We at Dodge Insurance are about meeting and surpassing the
standard for an insurance brokerage.
Since we are a locally owned and operated business, we pride ourselves in having a personal relationship with our clients.
Our brokers’ take great care to provide excellent service and to represent our clients in difficult matters such as claim issues, the application process and billing problems.
Many large insurance companies do not offer the face to face experience, and will instead let the client call a customer service number to fix issues on their own time.
At Dodge Insurance, you will always speak to a local, licensed broker who will be able to advise you specifically on how best to approach your insurance needs.
Kent began working in insurance in 1983, after graduating from Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia.
Kent’s first foray into the world of insurance was employment by Northwestern Mutual, and then Humana. He is extremely knowledgeable about all types of insurance, particularly health insurance, as he has seen many changes in the industry in the length of time he has been working in it.
He and his wife Jane moved to Blacksburg in 1989, where they raised three children. Kent and Jane are active in working with students at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, particularly with members of Virginia Tech’s Corps of Cadets.
When not working with insurance, Kent enjoys playing hockey in a local league based in Roanoke, and spending time in Camden, Maine, his ‘other’ home.
Stephen, Kent’s son, has been working for Dodge Insurance since 2011 – and has been a licensed insurance broker since early 2012.
His unique experience with pre-and-post Affordable Care Act insurance has allowed him to seamlessly explain to clients the differences and impact of the new federal law.
He graduated from Dayspring Christian Academy and attended Radford University.
When he is not in or around the office, he enjoys spending time with his dog, Maggie, and playing ice hockey.
