Our History

Built One Customer at a Time

Al Bourdeau, Founder

Al Bourdeau, Founder

It takes good business sense and a sound business philosophy to make a business grow. These qualities have been a part of the Al Bourdeau Insurance Agency since founder Al Bourdeau left his farm home in Saginaw early in 1900's and came to work at General Motors in Flint. In 1921, Al left his job at General Motors to sell auto insurance. He began by pulling into the parking lot at General Motors and selling auto insurance policies from of the trunk of his car.

Al's son Donald joined him in 1945. Together father and son ran the business for many years, until the business was later taken over by grandson Robert L. Bourdeau. Under the leadership of Robert L. Bourdeau the business enjoyed steady growth throughout the 60's and into the early 70's. In 1971, Robert's brother, Jacques, moved to Port Huron to open up the Agency's second office. Over 30 other agencies have become part of Al Bourdeau Insurance Agency over the past 40 years, and four more locations have since been established in Southeast Michigan. The Agency now has locations in Flint, Port Huron, Williamston, Clarkston, Farmington Hills and East Lansing.
