About Premier Group Insurance

Steve Ehler

Welcome to my Agency! I am Steve Ehler, Owner here at Premier Group Insurance. Below is a little about myself and the other team members and a little about how we work form a high level overview. We welcome to opportunity to earn your business, feel free to reach out to us or anyone directly!

Steve Ehler

Steve Ehler

Owner/Agency Principal


Growing up right here in Lakewood, Colorado, I was the first of my siblings to enter college. Graduating with an Economics degree from the University of Colorado I found myself wondering like many; how was I going to use my degree? I came across a district manager in my job search who was willing to give me a chance at my young age (at the time) with one of the captive (only representing one carrier) insurance companies. In 2005, my path in insurance was created. Hitting many records, every goal and superseding expectations I found myself wanting more, and more importantly finding myself needing more opportunity to better serve my client base. In 2008, I became an independent agency owner, representing over 25 carriers, and finding the exact niche to satisfy growing a young business and keeping the best options for all of my clientele.

When you love what you do, it's not a job anymore. However, when I am not at the office enjoying what I do, I like to mix in some travel locally and abroad, operating or playing with anything that has an engine (cars, motorcycles, atvs, boats), and I am always intrigued by historical relics/items or history in general and playing a sunny day round of golf with friends.

Surviving the '08 market crash along with both physically and economically surviving COVID 19, has not only strengthened my resolve, but also provided clients peace of mind that my agency is here to stay, we are stable, and ready for you and whatever situation you may need assistance with. Please give us a call, we are real, live and here to assist.

She likes to travel with all the comforts and conveniences and gardening, and yes she won't let you forget about what she has grown in her garden this year (haha). Samantha's passion is people. This is what has had her in management and sales from the ripe young age of 18. Samantha has been in insurance now since 2017, each year expanding her horizons. She breeds excitement into the staff and also our clientele.
