CANTON, Ohio, Feb. 14, 2024 – Cleveland-based Oswald Companies has opened a new office in Canton at Hall of Fame Village, positioning the firm closer to its clients and community partners in the region.

Oswald Companies is one of the country’s largest independent, employee-owned insurance brokerage and risk advisory firms, with deep expertise representing clients with Employee Benefits, Property & Casualty, Retirement Plan Services and Specialty Life insurance.

The office, located on the 2nd floor of the Constellation Center for Excellence, overlooks Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium. In addition to workspace for Oswald employee-owners, the office consists of a conference room and lobby designed to host client and partner gatherings.

“We have planned to open an office in Canton for quite a while to accommodate our growth in the region. Once we knew of the plan to build the Constellation Center for Excellence at Hall of Fame Village, we were excited to be part of it.” said Paul Catania, Oswald’s market leader for the region encompassing Akron, Canton, Medina and Wooster.

The glass entry to the office pays homage to the city of Canton with a frosted mural of the Hall of Fame Bridge over Interstate 77. Artwork inside the office also tips a hat to the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Oswald’s 131-year history.

The office will also be home to Taylor Oswald, a minority firm and partner of Oswald Companies.

Austin Bennett, risk advisor for Taylor Oswald said; “As a lifelong Stark County resident, I am extremely excited that Taylor Oswald will be part of the new Canton location. Our team has always had a strong commitment to community, and we now have an amazing space to serve the community and clients where I was raised.”

The Canton office brings the total number of Oswald locations up to 12, including offices in Akron and Medina. Oswald is also growing in southeast Michigan, recently announcing its acquisition of Brieden Consulting Group in Grosse Pointe, Mich. Oswald Companies is based in downtown Cleveland and plans to relocate its headquarters to the East Bank of the Flats this summer.
