Co-founder and president
VENTURE PACIFIC INSURANCE SERVICES
In 1997, Curtis Barton co-founded Venture Pacific Insurance Services, and the company quickly grew to become one of the country’s top independent brokerages, providing commercial and personal lines, benefits, surety, risk management, and financial services. Under Barton’s guidance, the company has maintained double-digit growth each year, including a 33% revenue increase last year. Barton also guided Venture Pacific through the expansion of its proprietary online niche platform and completed the acquisition of two Southern California firms.
