Starting with the Seltzer Group in 1989, Steve Stramara has dedicated 30 years of his life to learning, growing, and leading The Seltzer Group through its evolving journey in the insurance, bonding, and risk management world. When he first joined the agency he was hired to sell and service all types of personal and business insurance products. In the 1990s, recognizing a need to help the agency improve its client data management systems, Steve took on the installation, integration, and management of the agencies’ first information technology system.
In 2003, understanding that people and businesses needed more than just an insurance policy, Steve worked with Bob Seltzer and Bruce Krammes to refocus the agency toward solutions to reduce and manage risk for Seltzer clients. Steve was co-founder and President of Keystone Comp Control, a multi-state group of agencies dedicated to creating and implementing insurance, human resource, safety, compliance, and claims management strategies designed to improve client results.
In 2005, Steve worked with several key partners to start Pennsylvania’s first totally integrated risk management company: East Coast Risk Management, LLC. In 2012 Steve, again – recognizing the need – helped form and held the position of the first President and Chairman of the Board of Keystone Surety Associates, LLC, a dedicated bonding agency based in Mechanicsburg, PA.
With his forward-thinking ability and knowledgeable experience, Steve has been able to design, manage, and implement processes and procedures that would greatly aid in the success of our clients’ strategic and tactical objectives.
Focusing heavily on our outstanding Risk Management Solution programs, Steve dedicates much of his time constantly evaluating and modifying our services to ensure that they are exceeding expectations. Steve focuses on the outcome of our clients, not only through evaluation prior to partnering with them but by constantly monitoring their coverages and risk management solutions to be sure that we are offering the best services for their needs. Steve is a role model in our organization, being a true key element of molding The Seltzer Group into what it is today.
In his free time, Steve savors every moment his wife Natalie and his 3 grandchildren of his daughter Sarah and her husband Stephen. For enjoyment, Steve likes to exercise, ski, and vacation with family and friends, anywhere that offers sunshine and a beach.
