Bob Lull’s philosophy of encouraging his business partners to continue their brand has empowered The Capacity Group to become one of the largest full service independent insurance brokerage groups in the nation.
Bob’s business career started as an efficiency expert for a large management consulting firm that worked with fortune 500 companies. In 1986 Bob switched careers and entered the insurance industry when he went to work for his friend and subsequent partner. After that entity was acquired, Bob became Vice President of Operations for one of New Jersey’s largest insurance brokerage firms, NIA, LTD, where he developed mergers and acquisitions with the President, gaining the finesse of creating harmonious transactions. Bob founded Capacity Coverage Company of New Jersey, Inc. in 1990 with three employees and his partner, Mark Weinraub. In 1999 he founded Protrans, Inc., that morphed into AllTrans Risk Solutions, LLC, a program administrator for public transportation classes that include school bus, motor coach, limousine and medical transportation, which underwrites and issues policies for these classes of business nationally.
