Broomfield, CO (April 11, 2016) – ICAT has been selected as a Top Workplace in the Denver Metro area for the second year in a row.

ICAT is a leading provider of property insurance to businesses and homeowners in catastrophe-exposed regions of the United States.
“The fact that this recognition is based 100% on feedback from our team members makes this all the more important to us, but it’s feedback we have received over and over again: We have a great team environment at ICAT where we continually support each other,” said ICAT President Gregory Butler. “This environment produces both an employee and customer experience that continues to make ICAT a winning and growing company.”
To be considered for this award, companies were measured on several qualities including leadership, career opportunities, workplace flexibility and benefits.
