Brian Cruden has done more than dedicate his career to the insurance industry. He’s also helped define it. In fact, many of the industry philosophies used today are the result of breakthroughs Brian has had throughout his career. That career spans more than three decades. Over that time, he has served in several executive capacities, most notably as Vice President of Nevada’s largest insurance company. He founded Insurcorp in 1992 on the heels of that essential experience, and merged with national insurance giant Brown & Brown in early 2012 to create Brown & Brown Insurance of Nevada, Inc. Today the company he started is one of the largest health and welfare brokerage and consulting firms in Nevada.


Brian’s acumen is much sought-after, even beyond his client base. He has served as Board Trustee for Nevada’s largest community bank, and he has served as both Chair and Board Trustee for the Nevada Community Foundation and the Trinity Schools Foundation. He has also been the Chairman of the North Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce Foundation, and he has been appointed to the Board HCA/Columbia-Southern Hills Hospital. Brian was the founder and president of Las Vegas West Rotary and most recently was appointed to the Board of Directors, U.S. Bank of Nevada.


For his pioneering work in the insurance industry, Brian has been recognized by United Healthcare National as a Platinum Level Broker and Consultant. He also serves as Brown & Brown’s liaison and National Broker Advisory Board Member for Guardian Insurance Company, Voya, and Lincoln Financial Insurance Company. He has a degree in finance and business management and maintains active designation as a Chartered Health Underwriter.


Throughout his career, Brian has done more than build a reputation. He has also helped build the industry – an effort that continues every day, with every client.
