Nationwide Recognizes 
Consultative Insurance Group, 
Ron and Kindra Smith

Community service and outstanding agency performance

result in company award


Middleburg Heights, OH Helping community members protect their future is more than just a job for Ron and Kindra Smith -- it’s a way of life. For a combination of 54 years as Nationwide agents, Ron and Kindra Smith have dedicated their careers to counseling customers on their insurance and financial services needs, providing them with security for the people and things they value most – their loved ones, their homes and their businesses.

Through Consultative Cares!, the philanthropic side of their agency, Ron and Kindra dedicate much of their time to a number of organizations around the community including, Vested Interest in K9s, the Badge Program, Olmsted Spirit 5k, and Walk Like MADD.  Their involvement with these organizations earned them the Nationwide Midwest Regional Community Service Award in 2014.

As a result of our agency being the Regional Service Award Winner, our selected charity, Vested Interest in K9s received a $500 donation from Nationwide Insurance.  Through Consultative Cares!, Consultative Insurance Group matched this donation, resulting in a bullet and stab proof protective body vest for K9 Rico, a member of the Cleveland Metroparks Rangers. 

Ron and Kindra Smith
 will also be featured on a Wall of Fame in the Nationwide corporate office in Columbus, OH. 

The Smith's dedication has also led to continued sales success.  Last year, many customers trusted Consultative Insurance Group with their protection needs, leading to the following sales awards:

The Presidents Award, the company's highest award, is for attaining excellence in sales of automobile, homeowners, and other property, and casualty insurance products, as well as life insurance and other financial services products. 

The Champion Award is for outstanding achievement in sales of multiple products, including automobile and homeowners products, as well as life insurance and other financial services products. 

Ron and Kindra consistently drive for results and are among Nationwide's most elite performers in the country. They put the customer at the heart of their business, challenging themselves and those around them to deliver the On Your Side® personalized customer experience each and every day.

Consultative Insurance Group has five office locations, with the newest location in the Olmsted Falls area, located at 25630 Bagley Rd. Join us August 7th - 8th for our Grand Opening! 

Our agency has a staff of four part-time and twenty-four full-time employees serving over 10,000 customers. This is the first year they have qualified for the company’s annual community service award.
