When Lonnie, Terry, and Garry Ledbetter founded State National Companies back in 1973, little did they know what their new business venture would look like nearly 50 years later. From a single managing general agency to a network of insurance companies and agencies licensed across the U.S. to becoming a part of an international Fortune 500 insurance giant Markel, State National’s goal has always been simplifying the complexities of insurance for our clients. From the beginning, our high-quality programs and superior service helped us form a unique insurance company with thriving relationships, based on creating customized solutions that address the nuances of each client’s business.
Innovative insurance products are the foundation of our CPI operations, bolstered by a strong history of strategic alliances and acquisitions that bring people and technology together. We assumed control of our first insurance company in 1979, which became the genesis of our fronting business, expanding our products and providing a vision for the future.
