Our History

In 2011, GMI, N.A. formed the Norman Insurance Agency as a general agency brokerage in an effort to carry forth the industry-wide legacy of the late GMI N.A. founder, Norman A. Trudel’s ongoing pursuit for innovation and value-added client services.  Norman founded the original company in 1980 and opened its first office in New York City.  A true pioneer in transportation insurance, Norman made his mark in the industry by forming a progressive commercial auto program that provided affordable coverage for the transportation industry.

In 2012, GMI, N.A. refined the focus for Norman Insurance as a specialty brokerage and was renamed Norman Specialty Insurance Group, which is located in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania.
