Home » About Our Agency

We are your trusted independent insurance agency.

Your family, your business and your possessions are all important to you, but you may not know how to best protect them. We have the experience to navigate the unique risks you face, serving as your insurance advisor.

Bowman’s Insurance Group is derived from the acquisition or merger of over a dozen local agencies during the past 45 years. Separately, and now as part of the Bowman’s family, these agencies have fulfilled the coverage needs of individuals, families, and businesses for many years, throughout Central Pennsylvania. Today, all personal, business, and employee benefits services are coordinated out of our Palmyra, PA office.

As an independent agency, Bowman’s represents many top-rated insurance companies that allow the opportunity to provide a broad range of risk assessment and insurance solutions for our clients. Getting the right insurance protection, superior claim service, ultimate convenience, and the right price seems like a tall order, but Bowman’s Insurance Group makes it all possible.

Our History

1914

Bowman’s Insurance Agency began when local banker Eugene W Bowman was issued a license to transact business with the Phoenix Insurance Company of Hartford, CT. The original shop was set up in the Palmyra Bank Building.

1920

The Agency took shape when Eugene’s son, William K Bowman, joined the business.

Several years later, William’s younger Brother Simon joined the business and the partnership of the three Bowmans was formed. Although, it was “Bill” Bowman that created the identity of the Agency, guiding the operation for nearly fifty years.

1970

The last family ownership interest was surrendered in when Bill passed the agency to employee Dale O Daubert. Dale operated the business as a sole proprietorship.

1984

The Agency incorporated as Dasher Associates, Inc. The name “Dasher” was derived from the combination of names Dale (Daubert) and Sherman D Mohnshine, the long-time office manager, who assumed the helm as President, upon Daubert’s retirement in 1991 and guided the agency until 2006.

2000

The agency accepted an invitation to become a franchise partner of the Keystone Insurers Group (KIG), a prestigious, multi-state network of independent agencies.

2006

Current officers, Jeff Edwards and Cindy Pratt, assumed control of the agency after a collective 28 years of service under Dale and Sherm. Jeff and Cindy have been the faces of the Commercial Insurance and Personal Insurance Departments, respectively, since the early 1990s.

2012

The agency continued its M&A agenda by purchasing the David A Byerly Agency in Lebanon. Over the past twelve years, the Agency has assembled an all-star cast of experienced staff members who will lead the agency well into the future.
