Our Story

Our family is the result of 5 different organizations coming together as one cohesive group (HIG), leveraging the expertise of each of our legacy agencies to operate as one synergized team. We started with Center of Insurance becoming part of Houchens in the late 90’s.  Gradually we added Insurance Specialist as our benefits expertise, then Van Meter Insurance joined the team in 2006 which brought a toolbox full of resources to allow the organization to compete at the next level. In 2007 Curneal Hignite came on board giving us a presence in Elizabethtown, and finally the 100 year old agency in Northern KY and Lexington;Roeding Insurance added expertise in the Public Entity arena and added a significant volume to our commercial book. All of this combined revenue was originally $35M and today it has grown to over $80M with 325 employee/owners with plans to be at 100M in 5 years. We recently were voted as the number one Best Place to Work in the state of Kentucky. We were also recognized as the 46th Largest Insurance Agency in the United States, as well as a Best Practice Agency.
