A HISTORY ROOTED IN INSURANCE EXCELLENCE
Though officially incorporated in 1985, Rupp-Fiore Insurance actually began their journey toward becoming one of the most trusted Pittsburgh insurance agencies years earlier. After decades of management experience throughout the insurance industry, founders Bob Rupp and Joe Fiore individually recognized in the early eighties a need for community-minded insurance agencies in their respective Western Pennsylvania communities.
Utilizing their expertise gained from the insurance carrier side of the industry, Bob and Joe set out to create an outlet for individuals and businesses in the Pittsburgh area to find quality, trustworthy help with their insurance by offering free insurance quotes, claims assistance, policy service, and more year-after-year. By the time their two insurance agencies merged in 1985, their clients had already come to expect nothing but the best from Bob, Joe, and their staff of helpful insurance experts.
In the three decades since, Rupp-Fiore Insurance has expanded across the Western Pennsylvania landscape with a growing list of additional insurance offices, including various remote affiliate insurance agents working from their own private offices all around Pittsburgh. In recent years, Bob’s son, Chris Rupp, and Joe’s daughter, Candice Fiore Schaffer, have become an increasingly integral part of continuing the success and dependability our client base has always expected from us while carrying the insurance agency’s legacy of excellence into the 21st century.
