Hodgdon Insurance and Financial Services, LLC has opened in the Wheeler Professional Park in West Lebanon, NH.
Bryan Hodgdon is the insurance agent; he is a subcontractor for Horace Mann Insurance. The company offers automobile, property, life insurance, and retirement planning products to everyone, but its target market is educators.
“Horace Mann Insurance is the largest national, multi-line insurance company to focus on the insurance and planning needs of the educational community,” said Hodgdon. The company was founded in 1945. Hodgdon is also a third-party vendor for other insurance companies such as Progressive, Foremost Insurance Group, Lincoln Financial, and Americus Insurance.
Horace Mann Insurance considers itself a working partner with schools, with various programs that help schools and teachers. Hodgdon is meeting with area schools and getting to know their needs. “We run seminars for teachers about the different retirement systems and also how to plan for their financial futures.”
The company bases its philosophy on those of Horace Mann, who was born in Massachusetts in 1796. Mann, called the “Father of American Education,” was largely self-educated and became a lawyer, and then a politician at the state and national levels. He felt that a free public education was the birthright of every American child, and established the first public normal school in the U.S.in Lexington, MA, along with many other schools and teacher-training institutions in Massachusetts.
Hodgdon found his office space with the help of Bruce Waters, senior broker with Lang McLaughry Commercial in West Lebanon, NH. Waters represented the landlord in the transaction.
