For us, It’s always been about adventure
Our founder, Val Stratford, grew up here in Utah with local values of family, supporting his community, and dreaming big. When he started out in the industry, he knew he always wanted to work only at a local independent insurance agency so his responsibility could always be to the people in his community and not some far-off company.
In 2004, after 20 years of experience, Val took the risk to step out on his own and founded Stratford Insurance Group a full-service insurance agency focused on helping their clients follow the Path to Protection. We started small with only 4 employees, but he had a big dream to care for the future of our community by prioritizing honesty, hard work, and educating his clients.
Over a decade later, the SIG family has grown nearly 5-fold and we work with the most respected carriers across the country. We’re still as dedicated to honoring the hard work of individuals and local businesses as we were on our first day.
Every business and individual has its own unique path to success. We’re here to join you on that path to adventure, and guide you through your path to protection.
Unlike a captive, or direct insurance company who only offers its own proprietary products, our agency is 100% independent of any one company. Many insurance consumers don’t fully understand just how important that really is. When it comes to something as important as insurance, it’s imperative that you work with an agency who has an in-depth knowledge of multiple insurance products, companies, and guidelines — not just one.
At the end of the day, what separates one agent from another, is their ability to proactively service their policy holders, and their knowledge of the insurance industry, products, and different situations that may present themselves to their clients.
