Principal agents Tom and Bev Goff (husband and wife) have successfully formed the perfect insurance partnership. Northern Insurance, an ERIE agency, was established in 2006 in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Erie Insurance sells auto, home, life and business insurance through our network of independent agents in 12 states and the District of Columbia. Northern Insurance offers personal and commercial lines as well as life insurance.
Tom Goff has more than eight years of insurance experience. Tom was also a full-time professor at Indiana Institute of Technology from 2003-2007 and is a former adjunct professor of the institute.
Tom says: “Significant business background in multiple disciplines, experience as a business professor and pursuit of insurance knowledge, set us apart from the typical insurance agency. We want to assure you have the best coverage at the best value.”
Tom has gained insurance knowledge through earning designations such as the CIC (Certified Insurance Counselor), CRM (Certified Risk Managers) and the CPCU (Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter).
Prior to joining Tom in the insurance agency, Bev’s background was in human resources and staffing. She earned her CISR designation and often finds herself helping customers with job searches and resume writing.
Together, Tom and Bev Goff use their knowledge and experience to offer clients coverage options and evaluate several scenarios. Both Tom and Bev explain all the options and coverages to their customers in a way that's easy to understand. In fact, every member of the staff at Northern Insurance is a college graduate and either has an additional insurance certification or is working toward earning one. Together, they serve over 1,000 clients.
“Our mantra is to explain everything fully and aid our clients in making informed decisions to maximize the value for their insurance dollar,” Bev says.
