FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., April 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Patriot National Insurance Group, Inc., a leading provider of workers' compensation insurance and insurance services, will proudly celebrate its 10th anniversary on April 25, 2013. Patriot, which was founded by Chairman & CEO Steven M. Mariano with a mere 2 employees, has grown into a national carrier with nearly 500 employees and $300 million of in-force reference premium. Mr. Mariano established Patriot National's corporate headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Florida; from this South Florida home office Patriot National has grown into a company with a national presence and seven regional offices located in the key markets of Orlando, Charlotte, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Sacramento, and Los Angeles.
