Alvin’s Army

Surging insurance powerhouse The Roehr Agency heads home, to the City of Cincinnati, where founder and owner Alvin Roehr Jr. continues construction of the largest local, independent insurance agency in The Queen City 

ON THE FRONT BURNER: Cincy agency eyes growth, expansion, and local domination.

It started with a Roehr. Followed by a Jones, Manning, McCauley, Perry, then Seiter.

Five years later, Roehr Agency poised for relentless growth.

[CINCINNATI, Ohio ~ OAKLEY ~ September 27, 2016] “The House That Alvin Built” – aka The Roehr Agency – is indeed constructed upon a foundation comprised of one Alvin Roehr Jr. Today, it opens anew.

The pillars underpinning this local, independent insurance powerhouse, however, are provided by five co-workers of Roehr, the former president of Schiff Kreidler-Shell (now Arthur J. Gallagher & Co., since 2012) who left one of the largest insurance companies in Greater Cincinnati almost five years ago.

These six – The Original Six of the Roehr Agency – are not your garden-variety insurancemen/women.

The Original Six are a small, feverishly dedicated, fiercely loyal coterie of longtime insurance professionals, with more than 175 years of experience between them.

Together, the growth strategy hatched by Roehr in late 2011 by the Cincinnati native and his five lieutenants – Sandy Jones, Sandi Manning, Jeff McCauley, Linda Perry and Mike Seiter – takes a fantastic leap with an expansion/relocation to Oakley.

The Roehr Agency is setting up shop at a high-profile facility at the corner of Ridge Road and Ibsen Avenue, a fast-growing Cincinnati neighborhood reaping the economic-development fruits of the new Kennedy Connector roadway system.

From Day One, our goal has been, and will always be, the same: We want to be the largest, locally-owned independent insurance agency in the Greater Cincinnati market,” Roehr said.


Alvin Roehr Jr. is Cincinnati to the bone.

Born on the West Side, raised on the East Side, a graduate of the University of Cincinnati, now a resident of Indian Hill, he’s spent practically his entire professional life in The Queen City.

Besides his passion for the insurance industry, Roehr has instilled a philanthropic voice to The Roehr Agency unlike any other in the local market.

Alvin keeps busy serving on the board of the Cincinnati Fire Museum, the American Heart Association, the UC Foundation and the Western & Southern Thanksgiving Day Race.

Early next year, Mr. Roehr and his wife Joan will celebrate the Heart Ball as the chairman/chairwoman of the event benefiting the American Heart Association  (Feb. 25, 2017).

Roehr and the original talent pack tremendous expertise regarding:

  • Insurance products of all varieties, for individual or business/corporate, non/profits;
  • Commercial and personal lines of insurance;
  • Risk Management Teams in place to proactively serve clients;
  • Insurance Company markets, and
  • Bond/Surety Services.

Walnut Court: 30 newly renovated apartments for lower-income seniors in Cincinnati.

Historic Cincinnati neighborhood of Walnut Hills continues development trajectory.

[CINCINNATI, Ohio ~ August 29, 2016] The rebirth of Cincinnati’s urban core is getting a $7.6 million long-term solution for a dire need – affordable housing for low-income seniors – at a Walnut Hills apartment complex.

The celebration of Walnut Court ( begins with the grand reopening tomorrow, with stakeholders including Episcopal Retirement Services (ERS), The Model Group, the City of Cincinnati, Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing (OCCH), the Ohio Housing Finance Agency (OHFA), Newbar Design Group, Huntington National Bank and Red Capital Group attending.

The renovations needed to bring Walnut Court up-to-code and up to Affordable Living by ERS standards – ERS is the project developer – took a little less than a year to accomplish.

Cincinnati Vice Mayor David Mann is scheduled to make remarks at tomorrow’s event at the site, 1020 Chapel St., located minutes from Downtown and just off of Gilbert Avenue.

We are pleased to bring safe, affordable, community living for seniors to Walnut Hills,” said Kathy Ison-Lind, ERS Vice President of Affordable Housing and In-Home Services.

Seniors facing financial challenges should have access to high-quality communities with services to help keep them living well and thriving.”


How popular has the project become between the partners?

OHFA saw such tremendous value in the Walnut Court project that the agency made available additional funding that permitted a more complete renovation than the original budget originally had allowed.

Affordable Living by ERS believes that older adults should live with dignity and comfort in a safe, nurturing, and stimulating environment, no matter what their financial situation.

Operating a portfolio of more than two dozen senior communities throughout Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, ERS is proud to offer affordable senior living communities that provide a variety of options and services not often found in communities for seniors with limited incomes.

Services such as transportation, social services and even light healthcare are offered so seniors can age in place as successfully as possible.

Walnut Court offers 21 one-bedroom and nine two-bedroom apartments for qualified residents who meet income requirements for age 62 or older; or 18 and older with a mobility disability.

PRIME TIME DEBUT IN JAN. 2017: Heartland Heritage Outdoors HITS THE BIG TIME

Rebranding a Boone County Barber …. and his buddy, Jimmy, from the county jail

Two NKy. natives convert passion, persistence and Kentucky pride into Heartland Heritage Outdoors, featuring new hunting show to air on Sportsman Channel

A Tale Of Bows, Arrows and Bear Archery: The Birth and Rebranding of HHO.

Stevens of Erlanger and Wilson from Union: Starting in Burlington, based in Hebron.

First season of 13 shows airs Jan. 2017 on Sportsman Channel (35M+ subs). 

[HEBRON, Kentucky – August 24, 2016] Two Northern Kentucky buddies raised with hunting in their genes have converted a passion for the sport into the opportunity of a lifetime, with a new cable TV program set for a prime-time debut in early 2017, “Heartland Heritage Outdoors.”

Heartland Heritage Outdoors (HHO) was formed in 2012 by Bryan Stevens, the barber, and Jimmy Wilson, the jailer, two locals whose lives intersected at a Boone County barber shop owned by the former. Besides its  TV show, HHO is engaged in hunting and training videos, DVDs and apparel.

By day, they’re mild-mannered business people and accomplished professionals, clipping locks and double-checking cuffs, respectively, at Bryan’s Barber Shop on Ky. 18 and the Boone County jail in downtown Burlington.

By night – or, rather, in the wee early morning hours, when the call of the hunter beckons – they become the two-man team that’s built a new franchise, and brand, taking a hard-earned crack at the highly competitive outdoors/hunting industry.

At the heart of it all is their friendship, and a sprightly tete-te. The Bryan-and-Jimmy Show, as it were.

HHO: Rebranding is Dedicated To the Art and Science of the Bow

Though hunters with guns are welcome, HHO is dedicated to the deft art of archery. Stevens was instructed by many, including former Cincinnati Olympian Darrell Pace. Growing up in the sport, he eventually elevated his game to a top 20 spot in the world. As a hunter, he remains a bow purist at heart.

Anybody can shoot a deer 300-400 yards out. With the bow, you really have to know what you’re doing, which means doing your homework,” Stevens said. “You have to know where they’re coming, where they’re going, and how to best position yourself.”

Wilson attributes the dynamic growth of the bow industry to technological advancements.

What happened was, you used to have three or four really good bow companies, but just like everything else, technology entered the equation and turned the industry on its ear,” Wilson said. “Now, there are 20 to 30 very high-quality bow companies. The technology is incredible.

It has opened archery up to anybody. Archery is a sport that doesn’t discriminate: you don’t have to be 6-foot-9 like you do in basketball, or weigh 200-300 pounds to play football. It’s available to any level of athlete. anybody who wants to take take it up, a college kid, man or woman. And women make up one of the fastest-growing segments of new fans.”

HHO thanks Supporters, Sponsors, Sportsman Channel and Fans

Sponsors have played a major role in the development of HHO. The founders extend a most gracious acknowledgement to (listed alphabetically, not by importance): Advanced Treestands, Badlands Packs, Bailey’s Car Wash, Bear Archery, Bernie Wessels of Wessels Construction and Development, Black Eagle Arrows, Cherokee Sports, Cirrus, Dead Ringer, Fedders Feed Seed, Glier’s Goetta, M&M Archery Range, Monster Meal Deer Attractants, Orion Coolers, Rubline Marketing and Consulting, Scent Crusher, The Sportsman Channel, Tactacam, Treezyn, Trophy Ridge, Vortex and ZUCUE Business Solutions.
