We believe in doing the right thing by those we serve. We invest in great people – thought leaders. We approach each client proactively, with ingenuity and foresight, and with a long-term view. We build partnerships that go beyond mere business transactions.
where we started
In 1959, Henry Miltenberger started the company with a partnership with the Louisiana State Bar Association that gave Gilsbar its name — Group Insurance Louisiana State Bar. This partnership launched a national insurance services provider with over 300 employees and an insurance administration strategy that is resonating throughout the country. We are honored to continue to serve our very first customer, the LSBA, as well as many other distinguished partners, employers, brokers and consultants, affinity groups, insurance carriers and individuals.
