The Moses Insurance Group was founded by Charles "Herky" Moses in 1955. Herky was always a huge community service advocate. He joined the US Marines during WWII, served as a volunteer firefighter, coach and mentor to our community youth, served as councilman of the Town of Amherst where he was an advocate for senior citizens and youth programs and recreation. He was an active member of several service organizations such as Kiwanis, Knights of Columbus, Chamber of Commerce, Boy Scouts of America, George Lamm Post, VFW just to name only a few. Now his children are following in his foot steps.
Our current agency owners are members of, or volunteers with: Independent Insurance Agents Association, Trusted Choice Agents, Amherst Chamber of Commerce, Williamsville Business Association, WNY Food Shuttle, Amherst Lions Club, Amherst Senior Citizens Foundation, several committees at St. Leo the Great, St. Gregory the Great churches, Sacred Heart Academy High School, American Heart Association Walk-a-thon, Cancer Society Diamond Ball, Boy Scouts of America Troop 431.
In 1960 Herky Moses & fellow insurance agent Neil Frank together purchase the Tatu Agency at 5475 Main Street, Williamsville, NY and became the Tatu, Frank & Moses Agency. In the 80's Neil Frank sold his share of the business to another agency (Naylon) and we became the Charles W. Moses Agency. Over the years we have purchased many small agencies and merged them into the Moses Group: The Eugene O'Neill Agency & Helen Zapfel Agency (1970's), the Jack Purcell Agency, Richard Brown Agency & Milt Kader Agency (1980's). In 1988 we incorporated as Moses Group Inc. Peter Shanley Agency & the Tavano-Bill O'Farrell Agency were added in the 1990Hs, Esther Everett Kratzer Agency (02), Cochrane, Flynn & LoTempio Agency (04), and Kusch & Koehler Agency (06).
In 1977 Herky's son Robert Moses, CIC (President) joined the firm and in 1979 his son Ken Moses (Vice President) joined the firm followed by his son Douglas in 1984 who now works in Florida as a computer network specialist. In 1988 Herky's daughter Carole Holler joined the group & serves as the bookkeeper and HR department and son Charles Jr. worked part-time as a sales producer. Ken & Bob have four children between them. We will see what the future brings.
As you can see, we are still a growing family owned and operated insurance agency. We are very active in the Amherst and WNY community. We specialize in writing personal auto, home & life insurance as-well-as small to medium business insurance. We have a program set up to write volunteer fire companies, long term care, disability, group insurance & employee benefits. We can place almost any kind of business insurance or personal insurance. Our firm now has 11 hard working employees that care about our clients and strive to maintain the family friendly personal touch we have always had.
We are also a member of a national network of agencies, SIAA (04), which opened the door for us to many new insurance carriers and products for our customers.
Our job is to protect your stuff!

Moses Group Inc, President
