Our Mission

We know our clients.

We learn the field inside and out so we know our clients and their concerns. We are active in their industry associations and events, and we spend time learning and listening to better service our client group.

We know our carriers.

We keep in tune with our carriers so we know the coverages they offer and their desired risk profile. This enables us to make an effective match between the insurance carrier and client. We take a leading role in asking for and developing coverages with our carriers to have industry-defining insurance solutions for our clients.

We deliver a high level of service.

Our role as representative and intermediary between the insurance carrier and client means that we are the "face" of our carriers. This is an honor with responsibility. We take that responsibility very seriously and hold all involved accountable: claims representatives, billing personnel, audit departments...and ourselves.

We follow the Golden Rule.

This element incorporates our integrity, ethics, trust, and core beliefs into a simple, yet powerful, statement. By holding ourselves to this age-old belief in all of our dealings with customers, prospects, carriers, and fellow employees, we can know that our words and actions will be just.

Insurance Companies

Strong market access is key to our ability to be competitive. We represent many of the top insurance companies in the country, which allows us to secure cost-effective and sensible coverage for our clients. We utilize only A rated or better carriers.

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.
