Brad Lawton

President, Agent, CIC

Lawton Insurance Agency Inc.

Brad Lawton is the president and principal agent of the Lawton Insurance Agency Inc., a property and casualty insurance agency, primarily representing the Erie Insurance Group in Lewisburg. Lawton has been in the insurance field for 32 years, the past 27 as the owner of the agency. The agency has grown from a two-person office to 11 employees and two offices with an office in Mifflinburg.

Brad graduated from Shippensburg University and earned his degree in business administration. He started his insurance career as field claims representative and sent five years with a large national carrier.

He and his wife have four children and are active in the community. Brad is the immediate past chairman of the board of the Central PA Chamber of Commerce where he remains a board member. He is also a board member of the Green Dragon Foundation and the Union County Hospital Authority and is active in coaching various youth sports.

Lawton believes that a community can realize its potential by supporting local business, expanding and integrating technology and treating people from all walks of life fairly.

Looking back, Lawton said that he could have had a greater sense of urgency when it came to seizing opportunities.

“I know I’ve made several mistakes over the years, but one observation and mistake that I’ve made is having an opportunity present itself and not acting upon it. I’ve admired people with a sense of urgency and have been developing that trait,” he said.
