President

Steven Stramara CIC

Steve joined the Seltzer Group in 1989. Initially hired to sell and service personal and commercial insurance products, he quickly proved to be integral to the growth and direction of the agency. Drawing on experiences from employment with the Department of the Army and the philosophy of leadership and teamwork fostered while proudly serving in the United States Marine Corps and Army Reserves, Steve’s dedication to the Seltzer Team and its clients is unmatched.

During the 1990s, Steve implemented and managed the agency’s first information technology system, ensuring improved and more efficient customer service.

In 2003, Steve was instrumental in innovating the risk management first process which led to improved customer outcomes, lower costs, and safer work environments for Seltzer clients. His approach was revolutionary in the insurance industry and provided customers with superior results compared to the traditional insurance process. He quickly gained a reputation as being an expert in Pennsylvania Workers Compensation Insurance and was frequently invited to speak at business, manufacturing, and industry leader meetings. In fact, he was selected to speak before the Pennsylvania Legislature on the topic of Workers Compensation Industry reform.

Steve co-founded and served as president of Keystone Comp Control, a multi-state group of agencies dedicated to improving client results through insurance, human resource, safety, compliance, and risk management strategies.

In 2005, Steve worked with key partners to start Pennsylvania’s first integrated risk management company, East Coast Risk Management and serves on its board of directors. In 2012, he helped establish Keystone Surety Associates, a dedicated bonding agency, and served as its first president and board chairman.

Steve’s forward-thinking nature, vast experience, commitment to learning, and drive to always improve have guided the Setzer Group over the past 30 years. He uses these qualities to lead and inspire the entire Seltzer Team to strive for excellence and demonstrate that same commitment to their clients. He has designed, implemented and managed procedures and processes formulated to benefit clients.

Steve has been recognized by his peers as a leader in the insurance and risk management industries.  He currently serves on the MMG Insurance and Selective Insurance Agents Advisory Boards.  Steve has led the Seltzer Team to national recognition as a Big I / Regan Consulting Best Practices Agency since 2019.

Consistent with his commitment to ongoing improvement, Steve maintains several industry designations, including Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) and Certified Work Comp Advisor (CWCA). He has been a member of Vistage International since 2012 and was a Vistage Leadership Award finalist in 2020.

Steve knows that being a good business leader means thinking about more than just business. After volunteering as an assistant coach for the local Special Olympics volleyball team (his wife was the head coach), Steve proposed the idea of a golf tournament to benefit local Special Olympics programs in 1998. It has been an annual event ever since.

In 2019, Seltzer Group Charities Foundation was formed and named Steve as its chair. The nonprofit now provides financial and other resources to organizations supporting individuals with special needs and children.

Steve has served on the board of the North Central Highway Safety Network since its founding in 1997 and is currently its board president.

Steve enjoys spending time with his family, travel, and all types of exercise. He can frequently be found near the top of the Peloton® leaderboard or on a weekend run with his wife, Natalie. His favorite pastime is a spirited game of hide and seek with his three grandchildren.

Senior Vice President

John Campomizzi

John Campomizzi has been with Seltzer Group Partners since he was a college intern in 2007. During his early years, Bob Seltzer took him under his wing and served as a personal mentor. Over the years, he has worked his way up the chain of command due to his demonstration of leadership abilities combined with his outstanding business development skills.

John currently serves as the Senior Vice President of Client Success for the agency and focuses on bringing solutions to a variety of clients, ranging from personal home and auto relationships to large businesses with hundreds of employees.

In his role, John works closely with every team member within the agency to assist with new business generation all while focusing on the importance of client service and satisfaction.

When he is not expanding his knowledge and developing client service expansion strategies, John enjoys spending time with his wife, three daughters, and son; especially vacationing anywhere that has a beach and body of water.

Director of Business Development

Rob Schmidt

Rob brings almost 20 years of experience in the industry to our organization. After graduating from Muhlenberg College in 2001, he started his experience in a claims role for an insurance company. During those years, Rob gained a lot of insight from the carrier side of things before deciding to transition into the agency environment.

Rob finds the most important thing in the industry is helping his clients succeed. The success comes from educating his clients and providing them a greater understanding of the product, and what they are purchasing. Through this approach, he can form longstanding relationships that he values on both a personal, and professional level.

In his spare time, Rob cherishes the moments with both his family and his community. Whether it is volunteering as a coach for youth sports, serving on the board for both the Greater Valley YMCA and Muhlenberg College, or standing on the committee for Phoebe Ministries Institutional Advancement; Rob finds great importance in giving back to those around him.

Lisa Doran has been taking pride in fulfilling individual insurance needs for over 30 years. While she works to save her clients money during the process, her number one focus is ensuring that the client, their families, and their assets are fully protected. Lisa is full of information in the insurance world, but she heavily concentrates on establishing long-term relationships and making a promise to be there for her clients if a tragedy does occur.

Her specialty with Seltzer Group Partners has been providing insurance products and services for high-net-worth clients.

She lives and breathes Schuylkill County, as she has resided there her entire life, and has valued the friendships she has formed with many of her clients and her families. When she is not working to ensure all her consumers’ needs are taken care of, Lisa can be spotted spending time with her husband of 35 years, Joe.

Crane Insurance Agency

John Crane

Karen Travor

Joann Clark CISR

John Crane

John Crane began working in the insurance business at John J. Crane Insurance Agency in 1983, under his father, John Crane Sr., who started the agency in 1950. Growing up in an “insurance household” allowed John to see and learn all he could about the business firsthand before officially beginning his career. In 1993 the John J. Crane Insurance Agency was officially changed from John Crane Sr. to John Crane Jr.

Over the years, John has found his niche in providing valued insurance to contractors, pizza shop owners, restaurant owners, and real estate investors -or rather, this niche found him. The agency didn’t always specialize in these clients, but John has certainly filled this need in the local market.

John loves most about his career by providing insurance and quality coverage to fellow small business owners. As a small business owner, John understands and has experienced many of the worries, problems, successes, and failures most entrepreneurs face, which means he understands his clients! Things like making payroll, preparing for quarterlies, managing time, facing burnout, and learning how to delegate, are just a few of these issues all small business owners face. But above all, John knows there isn’t a money tree growing in your backyard!

John isn’t a “salesman” and is proud of that; rather, he listens to his clients to find the best solution. Small business owners often have ups and downs, times when they don’t have to work too hard yet have incredible success, and times when they work up to 12 hours a day for long periods of time and still face failures. How do we know this? Because John is a small business owner, too. Being a small business owner–can give you a perspective that few people will understand.

Aside from being an entrepreneur, John is a loving husband to his wife Carol and father to his two sons, Pat, a student at Drexel University, and Sean, a student at King’s College. John enjoys doing outside work, like cutting grass and caring for his yard. He also enjoys biking, skiing, and reading

Karen Travor

A graduate of Blue Mountain High School and Elizabethtown College, Karen started her career as a bookkeeper at John J. Crane Insurance Agency in 2005. Ten years later, she earned her Property and Casualty Insurance license and became a Commercial Lines Representative.

Karen loves working with and getting to know her clients and their businesses. She enjoys helping her clients stay organized and knowledgeable regarding their insurance policies.

Karen enjoys spending her free time hiking, biking, and reading. She resides in Orwigsburg, PA, with her husband, Doug. Karen has two children, Mark and Madison.

Joann Clark CISR

A Cardinal Brennan High School graduate, Joann started her career in the insurance business in 1988 as a secretary and became a licensed agent two years later. In 2001 she began working at John J. Crane Insurance Agency and completed her Customer Insurance Service Representative (CISR) designation in 2003.

Joann enjoys working in both Personal and Commercial Insurance. Her experience comes from assisting individuals in insuring their homes, automobiles, and small businesses. She loves getting to know her clients as it makes solving their insurance worries and complications easier.

Joann enjoys scrapbooking, reading, visiting wineries and attending anything her daughters are involved in! She resides in Ashland, PA, with her two daughters, Molly and Emily.
