Our Story

NSM Insurance Group was founded in 1990 by Geof McKernan as a commercial property and casualty insurance brokerage firm. After finding that some clients required specialized insurance products to meet the unique needs of their industries, McKernan began exploring the program administration space. He started to manage programs that offered tailored insurance solutions for niche industries that were underserved in the insurance marketplace.

Although the company has become a leading MGA, it still offers the retail brokerage services that it was built upon. Now known as NSM Insurance Brokers, our retail operation has a full staff of insurance brokers who work with more than 1,000 clients in a variety of industries.
