While determined to remain independent, NCW also saw the need to collaborate and share resources in order to continue competing with larger agencies. The challenge was to find a like-minded partner. A perfect match was found with Sanford & Tatum in Lubbock, Texas. Another independent firm, Sanford & Tatum also had an established regional and national presence. On January 1, 2016, the two prominent West Texas agencies joined forces to form Heritage Risk Management, serving a five-state area and beyond.
With 178 years of combined experience, Heritage Risk Management brings a tremendous amount of expertise to the integrated risk management space. By sharing best practices and achieving greater scale, NCW and Sanford & Tatum are stronger together. At the same time, both agencies continue to operate on their own, serving clients in their area markets and maintaining their maverick spirit.
As part of Heritage Risk Management, NCW is free to continue building on its storied legacy while preparing for a bright future ahead.
