NEWSLETTER | DECEMBER 2022
WELCOME from the CEO
As 2022 comes to a close, Schauer Group is thankful to be celebrating a year of record growth for our company and important investments in our team that will help our clients, our people, and our community thrive.
We are dedicated to attracting and developing top talent and empowering our entire team to provide you with excellent service and unmatched industry expertise. To that end, we’ve made key hires across all areas of our company this year, growing our team significantly.
Building capacity across our company will help us sustain the record growth we are seeing in new clients, elevate our service, and provide comprehensive solutions to our business partners, such as certificate management and tracking for business liability insurance and risk management analysis and consulting services. Growing our team also positions us to continue to expand our geographic footprint throughout Northeast Ohio. Stay tuned for an exciting announcement in 2023.
As we grow, we remain committed to giving back to our Northeast Ohio community. I am honored to serve alongside Taylor Schauer as co-chair of this year’s United Way of Greater Stark County annual campaign. Our commitment to community spans our entire team. Our associates volunteer with more than 30 nonprofits that support human and social services across Northeast Ohio, and we hold key leadership positions on boards of some of the largest nonprofits in our region.
This year, we helped raise more than $10 million to strengthen the institutions that keep the fabric of our community healthy. We also recently completed our third annual Century of Service Nonprofit Award program, with our associates spending 100 hours volunteering to support a drop-in center that helps students and families thrive.
Thank you for your continued partnership in our success. Read on for more about these updates from Schauer Group, and please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or feedback.

ArtsinStark, The County Arts Council
Adam Lintz, CIC, CISR, Director, Business Insurance, shares his experience as a member of the ArtsinStark Board of Directors.
I have the privilege of supporting hundreds of Stark County cultural organizations and artists through my involvement with ArtsinStark – a nonprofit that uses the arts to create smarter kids, new jobs, and healthier communities.
The 50-year-old organization owns and operates the Cultural Center for the Arts, brings arts programs into our schools, revitalizes downtowns, and runs the annual Campaign for the Arts. During the past 12 years, ArtsinStark has awarded $15 million in grants to the county’s largest arts organizations and other nonprofits, artists and schools.
I have served as a member of the ArtsinStark Board of Directors for four years. My role includes advocating for ArtsinStark in the community, serving on grants committees, and volunteering my time at events and during the annual campaign.
The effect the arts can have in a community cannot be understated, from enriching a child’s creativity and improving academic performance to boosting economic activity to providing profound artistic experiences for people of all ages. ArtsinStark is doing the important work of ensuring the people of Stark County have plenty of opportunities to experience the arts in their own community.
It has been extremely rewarding to serve this organization and witness the great work they do to support and nurture the arts in our community. I have seen firsthand the direct impact that ArtsinStark has had on individual artists, arts organizations, and the community as a whole. By supporting these talented people, not only through grants but also with a lot of guidance and support, we can ensure the arts culture in our community is alive and well and can continue to thrive in the future.
