Overview & Philosophy

Our Philosophy
We believe in doing the right thing by those we serve. Our team of thought leaders approach each client proactively, with ingenuity and foresight. We build partnerships that truly matter.

Our History
Henry Miltenberger founded the company in 1959 as a partnership with the Louisiana State Bar Association (giving Gilsbar its name: Group Insurance Louisiana State Bar). This partnership launched a national insurance services provider that now employs more than 300 trusted professionals. We are honoured to continue to serve our very first customer, the LSBA, and many other distinguished clients over the decades.

Our Core Values
Our clients' interests are our main priority, and we commit to always working:
With integrity
With a long-term view
With all of our might and creativity
With a constant strive for excellence
To achieve a reasonable profit, and
With an intention to continually invest in developing our people, services, products and markets.
