About Us

President's Message

Topa Insurance Company was founded by John E. Anderson on the principle of “Do the Right Thing”, and we are as committed now as we have been since our founding to doing the right things for our policyholders, distribution partners, employees, communities, and owners. While there have been many changes at Topa throughout our 35+ years, our commitment to our stakeholders is unwavering.

The success of our company is built on assembling a group of diverse, highly talented professionals who share the company's core values:  Respect, Integrity, Community, Accountability, and Innovation. We are also dedicated to the ideals of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). Topa Insurance has committed to extensive DEI training for all our team members to build awareness of our values, commit to thoughtful inclusion and recognize specific actions that will improve the social and cultural aspects of DEI in the workplace. Through programs and policies we continue to build on and bolster the great culture we have today.

In March 2022, we operated our second full year under a remote workforce structure. This allowed us to reduce our carbon footprint, provide greater flexibility to our employees and extend our recruiting efforts across the country. Our team expanded from California to more than 14 states across the U.S. Under this remote work model, we remain highly engaged with all our team members, while continuing to focus on building and maintaining our excellent culture and our partner relationships. We work tenaciously to ensure we are an employer of choice and a partner of choice. 

Our goal as a company is to provide industry-leading ‘ease of doing business’ by maximizing our operational efficiency.  We have continued to invest in maximizing the benefits of our modern, flexible, and scalable technology platform.  An important component of knowing where to focus and in what to invest comes from listening to our partners. In 2021, we launched our Broker Council, a group made up of broker partners to discuss industry trends, business needs, and our latest initiatives. By working with the council, we affirmed whether we were working on the most productive projects and modified or developed new initiatives based on the council’s feedback.

Later this year, we will launch our Broker Portal; a self-service platform for our partners to access quick quotes, loss runs and more. We will also institute a new, streamlined renewal process which will make renewals significantly easier. Both projects are part of our growth plan to create more efficient processes. 

We have developed new business partner relationships that will further strengthen the operating position of the company and in the market. We will continue to identify and develop mutually beneficial partner relationships.  I am happy to have the chance to engage in face-to-face meetings and events as it becomes safe to do so. I have enjoyed meeting many of our business partners at WSIA and CIWA and hope to meet many more in the months ahead and deepen our relationships.  

I am honored to lead this great organization made up of extremely dedicated and talented team members. They fuel our great culture, nurture our business relationships, and continue to drive for success. I am extremely excited about the opportunities ahead.  

Sincerely,
Michael Day
