About us

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 the honoring the hard work of individuals and local businesses as were we 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.
