined in this endeavor by his wife Katie. Following a successful trial period, 1997 saw the establishment of Comergon Insurance Brokers.
In the same year Comergon became a full member of the Hellenic Insurance Brokers Association (HIBA). HIBA stands for professional excellence in the Greek Insurance Brokers’ Market and its members, who are the most prominent broker firms, fully adopt the values and code of ethics of the association. Our founder, Dimitris Zafiriou, served many terms in various positions in HIBA’s BoD during his career and still carries the title of Vice Chairman Emeritus. Following the same steps, our CEO, George Zafiriou, has served the BoD of HIBA for three consecutive terms and is currently the Secretary General of the Association.

Staying ahead of the developments in our industry
We fully recognize that we are here to offer confidence and security to our clients at the very moment they need them, for the world of insurance & risk management is a complex and demanding world. Thus, we remain constantly vigilant in staying ahead of the developments in our industry on an international level, by being informed and by maintaining deep knowledge and rich experience.
With absolute specialization and excellent service levels that set new standards in the market
Proper and timely risk management requires absolute specialization and that is exactly what we do!
We are in the Greek-speaking market of risk management, providing high quality professional services, acting as integrators of insurance and related solutions, serving exclusively corporate clients. We identify our client’s potential risks and place them in the best and most cost-effective way. At the same time, we offer service levels that exceed the expectations of our clients and set new standards in the market.
We strive to be the absolute trusted partner of our clients when they are called upon the complex world of insurance for any reason. We achieve this because we daily prove with actions that we understand the risks and their nature and can evaluate the proper way they can be managed. In a rather unique way for the common practice, we instead take into account the criteria they set and propose the most appropriate solutions in this context. We do this by remaining completely dedicated and specialized in the subject we love.
Strategic partners and experienced consultants
We have been in the market since 1968 and we will stay focused on it exclusively, for we fully understand it & its terms and adapt accordingly, persistently setting new standards in our service offering to our clients.
We will continue to be the strategic partners and experienced consultants for our clients, providing them with the maximum possible value for the money they invest in meeting their insurance needs. We will continue to grow by choosing those clients who recognize this value, being assured that more and more companies and organizations will trust us.
We want to be the best in what we do and we believe that our market will reward us for this. Perhaps the leading position we enjoy is exactly because of that.
Nevertheless, we deeply believe that one cannot lead the game by watching the scoreboard. For us our goal is not to just do our job better than others. We want to set new standards and to drive the developments in our market.
Competing with ourselves every day, is our way of doing business.
