With a long-standing family tradition of insurance and more than 20 years of experience, Greg Overmyer recently launched an independent insurance agency – Overmyer Hall Associates. Greg’s brother Dan joined the Overmyer Hall Associates team quickly after the initial launch on January 15. The company, which will be based out of Columbus, Ohio, seeks to take advantage of favorable market conditions and offer big-broker experience on a local level. “I’ve always been passionate about Columbus and involved in the community. When launching this agency, I wanted to be part of something special on a local level,” said Greg. “Reconnecting with clients and pulling together our extremely talented team has been very exciting.”
Overmyer is a name synonymous with insurance in Ohio. Greg and Dan’s father, Ed Overmyer, launched Berwanger Overmyer Associates in 1973 along with partner Joe Berwanger. Berwanger Overmyer Associates grew to be the largest independent insurance agency in Central Ohio before it was sold in 2001 to Hilb Rogal and Hobbs Co. “My goal is for Overmyer Associates to be known for the moral and ethical leadership that is our foundation,” said Greg Overmyer. “With years of experience and a culture of caring for our clients and community, I know we’ll offer our clients a uniquely personal service, coupled with unparalleled knowledge and experience.”
Greg began his career in underwriting training and sales. Over the next two decades, Greg worked his way up through the ranks of BOA, which was sold to Hilb Rogal and Hobbs Co. (HRH) in 2001. The British firm Willis Group Holdings acquired HRH in 2008. Greg served as Managing Partner of Willis until 2010.
Dan, principal of Overmyer Hall Associates, most recently served as Vice President of Willis Group Holdings. Dan specializes in commercial underwriting and also worked with Greg at Berwanger Overmyer Associates/Hilb Rogal and Hobbs Co. In addition to their industry experience, the Overmyers draw on the significant knowledge they have gained through deep involvement in the Columbus community. The Overmyers are actively involved in the Central Ohio community, serving on the boards of The Greater Columbus Chamber of Commerce, United Way of Central Ohio, The American Red Cross of Columbus and The Columbus Symphony Orchestra.
