About DSP

DSP Insurance Services, Inc. was founded in 1981 by partners Bob Schutz and Steve Pohl. At the time, they had five employees and a modest book of business.  Having both begun their careers insuring contractors, they began by insuring what they knew best – the construction and trades industries.

With a lot of hard work and a reputation of honesty and integrity, DSP quickly grew to become one of the foremost insurance agencies in the Chicagoland area.   Over the next three decades the agency grew to the current team of over 45 insurance and risk management experts.

During these years of growth, DSP has also diversified from its construction roots by attracting and retaining talented brokers and staff with backgrounds in a wide variety of industries including manufacturers of anything from car parts to production machinery, distributors, printers, food processors, financial institutions, professional organizations and more.

Though we have grown more than 10-fold in the number of clients and revenues, DSP still maintains its focus on technical expertise, commitment to service and, foremost, integrity.
