Rio Grande Underwriters was founded by Evan C. Stineman, III in 1986. The company is the successor to the Bozarth and Breedlove Insurance Agency, which provided a standard for excellence in insurance service for 50 years. That spirit for setting the benchmark by which all other insurance agencies would be measured is the legacy Terrell Bozarth entrusted to Rio Grande Underwriters, Inc. and is the cornerstone on which Rio Grande Underwriters, Inc. was built.
In 2016, Evan Stineman made the tough decision to sell his company. He chose as his replacement a long-time client, Sam Sparks III. Sam is a third-generation farmer and always progressive in how he runs his operation. With his farming and business background Sam seemed like the perfect fit. Sam runs Rio Grande Underwriters, Inc. today and is passionate about it being a company that focuses on putting farmers and ranchers first.
