McGowan Program Administrators

McGowan Program Administrators (MPA) is America’s leading writer of innovative insurance programs. MPA is a Managing General Underwriter and Program Manager. MPA designs, administers and markets highly-specialized programs of insurance. These programs are available exclusively through MPA. They are offered on “A” Rated, Admitted Paper and are available in all 50 states.

As early as the mid-1950s, we recognized the power of specialization and began writing commercial affinity business.  Since that time, and catapulted by the Federal Liability Risk Retention Act of 1986, we transformed ourselves from a large regional retailer into one of the country’s first Program Managers.  For the past 6 decades, we have dedicated ourselves to program business. Our philosophy has always been to deliver products to our brokers which allow them to distinguish themselves from their competition, from both a pricing and coverage perspective. At the same time, we have delivered extraordinary long-term profitability to our carriers. Satisfying the dual objectives of our brokers and carriers has made us an extremely-stable platform, which is a rare commodity in the insurance industry.

MPA is one of The McGowan Companies (TMC); a family-controlled, conglomerate of insurance and financial service companies.
