Brad Rupp - Owner/President
In 1985, during my junior year at college, I started my career in insurance. After my graduation from Taylor University in 1986, I initially worked selling only life insurance. By 1989, when Lauber Group was formed, I had diversified into all lines of insurance. In 1996, I became the sole proprietor of Lauber Group, Inc. I am very proud of the staff that we have assembled & enjoy the work environment that has been established. My wife Julia & I live in Archbold. My family & I enjoy church & school activities, boating, golfing, traveling, relaxing at our lake cottage & spending time with family & 3 grandchildren.
