McGowan Insurance Group Inc. is the 21st-largest insurance agency in the Indianapolis area, according to the IBJ Book of Lists. In 2009, it wrote premiums of $50 million in such areas as commercial insurance, employee benefits, risk management and claims management.

McGowan Insurance was founded in 1930 by William McGowan, who led it until his death in 1977. At that time, the firm had only four employees and wrote $1 million in premiums.

The firm now employs 31 at its offices at 10 W. Market St.
