The new location, at Bounce Innovation Hub, plays a key role in the firm’s overall growth strategy, which is designed to help the company better serve clients, support the Northeast Ohio region, and attract and retain local talent.
Schauer Group is an independent risk management and insurance advisory firm that offers expert risk management consulting and customized business insurance, employee benefits, personal insurance and surety solutions.
In addition to its Akron location, the company also has offices in Canton, Cleveland and Alliance. Expanding into Akron not only makes sense from a geographic perspective but also will help Schauer Group’s team strengthen relationships and build expertise in the Akron market – ultimately, allowing the firm’s advisors to better meet the needs of area organizations.
“At Schauer Group, we define our success not only by our business metrics but by our impact in the community,” said client advisor and Akron market leader Brandyn Neal. “Our goal is to be a true partner and understand the challenges that are specific to the different markets we serve. We’re excited to deepen our investment in Akron and support the region’s businesses with our risk management solutions.”
Neal already works closely with Schauer Group’s Akron-area clients and has strong ties to the greater Akron community, including serving on the boards of United Way of Summit & Medina; Big Brothers Big Sisters of Summit, Medina, and Stark Counties; and Direction Home Akron Canton. The team he leads in Akron is engaged with the Greater Akron Chamber, the Akron Urban League, and the Akron Community Foundation.
In addition to strengthening its presence in the Akron community, Schauer Group’s new office also is expected to help the firm continue to attract and retain top talent in the region.
“Our strategy always has been to recruit and retain Northeast Ohio’s best and brightest and empower them to do excellent work,” said Aimee Belden, executive vice president and chief operating officer. “By offering more choice when it comes to office environment, and by offering an office location that is conveniently located for students attending our region’s larger universities, we are excited to expand our talent pool and keep growing our dynamic team.”
