National Program Management's origins date back to the mid 1980s. The company was formed as a wholesale broker dedicated to the environmental property & casualty insurance niche. Shortly thereafter, NPM developed various underwriting facilities and binding authority programs for environmental related risks to serve its appointed producers.
In 2014, a new venture was launched between Norton Strategic Partners, LLC and affiliates of Georgia Agency Partners, Inc (GAP) to become National Program Brokerage, LLC. Also in 2014, we acquired the assets of the Leverett Insurance Group, Inc., which was formed in 1985 as a full-service wholesale brokerage firm. These moves helped to diversify NPM by adding additional brokerage resources in many other classes of business including energy, transportation, real estate, manufacturing, retail, construction, non-profits and professional service firms. We continue to seek to grow all facets of our business through productive relationships with our producers and carrier partners.
Our overall objectives have been to establish an industry wholesale brokerage and program management facility that affords a strong competitive advantage to its producers throughout the United States by providing them greater market access and stronger negotiating power.
