Houston

Who We Are

With its robust economy, diverse marketplace and large workforce, Greater Houston businesses and residents need an equally robust insurance firm that has the strength to keep pace with the region’s growth. Our team in Houston is the melding of five groups that together has the backbone to fulfill your budget goals and service needs as they evolve.    

Madison Benefits Group was the first to join Higginbotham in 2008. When it opened in 1984, it was one of the first of its kind in Houston—a full-service firm dedicated solely to employee benefits brokerage and consulting.  

In 2010, Swantner & Gordon merged with us. Its commercial and personal insurance practice helped round-out our product offering in Houston. At the time, the 74-year-old firm was already one of the largest brokers in the nation.

BenefitSpecialists, an employee benefits firm founded in 1988, came aboard after its founder recognized a gap between the specialized services that Houston employers needed and those offered by typical insurance brokers. Merging with Higginbotham in 2012 filled that gap.

The fourth to join was Chapman Schewe Benefits Consulting in 2013. The firm too was a union; that of former health care insiders, insurance underwriters and employee benefits brokers who came together in 1992 to give employers in Houston unsurpassed insight to managed care.

Most recently, Insurance Associates of the Southwest (IAS) partnered with us. IAS opened in 1996 with the merging of three Houston insurance agencies, and a fourth joined in 2002. Each union brought them closer to their goal of maximizing customer service, which ultimately led them to Higginbotham in 2016.

As a unified team operating under the same roof in Houston, Higginbotham has combined the talents of these professionals so you have an ally for everything involving employee benefits, business and personal insurance and risk management.
