About Hatcher Insurance, Inc.
The Hatcher Family - Serving Orlando for More Than 75 Years
Our slogan represents our agency's deep, continuing commitment to both the insurance agency business in Greater Orlando as well as a devotion to the community we call home.
Founded on September 16, 2002, Hatcher Insurance, Inc. specializes in commercial insurance for small to medium-sized businesses and personal lines coverages for clients throughout Florida. As an independent agency, Hatcher Insurance represents many of the nation's most prestigious and respected insurance companies, giving clients a broad base of product availability needed for the most competitive and comprehensive policies. Based in College Park near downtown Orlando, the independent agency provides the type of personalized service where relationships are highly honored.
Mike Hatcher, President, is a third generation Orlandoan and heir of a family whose history revolves around the insurance industry. The roots of Hatcher Insurance date back to 1942 with the founding of J. Rolfe Davis Insurance, still today the basis of one of the south's largest and most respected independent insurance agencies. It was founded by Mike's maternal grandfather, former Orlando Mayor J. Rolfe Davis. After a lifetime around the agency, and 21 years as a professional agent working for his grandfather and then his father, Marion Hatcher, Mike realized a lifelong dream by starting his own agency in 2002 during a buyout phase of the J. Rolfe Davis Insurance agency history.
Today, Hatcher Insurance thrives with clients throughout Florida serviced by a team of highly experienced Account Managers and the latest in agency management technology. The staff is committed to ongoing continuing education in order to provide clients with the most effective insurance programs to suit their business and personal needs.
Further, the agency is committed to doing its part as a contributing corporate member of the Orlando community. Like his family predecessors, Mike believes in doing his part personally and professionally to strengthen the community fabric that has made Orlando the kind of place where he was proud to raise his family. Members of the staff devote volunteer time to a variety of local charitable organizations and Hatcher Insurance supports a number of non-profit entities in which the staff is involved.
Serving Orlando through excellence in insurance and community pride for 75+ years manifests itself daily as a privilege and honor at Hatcher Insurance, Inc.
