Our History

Ellsworth Corporation was founded in 1973 with the goal of becoming the premier surety agency in Louisiana.

The firm soon expanded its services through organic growth in the construction and marine insurance markets. After experiencing steady growth in our commercial insurance division, Ellsworth moved into the marine insurance sector in 1997 – and has continued the historic tradition of providing insurance protection for marine vessels that was originated by the iconic Lloyds of London in 1680.

Over the past 40 years, our firm has undergone a number of changes and expansion of services. Following is a historic timeline of our corporation.

  • 1973 – Ellsworth, Mayeaux & Associates
  • 1986 – Hilb, Rogal & Hamilton
  • 1997 – Ellsworth, LeBlanc, Ellsworth
  • 2004 – Ellsworth Corporation

In California and Massachusetts we operate under the following name: Ellsworth Risk and Insurance Services.  Although our firm is proud of the growth we have experienced over the years, becoming the largest company in size is not our primary objective. We are committed to acting with a sense of urgency as we seek to provide client-focused insurance brokerage and consulting services designed to advance our clients’ businesses.
