Meet Our Team

Ed Dressel
Ed DresselFounding Partner
Many golfers can play for a lifetime and never make a hole-in-one. Ed Dressel has had the thrill of shooting three! (Not all in the same round.) Ed is the founding partner of the agency and has been in the insurance business most of his working life. Born in Columbus, he and his wife Lois have raised two daughters and have three grandsons. After earning his BBA from Miami University and an MBA from The Ohio State University, Ed also served in the U.S. Navy for eight years. He is active in his church, is a life member of Sertoma International, and is an active member of Scottish Rite, York Rite and Shrine. He is a twice Past-Master of the Goodale Lodge. Along with the quest for his fourth hole-in-one, Dressel also enjoys gardening and model railroading.
Jim Evans

He is very much the family man — married to his wife Lynne for 27 years and father to three boys (that’s a handful) ages 21, 18 and 15 years old. All three are athletes (tennis primarily) and two are also active in theatrical productions at school. Jim and his wife can be found cheering them all on the sidelines or in the audience.

What Our Clients Say About Us

I have been insured by Dressel and Evans for years.  I have never experienced a business with as much old school integrity as this company.  Jim has called me out of the blue to inform me of ways that I could get better insurance and lower premiums–most businesses would simply absorb the difference as profit.  Any time I have had a question, Jim has returned my call–usually within minutes–not hours or days.  I have referred many people to Dressel and Evans because I want them to have the same great experience I have had.  Also, for selfish reasons, I want Dressel and Evans to be successful so that I always have a great insurance company that I can depend on.

Brian Kohler

I made the switch to Dressel Evans four years ago and couldn’t be happier.  I run two separate businesses in contracting and property management,  so I watch my expenses carefully.

For my property management business, Jim cut my business insurance policy premiums by half even while I increased the number of units. For both my business and personal coverage, Jim always makes the extra effort to make the claims and payment process as smooth and hassle-free as possible.
