Seltzer Group Partners: Carrying Forward the Legacy of Knies Insurance

The roots of our agency’s history are traced back to the 1930’s when the found­er, Mr. George Stradling, began an independent insurance agency in Honey Brook, PA.

The initial company contract awarded to Mr. Stradling was with Travelers. To this day, Travelers continues to be a major partner within our agency. It is this type of commitment and longevity that has been instilled in every principal and employee to date.

In the mid-50’s, Stradling & Spece Insurance Agency, Inc. was born continuing the core values, ethical business practices and trusted advisors that the agency was founded upon.

This partnership between Albert Stradling and Clarence Spece catapulted the agency to new heights. The agency grew both with new clients and additional employees. In 1977, after ten years with Travelers Insurance as an agency representative, Robert “Bob” Knies was offered to purchase Mr. Spece’s partnership share and joined the agency with Mr. Stradling.

Bob brought to the agency a focus in life insurance and financial benefits. His efforts to grow this side of the business proved to be successful. In 2007, headed by Greg and Julie Knies, Knies Insurance Group, Inc. was born. Our operating focus was to continue with the same set of established core values the agency was built upon.

During the next 14 years we were blessed by doubling the size of the agency through organic growth and acquisition of two local agencies. With this growth came the need for additional back-office support and human resources.

To fill those gaps, we made a difficult but very rewarding decision to partner with Seltzer Group Partners, located in Orwigsburg, PA. Seltzer Group, like our agency has been a long-time member of the Keystone Insurers Group so we were very familiar with the Seltzer agency and some of their key personnel.

We recognized that Seltzer Group and our agency shared a similar vision about how we conduct our business.

Integrity, honesty, customer service focused are just a few of the shared values we abide by. We look forward to working with you!

– Greg Knies
