Eric Heinrich
Director of Operations - Dayton at Meridian Insurance

With 5 years of experience, Eric is widely respected for his unparalleled customer interaction and retention skills. He prides himself on working diligently with each client to ensure that their specific needs are met.

“As an independent agent, I have the opportunity to quote multiple companies to find the carrier that is “just right” for my client’s needs. While price is always an important factor, it’s necessary to make sure that my clients are adequately covered. I strive to achieve both of these important factors when dealing with a prospective client. I love the multiple carrier aspect of being an independent agent. I’m not tied down to just quoting one product. I can find the precise company that fits my client’s needs. Insurance is a changing industry, it’s imperative for a client to have an agent on their side that’s always looking out for THEIR best interest.”

Eric was born and raised in Huber Heights. He is a sports fanatic who loves the Bengals, Buckeyes, Reds and Flyers. He has been married to his wife, Michelle, for almost 6 years. They just had their first son, Brady, in September of 2014. He enjoys spending time with his family and playing competitive slow pitch softball and recreational basketball in his free time.
