ABOUT CRAIG & LEICHT
Before founding their own company, Matt, along with his sister Amy, managed the Houston branch of the national wholesaler, RPS. Raised as second generation insurance nerds by their parents, who owned and operated a brokerage, they were taught the ins and outs of the independent wholesale side of the business from an early age.
