Michael J. Krupin
Michael J. Krupin, CLU, has ranked among the top 1% of life insurance producers for the majority of his career, spanning over 40 years. His success through the years results from his commitment to always represent the client, never the carrier, and to remain independent, consistent, trustworthy, flexible and enthusiastic. As a result of this philosophy, Michael attracts clients including the nation’s leading A-list individuals in entertainment, sports, business and healthcare, and has handled cases worth over $100 million.
An entrepreneur at heart, Michael left insurance carrier Provident Mutual (now Nationwide Insurance), where he was a top producer, to form Krupin Associates in Richmond, Virginia in 1980. He quickly built a substantial practice that realized over $2 billion in life insurance policies in a short time period. Michael and his son, Bryan, moved to Beverly Hills in 1996 to form Gilbert-Krupin. In 2012, Michael, Bryan and Ashley Krupin formed Krupin Partners to continue to serve clients throughout the country from the firm’s Beverly Hills, Richmond and New York offices.
A highly-sought speaker with an interest in fostering the next generation of insurance and estate planning professionals, Michael regularly leads discussions for the nation’s top law firms, business managers and financial advisors on the nuances of utilizing life insurance for wealth management.
