Hardy Aviation Insurance focuses on personal service

Hardy Aviation Insurance is pleased to announce a broader selection of services in property and casualty to include life insurance and expanded work comp/ employers liability capabilities.

To facilitate this new line of business we have hired Kim Manring, a specialist in these areas, adding personal lines, to include homes and auto, rv’s, boats, etc.  In addition, we have expanded our list of commercial markets to include all commercial lines, BOP’s, commercial operations, farm operations, retail, and much more.  We are now capable of writing Life insurance all be it not for pilots yet, however we’re working to include that market in the near future.  Hardy has always written worker’s compensation and employer’s liability for aerial application however, with our new contracts we can now expand our scope to other areas.

Aviation has always been and will continue to be our focus, but expanding our services allows Hardy to not only compete in the overall insurance market place, but it will allow the same one on one personal services to our clients they have come to expect and appreciate.  Randy Hardy, company founder said “our goals are to become a one stop shop servicing ALL our client’s insurance needs”. As we continue to grow our company, it’s capabilities and markets, adding Kim to our current staff of knowledgeable agents will allow us to accomplish these goals.

Retirement for Rita Ethridge

One of the best days in our agency’s history was February 8, 1999 when Rita agreed to continue her career in ag insurance at Hardy. Rita has decided to retire at the end of 2016 and move into the next stage of her life.

Rita came to us with a rich history in aviation insurance and with her knowledge and experience has devoted herself to providing her clients and friends with the kind of service she herself would expect. She has always had the ability to “make things happen” and her clients could always feel confident that they were being well taken care of under her watchful eye.

As an agency owner, I could not have asked for a more devoted and loyal person to work with and she will be truly missed on a daily basis. But it’s time for her to enjoy her much deserved retirement and we couldn’t be happier for her and her family.

As the year progresses, you will see more activity and interaction with Mary Humphrey who will be stepping in to manage Rita’s accounts.

Rita will be missed and as an agent she will be hard to follow; but as her friend, I wish her the best…..go relax and enjoy life.
