On August 4, 1969, The Skala Insurance Agency (scratch agency) was founded by my father John R. Skala, Sr. The agency has always been located in Geauga County, Ohio, although there were several main office location changes over the years. Presently, the main office is located in Bainbridge Township/Chagrin Falls, Ohio, in a well-known established professional building, where it has been for over twenty (20) years. The Mantua satellite location, started in 2004, has been an important part of the success of The Skala Agency. This office location continues to grow and experiences a high volume of walk-in business due to its location near a dollar store and pizza shop within an established shopping plaza. The Skala Insurance Agency has grown to be one of the largest Nationwide Agencies within the state of Ohio with a focus on offering our members personalized service to meet their individual needs. The agency has been a success largely due to being actively involved in the community. Over the years, the agency has thrived on referrals from being involved with local groups like the Jaycees, the Chambers of Commerce, the Kenston and Crestwood local school districts, and the Rotary Club. The Skala Insurance Agency has been serving the residents of Bainbridge Township, Mantua Township, and the surrounding areas of Geauga County, Portage County, and Eastern Cuyahoga Counties for the past forty-four (44) years. We have been in the top 3% of Nationwide Agencies earning twenty-seven (27) President's Conferences (the highest award given by Nationwide Insurance Company to an Agent), qualifying for thirty-seven (37) Champion Awards, or its equivalent over the years, and have achieved numerous company and industry awards including qualifying for MDRT three (3) years.
The Skala Insurance Agency is a full service agency, providing personal and commercial property and casualty insurance. Our Agency's staff combined has over 100 years of insurance knowledge and experience! Our goal is to customize coverages to meet the individual needs of each member. Because of this approach, The Skala Insurance Agency has a trusted reputation as being "On Your Side" when you need it most.
