Ron Spindel 2015

Ronald F. Spindel, a native of Portsmouth, VA, began his career with the Frieden Agency, a John Hancock Company in 1975.  He opened the Spindel Agency, under the Frieden Agency umbrella 15 years ago.   He is the husband of the very beautiful and loving Linda Spindel (she helped write this), the proud father of Kevin and his wife Jennifer, and the doting grandfather of Jordan and Jacob Spindel of Atlanta.

Ron has been in the insurance business since 1975, is a member of the Million Dollar Round Table and was one of the first brokers to receive the designation of Professional Financial Planner from the Old Dominion School of Business.

Ron’s philosophy has always been to pay it forward.  Many people helped him along the way and he is always willing to help others considering a career in the insurance business.  Success comes from a  clear vision, the ability to find solutions, a willingness to work hard, and most of all, the  establishment of lasting relationships.
