Recognizing 30 years of service.
Robert “Bob” Flanders retired from FCCI’s Board of Directors in November 2022. He stands apart as someone special and with a visionary spirit. He has the gift of being an innovative thinker, a collaborative communicator and a hard worker, all of which he applied during his 30 years as an FCCI board member.
During that time, Bob was a driving force behind FCCI’s transition from a Florida Workers’ Compensation self-insurance fund to providing coverage in more than 20 states, including all Property and Casualty lines and Surety. As President of Quality Walls Enterprises, Inc., a masonry and lathing contractor, from 1974 to 2016, he was also a policyholder.
Bob not only embodied FCCI’s core values, but he also lived one of our pillars – charitable giving. He is a caring person with a generous heart for his colleagues, friends, family and community. For many years, Bob has been committed to Sarasota’s Suncoast Charities for Children and the Suncoast Foundation for Handicapped Children.
From all your teammates, past and present, we extend a heartfelt thanks for being a wonderful influence and a true asset to FCCI.
