Howard Baker Saunders Scott & John Saunders- Saunders Insurance Agency Saunders Insurance Agency

The values and success of Saunders Insurance Agency can all be attributed to the late Howard Baker Saunders. Howard joined the insurance business upon completing his degree at The Ohio State University where he won 2 Big Ten championships in golf. In 1951 Howard joined the Robinson-Davis-Saunders Agency and in 1964 rolled the agency into what is today’s Saunders Insurance Agency LLC. Howard’s guiding principle was simple: protect what matters most to people.

That principle has stuck with Saunders Insurance Agency as we enter the family’s 3rd generation of operations. SIA now offers all forms of insurance ranging from personal auto & home to large commercial business. We specialize in group health and life insurance (employee benefits), commercial property and liability, professional liability, public entities, schools, and commercial auto insurance.
