History of Leavitt Group

leavitt group history

From the beginning, Leavitt Group has been built on a foundation of trusted co-owners with local insights and experience. This core value has remained central to Leavitt Group as it grew from one agency into one of the largest insurance brokerages in the United States.

Our Foundation

In 1952, Dixie Leavitt opened an insurance agency in Cedar City, Utah, with one company appointment and no clients. By the decade’s end, Dixie had thousands of clients throughout southwestern Utah and southern Nevada.

Our Growth

When Dixie Leavitt and his brother, Bert, incorporated Leavitt Insurance Agency of Las Vegas in 1959, Dixie owned 60% and Bert owned 40%. Using this 60-40 arrangement, Dixie and other co-owners invested in and created agencies in Utah, Arizona, and Nevada. Dixie formed Leavitt Group Enterprises in 1962.

Dixie built Leavitt Group on a foundation of able and trusted co-owners. He recognized that each agency should have nurturing insurer relationships, autonomy in staffing, and increasing sales and profits with which to build an adequate capital base.

As the number and size of affiliated agencies grew, the potential of strength in numbers became apparent. In 1978, the group formed Leavitt Group Agency Association (LGAA), providing member agencies with the multi-agency strength necessary to maintain insurer relationships, to offer placement services, to provide employee benefits, and to support other group-wide services, such as E&O coverage, accounting, IT, data management, marketing, and other key supporting activities.

Since its early beginning in 1952, Leavitt Group has grown into one of the largest independent brokers in the United States. Since 1989, consolidated revenues have climbed from $8 million to $250 million. Throughout this period of growth and success, agency profitability ratios have remained well above industry averages.

Our Future

Leavitt Group continues to expand into new areas and various market segments—from agencies serving in smaller communities to large agencies serving complex corporate accounts. Leavitt Group recruits qualified insurance professionals and affiliates with agencies who share the same foundational values based on integrity.
