Where We Started
The Wexler Story
Wexler Insurance Agency, Inc. was established in 1968 by Michael J. Wexler. In an industry that never specialized in any particular type of insurance, Mike felt that the “wave of the future” would be specialization. Through research and through some key clients in the jewelry business, the Agency specialized in writing coverage for the jewelry industry, mainly in the State of Florida. In the early 80’s, Steven M. Wexler, Mike’s son, came into the business. The two of them expanded their markets and their salesforce, and started writing policies for the jewelry industry on a worldwide basis. Gary J. Wasserman then joined the firm in 1992, teamed up with Steve and, through an acquisition of IJB (International Jewelers Block), a former competitor, expanded the business around the United States, opening offices in Ohio, New York and California.
