PLC is celebrating our 50th birthday in 2011. Started in Seattle in 1961 as “Potter & Thuesen”, the company was originally a combination insurance and real-estate sales firm. Following the retirement of Bjorn Thuesen in 1964, Bob Leonard joined the company and our name was changed to “Potter and Leonard”. Since those days the company has focused strictly on insurance sales, representing some to the finest national and regional insurance companies in the nation.

PLC has grown from an office of three to one now employing over 25 people and has become one of the largest regional insurance brokerage firms in the Puget Sound region. As the company grew, the offices were relocated five times in Seattle, Kenmore, and finally to our current location in Lynnwood.

While we have grown and are now licensed in all 50 states, we’re most proud of the kind of personalized professional services we continue to provide to our customers, just like we did 50 years ago. As we move forward into our next half-century, whether you are a large business or one of our clients buying home or auto insurance, you can expect to receive the same friendly, knowledgeable help with all your insurance needs.

We are proud to be an Independent Agent, serving our customers first! As we celebrate this milestone in our history, we thank all our clients who have placed their trust in us, and hope you’ll join us in the celebration.
