David George was a banker for 10 years. Starting off his banking career, while finishing Ball State University, he worked for Muncie Federal Savings & Loan. Upon graduating from B.S.U, and the bank having been acquired by American National Bank, he worked as a Loan Officer and eventually led the Consumer Lending Department. Late in his banking career, another merger occurred, this time with his employer being acquired by Old National Bank.
Having never thought of himself as a “banker”, George departed and began his Insurance life with Andy Thompson and The Thompson Group. David spent 6 years learning from one of the most progressive agents around, aggressive marketing, relentless pursuit of good clients and being a “student” of the industry are traits that have developed over the years.
In 2006, when opportunity came calling, after much deliberation, he accepted a position with Beauchamp & McSpadden, dba Morrison Galliher Insurance. A larger agency, with many markets and multi-generational ownership, Morrison Galliher proved to be a great partner! Many successes where achieved and the diversity of working on large complex social services accounts, medical malpractice for physicians and hospitals, along with manufacturing insurance, school insurance and other program insurance proved meaningful. In 2008, Beauchamp & McSpadden were recognized as the Agency of the Year in the State of Indiana, by the I.I.A.A. – Independent Insurance Agents of Indiana, our State Association. This was a proud moment, never to be forgotten! In 2008, George was also named “Young Agent of the Year” by the I.I.A.A. perhaps his most important award.
The thoughts to do something different, something independent grew over the years. The ability to understand cash flow and balance sheets and income statements from his days as a banker makes for a unique Insurance Agent. Bonding for insurance clients was a natural and George has a lot of experience working with contractors, no matter how big or small that they might be!
The urge to create a unique agency, one that was based upon principles that took 20 years to develop wouldn’t stop. In 2012, David George took the plunge and branded George Insurance Group. Supported by Stewart Brimner & Peters, a large Fort Wayne agency, who’s 4 progressive owners and longtime friends saw an opportunity to team up! This agency is being built from the ground up to be different. Not just in theory, not just with hype, but truly to be different. Relationships have never mattered more than now! Customer Service has never been needed more than now. Why not call us and see what we mean? When we say that a “handshake means something”, we mean it. We will work hard to overwhelm you with customer service, responsiveness and personal touch that I trust that you have never seen.
