Flood insurance company Neptune Flood crossed $200 million of premium in force, while adding seven members to its newly formed advisory board, says Neptune CEO Trevor Burgess.

Crossing $200 million of premium in force brings Neptune to over 5% of the National Flood Insurance Program's size, the company says.

"Growing in scale highlighted the need for sage advice from a group of leading experts in the insurance industry," says Burgess in a news release. "My executive team is incredibly thankful that this group of seven leaders has agreed to help us in our journey to be the best possible flood insurance company for consumers, agents, and our risk-taking partners."

Neptune Flood specializes in providing flood-insurance solutions for residential and commercial properties. It uses advanced technology, data analytics and user-friendly online tools to aid consumers and businesses to find a fast way to obtain flood insurance policies tailored to their needs.

"The company aims to simplify the insurance-buying process while offering competitive rates and comprehensive coverage options," Neptune Flood says in a news release. 

Meanwhile, Neptune Flood says its new advisory board members include:

  • Jim Albert, the co-founder of Neptune, who served as the company's CEO through 2019 and held the role of chairman from 2020 to early 2023.
