Ohio Farm Bureau and Nationwide have a history built on cooperation. Nationwide was founded by Ohio farmers who believed in working together for their community. Today, we continue a strong partnership based on this belief.
Tell us about the place where you live. We have offices in North Canton and Canton in order to serve the greater Stark County area, a place with a small town feel and a great place to raise a family.
What values do the people in your community share? Hard working and resilience come to mind. We have been able to adapt to the loss of thousands of jobs since the closing of the Hoover Company in the last decade.
How important is community to your agency? We believe in giving back and have been involved in youth sports, Jaycees, YMCA and the Chamber of Commerce, to name a few.
How do you continually provide the On Your Side experience to members? We differentiate ourselves from most agencies, 1-800 and internet carriers by providing On Your Side reviews to our members annually. Their needs change and certainly their coverage needs change. We owe it to them to make sure there are no gaps in coverage, and that they are getting our best pricing.
What does “member focused” mean to you? To truly understand the needs of our members by using a consultative approach and asking a lot of questions.
Why do you work for Nationwide? It is a tribute to my father Ray Radosevic, who founded the agency in 1950 as a Farm Bureau agent, that I have followed in his footsteps. I also have a great team led by Mary DiLoreto, who has been with me for 18 years.
Other than insurance, why would you encourage someone to be a Farm Bureau member? Farm Bureau is extremely important as agriculture is the No. 1 industry in Ohio. Increasingly consumers want to know the source of the food they serve their families.
Ohio Farm Bureau is a sponsor of Nationwide and endorses Nationwide policies, many of which are discounted for members of Ohio Farm Bureau. Please ask a nearby agent for more details, or visit Nationwide’s website for Farm Bureau members.
