Professional Program Insurance Brokerage
Revolutionizing the Insurance Industry One Program at a Time
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.

When we formed Tangram Insurance Services back in 1999, we wanted to create a different kind of insurance intermediary for our brokers and the industry. We wanted to be a powerful connector that could deliver compelling insurance solutions at the heart of everything we do. Our mandate was to come up with the right combination of programs, features, services and value, designed to grow your business.
This meant hiring great people with a deep, collective experience and energy to develop and launch specialty insurance programs. It meant partnering with top-tier carriers equally as committed to the niche markets and products we created. It meant a strong resolve to provide responsive client servicing, not just lip service.
Today it means, “How can we do better than anyone else?” and “How can we challenge ourselves and the industry to walk towards progress that we can all be proud of?” It is in our DNA to relentlessly push the boundaries of our own potential so we can be the best for our partners.
As a Managing General Underwriter in the specialty program space, we sit in a unique seat in the insurance vertical. We have the ability to affect great progress and productive outcomes for our brokers and clients and carriers.
Every program we build, every person we hire, every strategic decision we make- revolves around the central premise that our partners and clients must benefit from its clear and undeniable value. With this guiding principle, Tangram will continue to power into the future with relevant insurance solutions, awesome talent, and an audacious vision to do it better than anyone else.
