Leavitt Group's Story
Dixie Leavitt, 1952
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.
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.

As the parent company grew, LGE provided member agencies with the multi-agency strength necessary to maintain insurer relationships, offered placement services, provided back-office support, and developed other group-wide services, such as E&O coverage.
Leavitt Group has seen tremendous growth over the years, which was fostered by sound agency operations, innovation, partnering with the right people, and following the Leavitt Group values.
