In the mid-50’s, Alan’s son, Richard, joined the agency. Richard (Dick) and his wife Winnie ran the agency until 1996. Sloan was then sold to Larry Mawhorr and Marsha Young, and under their management, Sloan expanded to have office locations in West Liberty & North Lewisburg in addition to Bellefontaine. In 2016 Sloan Insurance merged with another locally respected insurance agency, Nu Insurance Center, which was owned by Kathy & Chuck Yule and previously by Kathy’s father, Richard Smith, a lifelong resident of Bellefontaine. The agency name then becoming, Sloan Insurance Center. Also, in 2016, Sloan Insurance Center joined the Ohio Insurance & Financial Services family in order to offer additional products and services.

When asked why they chose to do business in Logan County, Sloan responded, “Fortunately, the location of Logan County was selected for us by our predecessors, and they could not have made a better choice. Logan County is a thriving community and we couldn’t ask for a more welcoming place to be originally established and currently do business in.” Sloan Insurance Center wants the community to know that they are more than just an insurance agency; they are your Insurance Family who will be there on your worst days and help wherever they can. We’re glad they have been with us for 60 years as Chamber members. They believe it’s simply good practice to be active supporters of your local community, especially the Chamber of Commerce.
