The Schwendeman Agency Inc. is a third-generation, independent agency, serving the insurance, planning and financial service needs of businesses and individuals throughout Ohio and West Virginia. Our company was founded more than 80 years ago on three simple fundamental principles. These are ingrained in our culture and define the nature of our client relationships:
- Treat people the way they want to be treated
- Provide superior value
- Always put the customer first
These principles translate to a saying we have and live by at the Schwendeman Agency, which is that we truly sit on the same side of the table as our clients. We work for our clients and represent our clients’ interests. The key is trust and we work hard to earn it.
We start by helping individuals and businesses define their needs. Our investment in extensive research and evaluation on how best to fulfill those needs is unique in the industry. And, we propose innovative solutions through best-in-class carriers.
The Schwendeman Agency is full service including business insurance, employee benefit programs, financial services, and all areas of personal insurance planning, such as homeowners, auto, life and health insurance. But, our most important offer is a relationship you can trust and depend on to meet your needs.

The Schwendeman Agency has a rich history and today is a third generation family business. The agency was started in 1929 by the current owners’ grandfather, Andrew Schwendeman, who began selling insurance part time out of a general store. Thomas (Andrew’s son) and Norma Schwendeman (parents of the current owners, Larry and Mark Schwendeman) opened an office of the Schwendeman Agency in 1940. Since then, the agency has grown to 30 employees and has locations in Marietta, OH; St. Clairsville, OH; and Parkersburg, WV.
Our mission is simple and focused. It is a core value that drives our behavior every day. It is to continuously exceed our clients’ expectations.
