McMichael Insurance is a family owned insurance agency established in 1976.

McMichael Insurance provides Personal, Business, Life and Medicare Insurance to clients throughout the United States. Founded over 45 years ago, McMichael Insurance is a rapidly expanding independent insurance agency. We are large enough to insure families and businesses of nearly every size and in every state, yet small enough to care as demonstrated by quickly and efficiently handling every client interaction with professionalism, accuracy, and genuine friendliness. We purposely call all our agency associates Client Experience Managers so that they know they have the empowerment to do whatever it takes to bring first-class service to all our prospects and clients.

Our History

McMichael Insurance was founded by Lester McMichael, who first received his insurance license on December 12, 1975. Lester’s many years of community involvement with the local junior baseball league – serving as president for many years – gave him a great connection to the people of the community. This strong community connection helped launch a successful insurance career, earning him nearly immediate recognition as a sales leader.

Throughout the years McMichael Insurance has continued to grow and add new insurance carriers, transitioning into a premier independent insurance agency. The agency continues to place a strong emphasis on education and customer service, which were the cornerstone principals that existed since our inception.

The agency experienced rapid growth in the late 2000’s, purchasing the former Ralston Insurance Agency of Portage Lakes and also the Baccellieri Insurance Agency of Uniontown. The agency now has 2 offices, one in Streetsboro and the other in Uniontown.

Gerald joined the agency 1982 and has served as its president since 2001. Gerald began his career in personal insurance, but in 1990 launched the business insurance division of the agency where he now spends the majority of his time. In 1994, Gerald obtained his Certified Insurance Counselor designation.

Dennis McMichael

Dennis joined the agency in 1989 and now serves as its vice president, earning his Certified Insurance Counselor designation in 1999. Dennis heads up the personal insurance division and is also in charge of marketing.

Community Involvment

The purpose of Stand for Generosity is to reward and recognize an individual who has shown Generous Acts of Kindness.

Stand for Generosity is named after the founder of McMichael Insurance, Lester McMichael, who started the agency from ground zero in 1976. Throughout the years he has shown a lifestyle of Generosity, Kindness, and Graciousness to his family, friends, co-workers, and clients. When we read in the New Testament about the Good Samaritan, you can’t but help think of Lester (and Marianne, his wife of 50+ years). The McMichael “boys” now run the insurance agency and are using Stand for Generosity to thank him for his lifetime of sacrifice, example, and love. Lester and Marianne still reside in Streetsboro and still ask about the latest happenings with the office. Thank you dad & mom!
