• History

  • Mr. Maurice. J. Schuetz, Sr. began M. J. Schuetz Agency, Inc. in 1943, in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana.  Having been a surety bond underwriter for U S F & G for several years, he was used to working with construction companies, and decided to focus his agency on the construction industry.   For fourteen years, the agency had one employee (Mr. M. J. Schuetz, Sr.) and one part-time employee (Mrs. M. J. Schuetz, Sr.).  This changed in 1957, when their son, Maury (Jr.) joined the agency, and again in 1960, when their son-in-law, DV Pace joined the agency.

 

 

  • On January 1, 2012, the agency was purchased by long-term employees Vickie L. Wolcott and David A. Linthicum.   At that time, the name was changed to M. J. Schuetz Insurance Services, Inc. Today, M.J. Schuetz employs 28 individuals with a combined 200 years of insurance experience.

Location

Downtown Indianapolis has been the home of M.J. Schuetz since 1943, originally located in the Knights of Pythias Flatiron building at the corner of Pennsylvania Street and Massachusetts Avenue (where the Regions Building now stands). By 1969, M.J. Schuetz had relocated to the Fidelity Building (now Bank One), where employees shared cramped quarters as the agency continued to grow. Finally, in 1975, M.J. Schuetz found its current home at Circle Tower Building, located right on Monument Circle. While the size of the office has expanded and contracted over the years, today M.J. Schuetz occupies most of the fifth floor as the agency continues to grow.
