FudgeFudge Insurance Founders Insurance was founded in 2006 when Paul Fudge and his son Doug decided, with the support of family and friends, to form their own independent insurance agency in Central Florida.

Under Paul’s leadership, Fudge established values focused on faith, integrity, giving-back, and recognizing the worth of every client and employee.  Staying faithful to these founding principles has allowed us to develop lasting relationships with amazing customers, and also led to many years of consistently positive business results.  Since those humble beginnings, we have grown to serve a truly global footprint of more than 5000 customers in nearly 30 countries, and from Paul and Doug sharing a small room in an office they didn’t own to having a large team of awesome employees.

In 2021 Doug and Fudge Insurance CFO Jared Townsend completed the acquisition of the agency from Paul and his wife Melonie.  Doug and Jared plan to continue delivering the excellent customer experience Fudge prides itself on, while making exciting new investments in people, technology, and data-driven agency management.

Although the torch has been passed, the influence of Paul and Melonie lives on & we thank them for that!
