Anderson Benson was formed in 2012 by Nashville-based insurance and risk management executives George Anderson, Stephen ‘Reno’ Benson, Steve Buzzell and Jim Marks. The founders had prolific legacy firm experience, but wanted to start a firm that delivered a new twist on collaborative service. The partners are committed to creating a firm that provides businesses, nonprofits and individuals with expert local consultation with highly personalized service in sharp contrast to the commodity transaction model and ‘800 number’ customer service that many insurers have adopted.

Today, Anderson Benson is Nashville’s leading locally owned and independent insurance broker. We are a firm that delivers big experience and service. We believe every client at every level deserves our full attention and time. Insurance isn’t our product, relationships are. Our firm is dedicated to meeting the needs of our clients by getting to know them and building a relationship that allows us to fully understand risk exposure, providing expert consultation and consistently providing the highest level of customer service and satisfaction.

Our business is attending to the needs of yours.

Anderson Benson provides insurance, risk management and loss control services to a variety of commercial industries, including entertainment, hospitality, construction, transportation, cultural institutions and nonprofits, and provides a comprehensive line of products for private clients that include homes, autos, jewelry, art, watercraft and other valuable assets.

Our Partners have deep roots in the Middle Tennessee area and maintain active engagement in Nashville-area business, civic and cultural life.
