Bowman’s Insurance Group is the product of several acquisitions and mergers, from over a dozen local agencies over the last 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 your local independent agency, Bowman’s represents many top-rated insurance companies. This gives us the opportunity to provide many risk assessment and insurance solutions for our clients. Getting the proper insurance protection, responsive claim service, convenient service, and the right price seems like a tall order, but Bowman’s Insurance Group makes it all possible.
Why Go Independent?
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.
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.
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.
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.
The agency accepted an invitation to become a franchise partner of the Keystone Insurers Group (KIG), a prestigious, multi-state network of independent agencies.
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.
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.
