Joe Sikora began his career in the Southern New Jersey/Philadelphia area as a claims handler at a small insurance agency. From there, he progressed to several large insurance Brokerage Houses and carriers including Johnson & Higgins, Marsh, AIG and Chubb. His career has been strictly focused on personal lines coverage and he has extensive experience in the “High Network” area where he managed many well-known, high-profile families.
In 2003, tired of the cold weather and winter, Joe and his wife, Shirley decided to move to Florida. He accepted an outside sales position with Oswald Trippe & Company, who eventually merged with BB&T Insurance Services. Recently, the opportunity developed for Joe and Shirley to open their own firm called Sikora & Moore Insurance, PLLC. Between the two of them, they possess over 70 years of personal insurance experience.
Joe holds a Certified Insurance Counselor designation and was named the Five Star Home/Auto Insurance Professional from Sarasota Magazine in 2012 & 2015.
Shirley Moore Sikora
Shirley Moore Sikora started her insurance career in a small agency in Southern New Jersey in her Junior year in high school. She has held positions with firms such as Electronic Data Systems (EDS), Marsh and Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC). Her career has been focused on Account Management, inside sales and accounting functions. She deviated from her insurance career after being recruited to become Office Manager of a major religious organization for a few years, but her passion for the insurance business made her return.
In 2004, she continued her insurance career after moving to Florida and took positions in both the agency and carrier side: her latest position in the Underwriting Support unit of Computer Services Corporation which handles the processing for several insurance carriers including United Property & Casualty, Florida Peninsula, and Citizen’s.
In 2015, the opportunity presented itself for her to join forces with her husband, Joe to create Sikora and Moore Insurance, PLLC. With his extensive Insurance Expertise and her Account Management background, combined with attention to detail, they felt this was a winning combination.
