Brashears & Newendorp is thrilled to formally announce the acquisition of three prestigious insurance agencies to our growing family of synchronized insurance providers. In October of 2021, Brashears & Newendorp welcomed Douglas Maritime Insurance Brokers as an additional resource in the marine insurance division. In June of 2023, we acquired Ocean Marine Insurance Agency, Inc. and Kudlich Insurance Services LLC to the B&N family, bolstering our expertise in the aviation insurance industry. These strategic acquisitions mark a significant milestone for our company as we continue to expand our offerings and strengthen our knowledge and expertise in niche areas of the insurance market. We now have offices in Santa Barbara, Newport Beach, and Honolulu, and serve clients nationwide.

Let’s explore the newest members of the B&N family…

Douglas Maritime Insurance Brokers | Marine

Douglas Maritime Insurance Brokers, with almost three decades of experience, established itself as a specialist brokerage for ocean marine risk. The company’s expertise lies in providing tailored insurance solutions to marine insurance clients nationwide, including California, Alaska, and Hawaii. Their primary focus is ensuring commercial fishing operations, dive boats, and passenger carrying vessels: whale watching, sport fishing, and dinner cruises. The acquisition of Douglas Maritime Insurance Brokers aligns perfectly with Brashears & Newendorp’s commitment to fostering strong relationships with clients and exclusive markets.

Ocean Marine Insurance Agency | Marine

The addition of Ocean Marine Insurance Agency, Inc, a well-respected marine insurance agency based in Hawaii, further enhances our company’s reach and influence in the marine insurance sector. With a comprehensive understanding of the unique risks faced by marine-based businesses operating in Hawaii and the Pacific, Ocean Marine Insurance Agency, Inc brings valuable regional expertise to the table.

In pursuit of diversifying our insurance offerings, Brashears & Newendorp has also acquired Kudlich Insurance Services, LLC.

The addition of Kudlich Insurance Services, LLC elevates the company’s aviation division to new heights.

The aviation industry presents unique challenges, and the newly improved aviation division at Brashears & Newendorp is well-equipped to handle the intricacies of aviation risk management. Working in close collaboration with top-rated insurance carriers, our team’s mission is to deliver comprehensive risk management solutions tailored to the aviation sector’s specific needs.
