About Us

The History of Our Company

The Herzak Agency was founded in 1954 by the late Michael Herzak Jr., in Cleveland, Ohio. This agency first represented the Motorists Insurance Group headquartered in Columbus, Ohio. Ultimately, the agency became Insurance Systems Agency, Inc. in 1994.

Insurance Systems then acquired The Beardsley Agency in January of 1991. The Beardsley Agency, in Warren, Ohio, was founded in 1935. This agency was a charter agency for what is now known as Grange Insurance Companies in Columbus, Ohio. The Beardsley Agency grew to be one of the largest agencies within Grange Insurance Companies.

In 2008, the agency’s name was changed to Insurance Systems Group, Inc. to more appropriately convey Insurance Systems growing size and expanding operations and affiliations. Shortly thereafter, DC Insurance Systems, LLC was created with the purchase of DC Insurance Agency in Parma, OH. With the acquisition of the Beardsley Agency and the creation of DC Insurance Systems, Insurance Systems Group has become one of the largest independent agencies in northeast Ohio, and remains one to this day.

As an independent agency, we represent some of the finest insurance companies around, both regional and national. We have the ability to find a qualified program at an affordable price from many of our carriers, to suit the needs of the client.

Our scope of operations includes commercial and personal insurance, as well as life, benefits, bonds, and financial services. Many of our clients need a multitude of services, which Insurance Systems can provide for them.

Our commitment is to share our vision with our clients and assist them in the development, protection, and achievement of their own, unique visions for tomorrow.
