Crestbrook Insurance is Now Nationwide Private Client

August 19, 2015

Private Client focuses on unique needs of affluent consumers

Scottsdale, AZ - Starting today, Crestbrook Insurance Company will be rebranded under the Nationwide name. The change is being made to leverage the brand recognition, diverse product offerings and financial stability that all Nationwide companies share.

“We have always benefitted from the financial strength and stability of being part of the Nationwide family, one of the largest and most established insurance and financial companies in the world,” said Jim Pedersen, President of Nationwide Private Client product line. “Now our name better reflects that relationship.”

Nationwide’s Private Client customers will continue to enjoy the stability of a Fortune 100 company with superior credit ratings and the agility and responsiveness of a niche insurance carrier that provides concierge claim service and one-on-one support from risk solution advisors.

"Our client commitment is unchanged. We will always work relentlessly to meet the distinct coverage and service needs of our clients,” Pedersen said. “We still measure our success by the relationships we build and the trust we earn.”

Nationwide Private Client is rapidly growing, with products and services designed to meet the needs of affluent individuals and families. Core products include homeowners, automobile, personal excess liability and collections, and are currently offered in 16 states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas and Washington.

Nationwide Private Client policies are offered exclusively through a network of carefully selected independent agents. "We are committed to building lasting partnerships with our agents by providing a limited distribution model centered around profitable growth opportunities, high franchise value, and a real-time policy rate, quote and issuance platform," Pedersen said.
