By November 11, 2022August 10th, 2023Culture

We are honored to be Houston Business Journal’s Best Places to Work 2022 WINNER!

Highpoint Insurance Group is a fiercely independent boutique brokerage firm specializing in commercial insurance and employee benefits for mid-large size ‘boots and blue jeans’ type companies.

Highpoint was founded on the humble belief that if you treat people right and do the right thing, success will follow. Brandon & Heather Smyrl started Highpoint in 2008 with just ten employees and now almost 15 years later, is home to almost 70.  Our combined industry knowledge and expertise is what sets us apart from other firms. We evaluate market trends, statistics, and reports to make informed decisions, reviewing your organization’s current risk protocols and policies, assessing the risk levels and implications of certain situations, and present strategies that have lasting impact on your business.

Our greater purpose is to give more than we take with a servants’ heart for our clients, coworkers, and community. When you partner with Highpoint, you make a difference. In 2022, 12% of profits will directly impact non-profit organizations in our community and around the world. We do this through Highpoint Hearts and it is our goal to increase this giving percentage each year.

We are servant leaders.

We listen to understand.

We pursue discomfort.

We choose joy.

We own our mess.

We earn our seat.

We are defenders of our people and our culture. These are the core values we believe in and strive to hold true each and every day.

In the summer of 2022, we opened a second location in the Texas hill country in Marble Falls! It is our hope that we can continue to have an even greater impact across the state and the country in the years to come.
