About AHT


AHT is a full-service insurance brokerage and consulting firm with nationally recognized practices in areas including technology, manufacturing, government contracting and nonprofits. We are proud of the awards and recognition our firm has received. For example, Business Insurance has recently listed AHT as one of the “100 Largest Brokers of U.S. Business” and one of “Best Places to Work in Insurance.” Our collaborative, results-oriented approach and innovative solutions contribute to our consistent industry recognition.

We are equally proud of our clients, with locations throughout the United States and 42 other countries. Our clients have been Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the YearTM winners, members of the Deloitte & Touche’s Fast 50TM list, Chamber of Commerce honorees and U.S. Small Business Administration award winners. We believe that our success rests on the following three value propositions.

Employee Owned:  Excellence and Accountability

Our Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) allows us to attract and retain the best and brightest insurance professionals, creating an environment of stability and depth that few firms enjoy. Everyone has a stake in the company’s success. A loyal and diligent team of professionals supports our institutional knowledge of clients and the nuances of their needs and exposures. 

Privately Held:  A Focus on Clients, Not Shareholders

We pride ourselves on being an independent, privately held enterprise.  It is our strong belief that professional service firms such as ours should avoid the inherent conflicts arising from public markets. Our clients are the only constituency that truly matters to us.

Insurer Relationships: A Privileged Position

AHT has the attention of senior management at every major insurer because of our expertise in our specialties, including technology and government contractors.  Few other brokers could even name the person who directs the insurance carriers’ operations in these areas; much less have a strong personal relationship with the policy-makers.  We have cultivated these relationships over the years, and they have proven invaluable to AHT and our clients time after time.

Our headquarters have been in the historic community of Leesburg, VA, near the District of Columbia, since we were founded in 1921. We have additional offices in Seattle and New York.

We value our relationship with our communities, and believe in returning the support that they have given to us. Our annual charity golf tournaments consistently raise more than $50,000 for local charities each year. Our employees also hold office, volunteer, and contribute to numerous civic and charitable organizations.
