Our History

Realizing the need for an insurance agency that could not only provide coverage solutions for all types of insurance but also exceed service expectations for all clients, the founding partners of Benchmark Insurance opened its doors in 1982.

Today, Benchmark's management team is continuing in the footsteps of the early guiding principle of building and maintaining a trusted relationship with all of our clients. One of the most distinctive ways Benchmark has accomplished this goal is by providing excellent administration of and creative solutions for employee benefits, commercial and personal insurance. It is our passion for excellence that has made Benchmark a recognized leader in Central Ohio.
