Professional Bio

Founded in 1885, Crane Agency has taken a personal approach to serving the insurance needs of businesses and individuals for 135 years. Our Brokers understand the needs of our clients because our organization was built by business owners and families, just like you.

Today, Crane is one of the largest and oldest independently held, full-service
insurance brokerage firms in the country. Our team of over 270 dedicated professionals possesses the knowledge, experience, and resources to deliver the insurance products and services designed to fit your specific needs.

After carefully examining your insurance needs, we work to partner your business with an insurance company. Crane Agency has developed close relationships with almost every primary insurance carrier, and many of them have awarded us their highest level of recognition. Our business insurance placements include Commercial Property Coverage, General Liability, Crime Coverage, Cyber Liability, Errors & Omissions Coverage, Management Liability, Employment Practices Liability, Business Automobile, and Workers’ Compensation. The companies we represent include Acuity, Cincinnati, Liberty Mutual, Nationwide, Philadelphia, Selective, State Auto, and Travelers. We have also worked to establish relationships with several markets to fill the growing need for wind-hail deductible buy-back programs.

Serving as your advocate, Crane Agency, puts our relationships to work for you. In addition to Business Insurance, we also offer Risk Management Solutions, Surety & Fidelity (Bonding) Services, Employee Benefits Consulting, and Personal Insurance.

As an independent broker unit within Crane, my team brings nearly 40 years of proven experience, providing comprehensive habitational insurance solutions to the St. Louis Apartment Association. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of service. I look forward to meeting you.
