Joe Pallant opened Pallant Insurance Agency, one of the largest insurance agencies in South Florida, in 1996. Pallant was born on Miami Beach “way before I-95 was built” and studied at the University of Miami “before air conditioning was in the dorms.”
After graduating from UM with an MBA, Pallant discovered that “there were no job openings in Miami for ‘international finance,’ so I was fortunate to be hired by an insurance company in Miami. It was several years after that I realized I could do it as a career,” Pallant recalled. “The Property and Casualty insurance business is a unique business and I really enjoy the business and meeting hundreds of new clients each year and helping them with their home and business insurance. I love working with my clients and I have an outstanding office working with true professionals.”
Pallant’s busy life extends beyond the insurance business. "My husband and partner is Sandro Trevisan, we both attend Crunch gym, he more than me. I am also an avid golfer and I enjoy travelling on 6 to 9 cruises a year. I enjoy spending time with my family. I have one daughter and one granddaughter,” he noted.
“I moved to Fort Lauderdale 14 years ago. Wilton Manors is a wonderful, beautiful place to live and I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. I am actively involved in a few community organizations, including Our Fund, Lambda Legal, Stonewall Museum and Archives, the World Aids Museum, Wilton Manors Business Association, Foundation Arts Broward (FAB), the Gay Men’s Chorus, and The Pride Center."
