Thank you for the outpouring of support concerning the passing of Market Finders’ founder, Jim Ryan.  Your kind words and expressions of sympathy have meant more than you know.

Please rest assured that succession plans have already been in place since 2015, when Mr. Ryan transferred the direction of the company to current President/CEO Joe Miller.  Market Finders will continue as an independent wholesaler and employee stock ownership company.  Though we grieve the loss of Mr. Ryan, our agents and carriers will not notice any difference in our relationships.


We’re excited about having multiple carriers that offer coverage to Contractors… We have many markets for General Liability, Professional Liability, Employee Benefits Liability, and even Contractor’s Pollution. When looking for the best deals for your clients, be sure to give us a shot at your Restoration Contractors, Remodeling Contractors, Roofers, Tree Trimmers, Fence Installers, Window Cleaners, and Painters! We are highly competitive on these risks.


It’s that time of year… when melting snow and spring rains cause LOTS of flooding. Remember there can be up to a 30-day waiting period for flood insurance to take effect, so be sure to sign those homeowners and businesses up now! Our Flood Underwriter, Dorothy Childress, has been writing Flood policies with Market Finders for over 30 years. We invite you to take advantage of her experience. Let Market Finders take care of all the hard work! Dorothy can be reached at (800)626-5660 ext. 1124 or


Market Finders has free tickets for our agents and their staff to Churchill Downs’ Spring Meet. While all of the weekend dates have already been given away, we do have some weekday tickets left.   Six tickets are available for our third-floor clubhouse box near the finish line.  Races start at 12:45 p.m.  We also have tickets to the Bats baseball games. Again, the weekend games are already gone, but most weekday games start at 7:00 p.m.  Let us know if you could use tickets for one of these games! Please send your request to


Whether it is inspections, transit pollution, or property damage, Market Finders has your pesky Pest Control solutions in the bag! In addition to General and Incidental Professional Liability, we can cover equipment breakdown – or provide an equipment / tool floater. Call Professional Lines Underwriter Gerri Warner to help get rid of those bats in the belfry (and other pests!).   ext. 1157


Market Finders is pleased to offer two free Flood Seminars where agents earn 3 CE credits for their participation. Join us April 17 in Dayton, OH or April 18 in Louisville, KY. While there is no cost for the seminars, there is limited availability due to room size. Register on our website by clicking the gold Event Registration button. (Or you may e-mail to register.)


You can’t control Mother Nature, so what happens when a major winter storm hits at the same time as your event? What if the main act of your scheduled concert gets snowed in and can’t make it? Event Cancellation Insurance covers these scenarios… in addition to outbreaks of communicable disease (including bird flu and swine flu), labor strikes, and even damage to the hall you’ve rented caused by fires, floods or power outages! Call our Commercial Lines underwriters for answers to your questions about Event/Weather Cancellation coverage. 800-626-5660.


Just because the New Year’s Eve and Christmas parties are over, doesn’t mean it still isn’t PARTY Season! We offer coverage for Mardi Gras Parties — and even those St. Patrick’s Day Parades. Give one of our Commercial Underwriters a call today. 800-626-5660
