Oklahoma’s Vaughan Insurance Group Merges with Higginbotham

Higginbotham, an independent insurance firm based in Fort Worth, Texas, and Vaughan Insurance Group, a commercial insurance firm in Tulsa, Oklahoma, have merged operations.

This gives Higginbotham a second location in Oklahoma, where it opened its first out-of-state office in Oklahoma City in 2017. Higginbotham now has offices in nine states.

Higginbotham partnered with Vaughan Insurance Group to help expand and continue building its practice in Oklahoma, which is now a multi-million dollar operation. Vaughan Insurance Group has a similar commitment to personal, local service, and its five-person team will collaborate with Higginbotham’s existing Oklahoma City office to broaden its products and services to provide a single source solution to customers.

Husband and wife owners David and Lisa Vaughan opened Vaughan Insurance Group in 2007. David Vaughan has 38 years of experience in the insurance industry working in both insurance carrier and agency environments as a marketer, underwriter and broker. Vaughan Insurance Group serves 850 commercial accounts with a concentration in member association professional liability insurance, oil and gas insurance, and construction surety.

David Vaughan was named a managing director of the merged entity. He will continue leading the Tulsa operation now known as Vaughan Insurance Group, A Higginbotham Company. Vaughn, along with Higginbotham-Oklahoma Managing Directors Gray Holden and Chris Lavigne, will work to build the combined firm’s presence in Oklahoma.
