Our Culture

Our Agency was founded on three basic principles: honesty, trust and integrity. We are honest with our co-workers, partners and customers. We trust one another and those we have business relationships with. We conduct business with integrity.

Our Mission

ComTech – Leavitt Insurance Services is committed to providing the communications and technology industries with an agency 100% focused on these industries by building upon our industry experience, knowledge, and relationships in these industries.

Our Approach

Our Agency just doesn’t deliver a premium with a few limits shown to the client. We pride ourselves on advising our clients and allowing them to have the information needed to make informed decisions. We want our customers left feeling comfortable with their risk management and insurance program we deliver to them. We can do this because of the narrow focus we have with these two industries. We stay tuned to what is going on in these industries, whether it is legislative changes or technology advancements.
