Elijah Norton

Executive Chairman, and President

Elijah Norton founded the company’s predecessor in 2011. As the original founder, Elijah has overseen the organization grow from its inception with only 2 employees in 2011 to a group of companies that generates over $100m per year in annual revenue, serves thousands of customers per year, and employs over 50 people.

Elijah originally started out the organization as an agency selling service contracts that were administered by other service contract providers; however, as the business grew in 2014, he decided to start his own administrator in response to him feeling that their offerings, customer service, and claims were poorly handled.

In 2018, under Elijah’s leadership, Veritas began to pursue international expansion opportunities and has now expanded into multiple global markets. 

As Executive Chairman and President, Elijah’s role is to grow the business both domestically in the United States and internationally and service and cultivate the relationships we have with our business partners. Elijah plays a personal role in developing our business relationships and prides himself on being very easily accessible to our business partners.

Elijah was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, but moved to Arizona in 2015. He currently resides in Scottsdale, Arizona. Elijah graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science. 

In his free time, Elijah enjoys traveling and hiking and is a history buff. He was named after, and is a direct descendant of, Elijah Hise Norton, who was a US Congressman from Missouri during the civil war, one of the primary authors of the Missouri Constitution, and a Missouri supreme court justice.

Elijah is a licensed insurance agent in every US state and owns and operates several other successful businesses.
