Founded in 1949, Dwight Rudd Insurance is an independent, privately held, boutique insurance brokerage specializing in the unique risk management needs of accomplished families and successful businesses. 

Philip Ladd has owned the agency since 1986, when he purchased the firm from his father, and has grown the organization nearly tenfold since. With a strong desire for internal perpetuation, and an even greater focus on the agency’s core competencies, Philip named Barbara Targum and Randy Schneider as Managing Partners in January of 2016 with full responsibility for the day-to-day operation of the business.  At the same time, Philip assumed the role of Chairman, allowing him to focus on both his client relationships and further developing Barbara and Randy for their ultimate ownership of the firm.

Equipped to serve clients in all 50 states, we are particularly well suited to addressing the specialized risk management needs of successful individuals & families, as well as a range of businesses. We meet most of our clients through their most trusted advisor, and our process tends to mirror that of their other advisory relationships.

Our process is consultative and educational, and we are confident that it’s like nothing you have experienced before.
