PONTE VEDRA, Fla. — F&I product provider Automotive Assurance Group, a Georgia based company, has expanded, opening an office in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.

Citing growing demand in the Southeastern United States and increased dealings in Florida, Automotive Assurance Group’s new office will better meet the needs of their automobile dealer clients with expanded service and reach, officials said.

Many of our dealer groups have interests in and around the Jacksonville area,” said Nick D’Amico, president of Automotive Assurance Group. “This additional location will allow us to better serve their needs and maintain our focus of providing excellent service and customized strategies for our clients.”

Allstate Dealer Services, one of Automotive Assurance Group’s premier providers, is headquartered minutes away in Jacksonville. “We are extremely excited about the opening of the new Automotive Assurance Ponte Vedra location and look forward to working closely with their team to expand the Allstate Dealer Services footprint in the North Florida area,” said Peter Chafetz, vice president of sales for Allstate Dealer Services.
