Biographical Info

In 1997 Bart and four colleagues formed TAGA with a strong desire to deliver superior customer service to Independent Insurance Agents in Texas while making an underwriting profit for their Carriers. TAGA has experienced rapid growth due largely to the TAGA team that Bart and his colleagues have assembled. Taking an active role in the company, he leads the Workers Comp, Accounting, Human Resources, and Marketing Teams helping them to achieve the TAGA Difference.

Prior to forming TAGA, he was Vice President of Operations and Partner with another MGA in the Austin area. Previously, Bart worked for both an insurance agency and a major insurance company in various Sales and Underwriting capacities after graduating from Louisiana State University in 1982 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Management and Administration.

Current Industry Affiliations include the Texas Surplus Lines Association ( TSLA ), the National Association of Professional Surplus Lines Organizations ( NAPSLO ), American Association of Managing General Agents ( AAMGA ), the Independent Insurance Agents of Texas ( IIAT) and many local chapters, and the Federation of Insurance Women of Texas ( FIWT ) and many local chapters.

Celebrating over 30 years of marriage, he and his wife, Cindi, have 3 sons. They enjoy traveling, boating, and an occasional game of golf
