The Akron office, which opened in 2010, will continue to be led by Paul Catania, a resident of Hudson, who has worked at Oswald for more than 10 years.  Oswald provides property/casualty and employee benefits consulting and brokerage, along with group retirement and specialty life insurance services.  “We are committed to this community and are very grateful for the strong support from our clients and partners since opening our office five years ago, ” said Paul Catania, Vice President & Akron Branch Manager. “We love being on Main Street and are excited about Akron’s future.”

The new office is located at The United Building, 1 S. Main Street, Suite 201, Akron.
