The Tolman & Wiker team celebrating our 90th Anniversary at the historic Camarillo Ranch in Camarillo, California


Tolman & Wiker Insurance Services, LLC is one of the largest, privately held independent insurance brokerages in California. With offices in Ventura, Los Angeles, Santa Maria, Bakersfield, Salinas, and Westlake Village, Tolman & Wiker is ranked among the top 100 insurance brokerages in the United States.


With origins dating back to 1923 in Ventura, California, Tolman & Wiker now has over 150 employees who place our clients’ priorities at the center of everything we do. Our leading-edge approach to providing proactive risk advice and proprietary resources to meet and exceed our clients’ risk management and employee benefits needs allows us to place over $330 million in annual premium volume throughout the U.S. and global insurance marketplace.


Our team combines extensive industry knowledge and market specialization for clients in virtually every industry sector of the marketplace, including large publicly traded companies with operations, personnel, and risk exposures around the globe. Our size and depth gives our clients access to best-in-class resources and expertise they need for world-class risk management and benefits consulting.


Because we’re an independent, privately held insurance brokerage owned and led by 21 partners, our priorities and resource delivery are focused first and foremost on our clients, not on the demands of institutional shareholders or remote corporate ownership. Throughout our history, Tolman & Wiker has continually adapted to the changing business environment with innovation and excellence.


Tolman & Wiker is deeply committed to the communities we serve. Many of our team members volunteer for causes that benefit disadvantaged and underserved segments of the community, offering our time and treasure to many nonprofit organizations, as well as organizations that promote the area’s economic vitality.


With this legacy of leadership, autonomy, and service, Tolman & Wiker has successfully merged tradition with innovation, and stability with entrepreneurship, all for the benefit of our clients. In doing so, we’ve become a market leader and an employer of choice, providing our clients with unsurpassed risk advice, superior solutions, and peace of mind.
