Professional Experience
BCG Property and Casualty Division, Scottsdale, AZ 2021-Present
Business Insurance Consultant – Our P&C Division originated as Schwartz Insurance Agency, founded in Chicago in 1919 by Austin Schwartz’ great grandfather and subsequently run by his grandfather and uncles until its sale to a large national brokerage in 2015. The Arizona headquarters of Schwartz Insurance Agency was established as a separately owned and operated division in 2013 and joined Alera as a division of Benefit Commerce Group in 2021. As a result of this merger, our BCG P&C Division has the added strength of national resources along with the power of local relationships combined to result in the most effective solutions for our customers.
