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 for clients nationwide. While the firm has operated a Cleveland-area office for more than a decade, this is the first time the team has been located downtown.
The new office, in the U.S. Bank Centre, was strategically selected to help Schauer Group strengthen relationships and continue to build expertise in the Cleveland 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 Bryan Schauer, executive vice president and Cleveland market leader. “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 Cleveland and support the region’s businesses with our risk management solutions.”
Beyond its client base, the team in Cleveland has existing partnerships with several community organizations – including the American Heart Association, Shoes and Clothes for Kids, the Cleveland Leadership Center and The City Club of Cleveland – and will continue to identify other ways the firm can give back.
In addition to strengthening Schauer Group’s investment in the Cleveland community, the firm’s downtown office also is expected to help Schauer Group continue to deliver on its goal of attracting and retaining the region’s top talent.
Since the relocation, the Cleveland-based team already has hired two new advisors, who will focus on new business development, and an additional client manager, who will help service the firm’s existing accounts. The firm also is working with local talent organizations to help connect Cleveland college students to Schauer Group’s internship program.
“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, Schauer Group executive vice president and chief operating officer. “We know that a vibrant downtown culture is a key differentiator for many job candidates. By offering more choice when it comes to office environment, and by offering an office location that is conveniently located for college students, we are excited to expand our talent pool and keep growing our dynamic team.”
