President, Agent

Meet Craig S. Mader


Extension 20

Craig is privileged to represent Erie Insurance since 1984. The history of the Craig Mader Insurance Agency Inc. began when he incorporated the business in January 1989. The growth of the agency can be attributed to the competitive product line offered by Erie Insurance in both personal lines and commercial lines of insurance.

Craig is continually impressed by ERIE’s fairness regarding claims, billing issues, and their accessibility. The products available to clients are priced to be the competition among insurance carriers in Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia focusing on local communities of Crofton, Bowie, and Mitchellville, MD.

Craig has been in the insurance industry since January 1984. He decided to enter the insurance agency business after being mentored by an ERIE Sales Manager, Howard Miller, who did more for him than he ever realized. His prior career was with Wonder Bread/Hostess Cakes as a personnel manager and labor relations manager. He is a 1977 graduate of Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma, having been recruited there as a baseball player. While in college, he met his wife, Michele, of Bowie, Maryland.

Craig attributes the agency’s growth and retention of customers to a staff of high-caliber, honest, and talented people. They are conscientious when it comes to satisfying the needs of their customers. They most certainly have helped grow the customer base from about 800 in 1989 to over 4,200 in 2007.

Finally, the team at Craig Mader Insurance Agency is privileged to represent their customers. They’re confident that they constantly matched customers’ needs with the proper carrier and levels of coverage. They are committed to serving and responding to all of their questions and demands to the best of their ability and strive to comply with ERIE’s founding principle: “to provide policyholders with as near perfect protection, as near perfect service as is humanly possible and to do so at the lowest possible cost.” – H.O. Hirt, Founder, Erie Insurance.
