David Clausen (pictured) grew up working in an insurance agency. His parents owned and operated a personal and commercial lines insurance agency in Rocky Point, NY, called The Clausen Agency. It was there that Clausen whet his appetite in insurance, starting with simple administrative and operational tasks, while quickly learning the tricks of the trade and taking on new business opportunities. He also watched The Clausen Agency grow from a one man show in 1979 into the thriving, community-focused agency it is today.
In 2001, Clausen followed in his father’s entrepreneurial footsteps and decided to launch an independent insurance agency in Long Island, NY, called Coastal Insurance Solutions. The agency has a niche focus in high net worth (HNW) homeowners’ insurance and flood insurance for assets located in coastal areas. Since its inception, the agency has grown rapidly from servicing just Long Islanders in 2001 to now writing business in New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Florida, Texas, California, and Pennsylvania.
