Mel Foster Insurance Today

Mel Foster Insurance is a locally owned and operated full-service Independent Insurance Agency that has served the Quad Cities and surrounding area insurance needs since 1932.  Today, under the leadership of Marc Engels, Mel Foster Insurance has 38 dedicated employees organized to specialize in their respective divisions, including construction and transportation as well as general business and personal insurance.  Our team is comprised of producers in commercial property casualty, employee benefits, qualified retirement planning, and individual property casualty exposures.  Mel Foster Insurance is located in Davenport, IA and represents over 25 insurance companies, and is licensed to do business in over 38 states.

Why do business with Mel Foster Insurance?

Unlike a captive or direct insurance company who only offers their own proprietary products, our agency is 100% independent of any one company. Many insurance consumers don’t fully understand just how important that really is.

When it comes to something as important as insurance, it’s imperative that you work with an agency who has an in-depth knowledge of multiple insurance products, companies, and guidelines — not just one.

At the end of the day, what separates one agent from another, is their ability to proactively service their policyholders, and their knowledge of the insurance industry, products, and different situations that may present themselves to their clients.
