    Glenn Van Noy

    Commercial Insurance Broker
    Member of the California Metals Coalition
    Founding Partner of NTMA SFBA Chapter


    With 25 years of experience in commercial insurance, you might expect Glenn Van Noy to be well versed in the property and casualty business. But you might not expect him to be a driving force in the machining and metals industry.

    Since 1990, Glenn has specialized in providing risk management solutions and commercial insurance products, which he started tailoring for the machining sector in 1995. After beginning his career in sales and distribution – including owning his own Coca Cola distributorship – Glenn moved into sales at Sentry Mutual Insurance, where he eventually came to manage a team of 40 agents in the Southern California region. After 11 years with Sentry, Glenn moved to the brokerage side of the business, where he specialized in risk management solutions and insurance for the machining, plastic and electronics industry.

    Having witnessed decades of technology driven changes in the machining and tooling industry, Glenn strives to help his clients improve all aspects of their business operations, noting that the biggest challenge the industry faces is a lack of skilled labor. To that end, Glenn was one of the driving forces in helping to start a machining trade program at Mira Costa Community College. He serves as an advisor to the program and helped secure a $2.7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor to build a 22,000 square foot facility to house the program.

    Recognizing that a lack of skilled labor has been one of the major stumbling blocks for the industry, our team was instrumental in establishing a machining trade program at Mira Costa Community College.
