About Us

The office of Katz & Unterreiner was established in 1936 under the name of the principal, Kenneth G. Katz in Peekskill NY. Despite being blind, Kenneth was a man with a great deal of personality and determination. He worked for many years to build his business of both insurance and real estate.

In 1969 Stefan Unterreiner joined the firm with his first position in the office being to drive Mr. Katz to each customers house. Back in those days each policy was hand delivered to the policy holder. Mr. Katz taught Stefan the business from the ground up. In 1980 Stefan and Kenneth incorporated together to form Katz & Unterreiner, Inc. At that point the business became strictly insurance sales and servicing. In 1985, Kenneth retired from the business and he passed away in 1987 at the age of 71.

Under the guidance of Stefan, the business grew at a very quick pace through the late 80’s and 90’s. Katz & Unterreiner Inc. became a household name in Peekskill NY for auto and home insurance. In 1995, a second office was opened in Wappinger’s Falls NY. Stefan’s son Eric Unterreiner joined the company in 1996. Prior to Eric joining the office Katz & Unterreiner Inc was mostly only personal insurance. Eric started building the business side of K & U  Inc.

In 2003 Stefan Unterreiner decided to semi retire and gave more control of the daily operations over to Eric. After two years Eric was made Vice President. In 2007 Stefan Unterreiner unexpectedly passed away at the young age of 55. Eric Unterreiner took over Katz & Unterreiner Inc with the main goal of continuing the legacy of Kenneth G. Katz & Stefan J. Unterreiner.
