OUR HISTORY

The Beginning

Battersby & Associates

Founded in 1986 on the Westside of Indianapolis, the then company, Battersby and Associates, rapidly set and maintained high standards for sales, service, professionalism, and integrity.

 

From the beginning, stellar salesman and our current President, Bob Danielson, assisted in the rapid growth of the agency.

 

Soon after its creation, it was necessary for the agency to expand its facility and was moved to Carmel.

The agency continued to develop throughout the years and a promising young salesman, our current Vice President, Joe Azbell was added to the team in 1992.


Development

Battersby Danielson Azbell

As the new century approached, Mr. Battersby partnered with Mr. Danielson to purchase a parcel of land in a somewhat rural area of Central Indiana in the town of Westfield (then population 15,461). In 2000 our current facility was built. With this partnership, Bob became co-owner and his name was added to the business: Battersby Danielson & Associates. 

 

In 2003, Mike Michaud merged his business, Specialty Sales, with our agency and became a company principal at that time.

 

Mr. Battersby retired in December 31, 2006. Upon doing so, he sold the agency to Bob and Joe. At that time,  Battersby Danielson Azbell was formed.

 

Sadly, Brian passed away in June of 2013. His legend and legacy will always live on in our company. 


Moving forward

BDA

The industry and our agency has experienced exponential growth over the years much like the town where our business currently resides (current population last estimated at 40,000).


As our company, the industry and society has advanced, we recognized the need to strenthen our brand. We are very excited about this change. By consolidating to the owners initials, we feel this change will continue to honor Mr. Battersby's legacy, show our contingency plan, and increase the ease of communications with our team.


We look forward to creating opportunities with all of our partners to continue mutual success.
