GALION — Dostal & Kirk Insurance and Financial Services is pleased to announce that Scharer Insurance Agency is now part of the D&K business family. Owners Mike Dostal and Jeff Kirk completed the acquisition in January 2017.
“We are excited about our acquisition of Scharer Insurance in Marion,” Dostal said. “This allows us to increase our footprint in Central Ohio and continue to serve the Route 23 corridor between our existing Powell, Galion and Bucyrus offices. We are honored to work with John Scharer and his staff continuing the legacy that his family has built in the Marion community.”
John Scharer plans to stay on at the Marion location and shares his excitement about the future of the agency moving forward.
“My father Ron built his reputation by taking great care of his clients, and we have worked to maintain that legacy for the past 68 years,” Scharer said. “I have known Mike Dostal and Jeff Kirk for several years and we are like minded, family business owners who share common values and a common vision for how to take care of customers.”
The Marion-based Scharer Insurance Agency name and all associates including Scharer will remain, while Logan Kirk joins the team as an Insurance Advisor. This new partnership expands insurance company offerings, resulting in more choices and options for new and existing clients at all locations.
