About Us

Ryan Tyson PresidentRyan Tyson is a third generation owner of Reinhardt's Agency, Inc. It was Ryan's grandfather, the late Cecil Tyson, who broke into the business by selling his interest in seven local Isaly Dairy stores. Cecil used the proceeds to buy Reinhardt's in 1955 from George F. Reinhardt  Cecil Tyson

Before joining his father in 1998, Ryan earned a degree in Marketing from John Carroll University, University Heights, Ohio in 1996. Upon graduation, Ryan gained first-hand knowledge in the insurance industry as a field marketing representative for Westfield Insurance Co. In addition, he gained valuable experience serving as a sales representative in 1997 for Affordable Interior Systems, a multi-million dollar furniture manufacturing company located in Hudson, Massachusetts.

Ryan and Michael TysonReinhardt's, initially started as an insurance agency but later branched out into selling real estate in the mid-1950s. Like the area it serves, the agency has undergone changes since the family began working at the business.

Since partnering together with Michael in 1998, Ryan and his father have seen the agency grow and change significantly. In 2002, the Agency secured a contract with Erie Insurance, adding a key additional market to the already strong alignment of insurance carriers represented by the agency.

Following In 2005, Reinhardt's made the first of four key acquisitions, acquiring Jovenall Insurance, Hermitage, Pa a well-respected agency in the area. A second acquisition was made in 2007, adding Lawyer Insurance with a second location in Hermitage. After running his own agency for 25 years, Dan Lawyer and his staff joined Reinhardt's. Dan has served the agency as an Executive Producer and key management advisor in agency operations. Also changing in the Agency in 2007 was the retirement of Michael Tyson, after serving the business for over 40 years. Michael remains on the Board of Directors and continues to serve the agency as a key advisor. Another change of 2007 included the sale of the Real Estate division to ERA Johnson Real Estate, Hermitage, PA. The sale of the Real Estate Division provided an opportunity for the Agency to continue its main focus to grow and expand the insurance operations.

In 2009 Reinhardt's acquired the Ronald Leipheimer Insurance Agency. Then in 2012, the Jim Allen Agency was purchased along with his building and property at 3775 E State Street in Hermitage PA. As of 2014, this location is now the home of our newly constructed office combining all departments. On July 29, 2014 Ryan along with family and staff dedicated the building with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.
