DOXA’s founders are experienced insurance executives with credentials in the niche and specialty insurance market.
It starts with a constructive conversation…
We created DOXA (an Ancient Greek term meaning “praise”) to fill a gap in the insurance industry. Managing General Agencies with less than $75mil in annual premium volume are often overlooked as the “bigger is better” mentality prevails. Acquisitions that do occur often result in staff being downsized or eliminated, a brand being shuttered and rolled into a competitor, and the installation of painful cost saving initiatives in an effort to increase valuation when the business is flipped a few years later.
DOXA has emerged as a positive succession alternative, one that would expand, rather than change or disrupt, your legacy. After years of hard work and countless hours spent building the business, we know how important it is to preserve the organization and to leverage the intellectual capital you and your experienced team bring to the table.
Our mission is to partner with small to mid-size MGA’s in order to provide owners financial and scheduling flexibility to plan for life’s next adventures. DOXA’s approach is based on integrity, respect, transparency, and responsibility.
President & CEO
Matt has over 20 years of MGA-specific experience, driving dramatic growth through all phases of his career. Matt’s experience starts at a seven year-old MGA, where he grew a division from $4mil in annual premium volume sales to over $22mil. From there Matt started a specialized MGA from the ground-up, selling it 5 years later for a 40% annualized rate of return. Most recently Matt worked for a large broker-owned MGA where, as head of sales, premium and revenue growth doubled during his tenure, stopping an eight consecutive year contraction in premium and revenues prior to his involvement.
During his career, Matt has had the opportunity to engage with hundreds of different MGAs and has always been impressed with both their industry specific knowledge and the strength of their teams. After selling his MGA and watching all that he built evaporate into a larger organization, and combining this with the fact that many MGA owners want to take some, but not all of their chips off the table, Matt and his business partners conceived DOXA.
