About Us > History

Selman & Company began as a Property and Casualty insurance agency whose roots date back to 1905. For seventy-five years, our corporate focus was geared almost entirely toward Property and Casualty insurance.

Over the last three decades, the insurance industry evolved in several new directions and so has Selman & Company. Since 1980, our business has expanded through the acquisition of companies specializing in the marketing and administration of insurance programs. During this time we acquired firms from Florida, Tennessee, South Carolina, Texas, California and Ohio.

John L. Selman, our Chairman, set the direction of the firm, orchestrated our acquisitions and developed our management team from 1980 through 2000. At that time, he stepped back from the day-to-day operations of the company to focus on strategic initiatives. David L. Selman, previously responsible for sales, account management and marketing, assumed the role of President in 2001 and was named CEO in 2008. He is the third consecutive generation to take responsibility for this increasingly diverse enterprise.

In 2014, Selman & Company announced two new acquisitions. These additions gave us significantly greater insurance market volume, strengthening our offerings for both our longstanding customers and those who now join us. In 2017 SelmanCo acquired the business and assets of Vision Financial Corporation, a third party administrator (TPA) of voluntary worksite benefits.

Today, Selman & Company provides insurance marketing and administrative services to Associations, Credit Unions, Banks, Employers and Insurance Companies throughout the fifty states, the District of Columbia and Canada.

As your partner, Selman & Company strives to consistently provide extraordinary insurance programs and administrative services distinguished by organizational integrity.
