About Us

An Employee-Owned Company With A Client-First Culture And A Commitment To Remain Independent.

York International is one of the leading independent insurance brokers in the nation. Established in 1985, at the firm’s core is a deep connection to serving the needs of the New York real estate community.

As we grew, our focus diversified into additional industries and the related areas of insurance and risk management. We have established significant employee benefit, high net worth personal and life insurance practices alongside our broad commercial P&C expertise.

Our high-quality standards and commitment to professional development has been recognized by our industry peers. The Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America has named York as one of only a handful of firms to be awarded the distinction of being a Best Practices Agency for the past 10 years in a row.

In September 2017 York International became an employee-owned organization through an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP), making an investment in our employees and a commitment to remaining independent.

Every client routinely interacts with a shareholder of the firm on a daily basis; we believe this makes a difference in the quality of our client and insurer interactions. And, our commitment to remain an independent firm is vital to our success and is in alignment with the goals of our clients, colleagues, insurance markets and the community we serve.
