Keith Roberts to lead new GEICO local office in Canton

CANTON, Ohio, Sept. 13, 2018 – Keith Roberts will lead a team of licensed GEICO agents at the company's new Canton local office directly across from the Belden Village Mall at 5112 Whipple Ave. Northwest.

"We're eager to grow GEICO's presence in northeast Ohio," Roberts said. "We look forward to building a long-term relationship with residents living in Canton and other areas around Stark County, and addressing their individual insurance needs as they change over time."

Roberts' GEICO roots run deep, as he began his career working at a GEICO local office in Morgantown, West Virginia and later became office manager of the company's Lexington, Kentucky local office.

Joining Roberts are insurance agents Megan Roberts, Adam Lozier, Ryan Syroid, John Stitt and Nathan Esposito. In addition to auto insurance policies, staff members can assist customers by arranging coverage for homeowners, renters, motorcycles, boats, RV's, umbrella and more types of insurance.

Additional savings for customers who purchase multiple policies, as well as for those who are members of special association and alumni groups may be offered. For example, alumni from Ohio University, Miami University of Ohio, Kent State University, University of Cincinnati, University of Akron, University of Toledo, Bowling Green State University and Xavier University may qualify for additional savings.

The Canton local office plans to stay active in the local community by supporting area charities through its referral program and attending events around town.
