The Buckner Company Ranks Among Largest, Fastest-Growing Insurance Brokers in Nation

By | October 31, 2011

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH— The Buckner Company was recently ranked as the 16th fastest-growing privately held insurance agency in the nation, according to Hales and Company’s 2011 annual report.  As the third largest Utah-based agency, The Buckner Company has seen rapid growth and continued success in recent years.


What began as a modest one-man agency in Ogden, Utah in 1936, has gone on to become one of the largest and fastest-growing insurance brokerage firms in the United States.  Terry Buckner, the grandson of the founder, E.R. Buckner, is currently the President and CEO.  Under his watch, the firm has more than quadrupled its employee count and opened a second and third location.


And this is just the beginning.  Buckner has plans up his sleeve to continue opening satellite offices throughout the Intermountain West.  Recent growth in the Idaho market has proven more successful than anticipated.  Further expansion in Idaho is in the works.


As The Buckner Company nears its 75th anniversary, Buckner, reminisces on his grandfather’s work ethic.  “I don’t think my Grandpa had a clue that his humble business of selling insurance would grow to become what it is today.  He’d be astounded to see that two generations later, this business is thriving.  I have no doubt that our success has been a direct result of the values of integrity and hard work that he practiced as the foundation of this business was built.  These are values that we continue to embrace today.”


Buckner has a knack for finding talented insurance specialists who think outside the box.  The Buckner Company has gained a solid reputation as a brokerage that offers its clients excellent customer service and customized insurance policies that meet the needs of their businesses and families.


The Buckner Company has been serving the insurance needs of the West with honesty, integrity, and superior service for 75 years. Today, The Buckner Company stands out from their competition in their expertise and knowledge of the construction, agriculture and commercial businesses they service. In addition to providing their expertise in these fields, The Buckner Company also offers specialty niche market services, including personal homeowner and auto insurance, employee benefits, trucking and transportation insurance and surety bonding.
