Professional Program Insurance Brokerage


In our ever-changing world, brokers have the option to compete on price or seek out categories that are not overworked by the insurance industry. Professional Program Insurance Brokers (PPIB) has chosen to market to exciting and unique industries with limited distribution channels.

PPIB was formed in 1993 to design insurance programs for industries that did not have them. PPIB first tackled the permanent cosmetic industry. This service includes tattooing of eyebrows, eyeliner and lips. To better serve the industry, PPIB President, Susan Preston, set up a nonprofit association for permanent cosmetic technicians that sets and promotes industry standards. From this alliance with industry representatives, PPIB developed underwriting standards, applications, and endorsements that continue to serve this market.

In 1995, tattoo industry leaders asked PPIB for a program like the one for permanent cosmetics, followed by the Medispa/Laser industry in the year 2000. At that time, PPIB worked with doctors, laser specialists and trainers to understand lasers, Botox/dermal fillers, medical peels, and wellness programs. To assist clients, PPIB developed consent, medical history and aftercare forms for these disciplines.

Twenty five years later, PPIB still leads the way in insurance innovation. Some of the newest additions to our program line include Smoke Shop retail locations, Pyrotechnics, Medical Directors to the Home health Industry, Electronic Cigarettes and Wellness Centers.

Throughout the years, PPIB has embraced diversity in their staff. Now employing over 30 people, PPIB has been successful in developing insurance carriers. Many of the company leaders are women, as well as the top sales people/underwriters. This ability to promote diversity in both programs and staffing is what makes PPIB unique in the insurance industry.

While PPIB writes insurance policies all over the United States, all insurance programs and industry careers arise from their Novato office. PPIB is proud of the work they are doing and the diversity of their people.
