Our Unique History

We are a privately-held insurance brokerage and consulting firm that focuses on the disciplines of Commercial Property and Casualty, Employee Benefits, and Personal Lines coverages.

Our primary objective remains unchanged since our inception in 1898: to offer personalized service at an exceptionally high level.

Since 1898 we have assisted thousands of individuals and businesses in the identification, analysis, and placement of risk. With extensive professional experience and educational degrees in insurance, finance, and the liberal arts, our employees are our greatest asset. Our revenue is divided equally between the property and casualty and employee benefits sides of the industry, making us a veritable “one-stop shop” for our clients.
