Where we come from tells you where we’re going
Griffith, Hunt and Burwell was founded in Olympia, WA, in 1927, offering Property/Casualty coverage to the marketplace. In the 1950s, the company shortened its name to GHB Insurance. Bill Perkins purchased GHB in 1992, expanding the service offerings to include Employee Benefits and Individual Medical. Ron Bruchet joined the organization in 2001, became President in 2007, and ultimately acquired the company in 2009.
Over the course of the last 10 years, GHB has seen its largest growth, expanding their sales division to serve all of Western Washington. With a current staff of over 20 employees, GHB Insurance is now one of the largest brokerage firms south of Tacoma. They moved into their new office in January of 2011 to accommodate continued growth.
GHB Insurance is not only committed to our clients, but also to the community, supporting such organizations as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Thurston County Chamber, Boys and Girls Club, Leadership Thurston County, Economic Development Council, Olympia Youth Choir, and the YMCA.
