Bob Bartlett founded Bartlett Insurance Agency in Oswego in 1949. Susan Bartlett, the founder’s daughter-in-law, has operated the business “for years,” and just recently announced her retirement, OVIA said in the news release. She is now working through the end of the year to assist on the transition.

“We greatly appreciate the trust and commitment that Susan has shown our agency, and wish her only the best in her retirement,” Harrington said in the news release.

OVIA offers business and personal insurance, including property, liability, automobile, health, and recreational products.

OVIA resulted from the 1997 merger of two “longstanding,” local insurance agencies that operated since the late 1800s. Dowd & Harrington, Inc. and Streeter & VanSanford, Inc. merged to form OVIA.

The firm currently operates six offices in Oswego, Onondaga and Jefferson counties, with locations in Oswego, Fulton, Phoenix, Brewerton, Mexico, and Clayton. The offices service more than 10,000 clients.
