In 1935, William A. Stilz, Steve Dugan’s great grandfather, founded the William A. Stilz Insurance Agency. Soon after, his grandfather, W.A. Stilz Jr, founded his own agency that later merged with his father. In 1961, Charles (Mickey) Dugan, Steve’s father, joined the agency and in 1965 it became Stilz and Dugan Insurance. In 1986, Steve joined his father in the agency, and in the mid ‘90’s, it became Dugan Insurance Agency. Upon Mickey’s retirement in 1999, Steve retained ownership of the agency that has been family owned and proudly served the Louisville area since its founding. In 1966, Donald T. Fusting founded Fusting Insurance Agency. Donnie Fusting joined his father in 1987, and sister, Kim Fusting Franczyk joined the agency in 1995. Upon Donald’s retirement in 1999, Donnie and Kim retained ownership of the agency that has proudly served the Louisville area since its founding.
Steve Dugan and Donnie Fusting became friends while attending the many industry meetings and felt they would be a stronger force in the industry if they merged their family agencies.
Fusting and Dugan Insurance LLC was formed in October 2006 when Donnie Fusting, Kim Fusting Franczyk, and Steve Dugan merged their family agencies. As a result, the merger gives them the ability to better serve their clients by offering additional markets that allows their clients more options and competitive rates.
In 1964, Jack Bruckert, Mark Bruckert’s father, established Jack Bruckert Insurance Service. In 1975, Mark joined his father and together in 1978 formed Audubon Insurance Service, Inc.

In 1987, Mark met Donnie through the many industry meetings and became friends. In February 2007, Mark merged with Fusting and Dugan Insurance, LLC. as a partner.
