  • We're a loyal client because of the excellent customer service.

    Giving us access to our agents, a quick turn around on every phone call, question, and request, plenty of notice for renewals, a proactive team eager to save the company money while meeting our complex and specialty insurance needs.

    Joe solved a problem by quoting different carriers, combining auto and general liability and reducing our insurance rate by more than 50% with better coverage. I worry about Workers Comp claims and having appropriate coverage all around. Joe has helped us by taking the time to ask questions and learn about our company and unique mix of work and recommend and review coverage.

  • Joe is very helpful with his research into any issue or problem that may arise.

    The reason Utah Navajo Health System has been a loyal customer with Leavitt Group is due to their great customer service. The Leavitt Group team is always willing to offer their assistance with any insurance issue that arises and are quick to respond. The Leavitt Group team keeps us informed on new products and services and offers their recommendations.

    Days are busy and I need someone who can resolve my insurance needs in a one-stop way. I also want appropriate coverage at a cost that is affordable. I appreciate Joe and his ability to do these very things for me and Seasons Healthcare & Rehabilitation.

  • Joe has always responded quickly, and I feel that he works hard to find out information for me.

    He also works hard at renewal and helps me when I have issues with the underwriter or with the captives.

  • I have been a loyal client because Joe is really good at finding answers to tough questions.

    We had an unfortunate incident on a job site, a customer was hurt. Joe and his team sprang into action and helped take care of the customer and helped us keep a relationship strong in the process. It was one of the most stressful times of 2020 for our team, but everything worked out great because of Joe and his team. Joe is honest, and he is loyal as well.

  • Joe and his team provide exceptional customer service and work very hard to bring us the best available solutions.

    Joe not only helped us better understand our overall risk profile, but he also tailored solutions to optimize our investments. When several carriers abandoned our industry, Joe worked hard to find us new carriers who would see the strength of our business record instead of just looking at industry affiliation.

Is Captive Insurance Right For You? 8 Questions to Ask Yourself

Captive Checklist Thumbnail

See if a group captive is right for your organization?

I was born and raised in Utah. I attended Southern Utah University on a football scholarship, and while there I worked to obtain my master's degree. I am a commercial lines agent, primarily focused on the healthcare industry, and I also work on alternative risk placement solutions.

My true passion at work is when I can help both my clients and prospective clients achieve their goals, fix problems, and provide solutions. I advocate on their behalf and stand in their corner when a claim needs to be paid, a policy needs to be defended, or a wrong needs to be righted.

My wife and I have two beautiful girls and a baby boy. We are so happy to call Southern Utah our home. When I am not working, I love to golf, exercise, and spend time with family and close friends. I feel so blessed to work for such a great company and with great clients!
