About Smith Manus

Over 40 Years In The Business

The Smith Manus story began in 1979 by Co-Founders Tom Smith and Jack Manus. Tom’s son, Brook, assumed the agency’s leadership in the late ’90s and remains president today. Smith Manus has expanded tremendously across North America, becoming a premier provider of surety.

In an effort to create surety capacity for industries that had historically struggled to attain it, Smith co-founded Lexon Insurance Company in 2001. Smith and his partners grew Lexon into a top 10 surety prior to its sale in 2018.
