Gerhart, Hartman & Ritner Announces Staff Changes

            Gerhart, Hartman & Ritner, Ltd., a long-established insurance firm with offices in Boyertown and Red Hill, has made major announcements regarding three of their professional staff members.

            The news was announced by GHR owners/partners Robert Ritner, Mark Fluharty and Don Hausknecht.

            James "Jim" Davidheiser has joined the company as a Senior Products Advisor and Marketing Director. Davidheiser, a Colebrookdale Township resident, is well-known throughout the region via his newspaper affiliations and his community involvements.

            In his new Senior Products Advisor position, he will be specializing in Medicare Supplement and Prescription Drug plans, Dental-Vision-Hearing insurance options, Final Expense Life Insurance and related segments.

            On the Marketing side, Davidheiser will be taking steps to enhance the branding and visibility of the Gerhart, Hartman & Ritner firm, a community-minded company that actually began in 1910.

            One example: thousands of persons attending the September 21-22-23 Oley Valley Community Fair will have an opportunity to visit with GHR associates, as the GHR booth will be a new venue inside the Oley Fair's popular Commercial Building.

            Davidheiser: "Our goal is to reach out to folks throughout the greater Tri-County region. Our Personal Lines, Health Insurance, Business Insurance and Life & Financial Services divisions are staffed with trained and personable associates who are focused on 'what is best' for our friends and neighbors.

             "You will be seeing an increased presence of Gerhart, Hartman & Ritner throughout our communities. And we welcome ongoing comments and inquiries regarding our extensive insurance offerings."

            On the community/civic front, Davidheiser is an active volunteer with the J-Walkers team, a segment of the Relay for Life of Boyertown/American Cancer Society.

             He also serves on the boards of Helping Hands and the Berks-Mont Business Association. His past board affiliations have included the Oley Valley Business Association, Boyertown Salvation Army, TriCounty Area Chamber of Commerce, Friends of the Daniel Boone Homestead, Morgantown Area Business Association and Boyertown Area YMCA.

            Deb Favinger, a GHR Commercial Lines Agent, recently received the designation of a CISR Elite agent. (The Society of Certified Insurance Representatives authorizes the CISR Elite status after the completion of nine separate segments of insurance training.)

            A Boyertown area resident, Favinger has been affiliated with Gerhart, Hartman & Ritner for 27 years.

            Courtney Winchester, a GHR Personal Lines Agent, recently completed five separate insurance courses to earn her CISR designation. Winchester resides in the Bechtelsville area, and she first joined the GHR firm in 2015.

            GHR owner/partner Mark Fluharty commented, "Both Deb Favinger and Courtney Winchester represent so much of what our GHR team stands for. Their commitment to ongoing training and improvement allows for us to better serve our current and prospective clients throughout the tri-county area and beyond."

            Gerhart, Hartman & Ritner, Ltd. Is headquartered at 138 South Reading Avenue, Boyertown. The firm maintains branch offices at 262 Main Street, Red Hill. Davidheiser can be reached at 484-706-3262 or via email at
