Edward Asvazadourian

Founder

Edward Asvazadourian, who is married to Ann and the proud father of three daughters and a son, is a past resident of Pleasantville, New York, and a US Navy veteran.

Mr. Asvazadourian served in the United States Navy during the Viet Nam police action. Immediately after his discharge in 1968, he was recruited as a sales agent for the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. While at Metropolitan Life, he achieved membership to the coveted Million Dollar Round Table for multiple years and became #1 Sales Manager in the tri-state area.

In 1985 he coupled his desire to achieve with his wish to provide his clients with the best in insurance with great rates and great customer service: The Dorian Agency was born. As an independent agent for numerous companies including Metropolitan Property & Casualty, US Life and Union Central, The Dorian Agency soon achieved the status of a leading agency.

Mr. Asvazadourian retired in 2008. He entrusted The Dorian Agency into the very capable hands of his children, Kirsten, Tanya and Steven, who make the legacy of their father proud by not only continuing his dream but successfully expanding on it.
