Harden: Providing certainty through good times and bad for more than 65 years

Harden was founded in Jacksonville, Florida, in 1953 as a provider of personal insurance. Today, we have become the largest comprehensive insurance, risk management, and employee benefits firm in the region.

Founder M.C. Harden, Jr. built the company on two key principles that still guide us today: a focus on client objectives and a commitment to community stewardship.

In the mid-1970s, M.C. (Ceree) Harden, III joined the firm, expanding the scope of services and the client roster. The decade of the 1990s was defined by careful attention to process and the development of a new strategic client service model. This approach has evolved into our proprietary InSight model, now a hallmark of the firm and a nationally recognized delivery model.
