Melvin L. Battles IV (Chip)'s Profile and Contact Information
Meet Melvin L. Battles IV
Chip Battles is the third generation to have an ownership stake in this great agency. His Grandfather Leighton Battles started the agency in the late forties after returning from WWII. Next, Mike Battles came back to join the agency in the early sixties after graduated from Dartmouth college and did his time in the U.S. Army. Chip then came aboard after graduating from Mount Union College in 1994. His ownership started in 1999 and become Vice President in 2005.
Chip is a property and causality agent that enjoys the one on one time with his clients. He has great relationships with the company representatives and will shoot it straight with his customers and the companies he represents. This is a best case scenario when it matters most, at the time of loss!! “Service is Foremost” is a slogan that was taught to him by his father and he lives it every day!
Now, Battles Insurance Agency is a 24/7 job for Chip, but he tries to balance it with his family life. Chip and his beautiful wife Amy, a hometown girl, have 3 children, sons Leighton, Samuel and a daughter Drew. They all are active in organized sports and Chip can be seen on many local fields coaching baseball and football! Chip maybe the only insurance agent in the area that does not play golf. But, there is a good chance if he is not at work; you can catch him enjoying the outdoors somehow!
Being a Hometown boy Chip has been involved in many boards and organizations; he has chaired The United Methodist Church council here in Norwalk, is a Past President of the rotary club here in Norwalk, and serves on the Board of the United Fund of Norwalk. He also founded and is director of the Norwalk Naturals Baseball Association.
