NEW BUFFALO INSURANCE AGENCY IN THE NEWS
New Buffalo Insurance Agency, Inc. is an insurance agency and brokerage serving Buffalo and Western New York’s commercial and personal insurance needs. Douglas Benz graduated from the University at Buffalo and spent eight years working as a photojournalist on the local and national level, including the New York Times, the Associated Press, USA Today and Reuters.
During that time, he also served numerous charitable and civic causes, including as president of his alma mater Canisius High School’s Alumni Board of Governors, coordinating alumni outreach and the school’s popular Downtowners speaker series.
The demands of a career in media gave way to the demands of being a husband and father to a growing family (and best friend to their faithful dog, Bessie). A career in property and casualty insurance was the perfect fit and it brought with it a new adventure. In 2014 the Benz family moved to Naples, Fla. to further Doug’s career.
