Meet Our Team

John Koch
Agency Owner

I have been pretty much born an agency owner. I spent the first 5 years out of college working for Merck Pharmaceutical before starting my 27-year career as an agency owner.

I grew up in Baltimore city in a row home off of the 14th hole at Mt. Pleasant golf course. I worked at Mt. Pleasant in the pro shop as a kid from age 11 through college. I attended Loyola High School and Towson University -played golf on both school teams 4 years each. I graduated form Towson with a business administration and finance degree.

I really enjoy seeing my staff making connections with our clients and watching the relationships with each other build over the years.  I really enjoy meeting and consulting with other small business owners. Sharing ideas and experience is a lot of fun and very rewarding. Two years ago I co- founded “The Baltimore breakfast club”.  We have 35 business owner members all from different industries get together once per week for breakfast. It’s always a very powerful and rewarding experience.

On most weekends you’ll find me at home spending time with my wife Joanne and the 4 kids. My favorite weekend activities are riding in the Jeep Wrangler, playing golf, going for hikes and my recent new hobby- mountain bike trail riding.

My guilty pleasure is ice cream milk shakes every night before bed. Not sure I could get to sleep without one. I probably will need professional help when the time comes to give up the nightly milk shakes.

I fundraise for Johns Hopkins Children’s Cancer research and volunteer weekly at “Believe in Tomorrow Children’s House in Canton”. Once a week we go and clean the facility so the families can enjoy their time away from the hospital.

I have been working in the insurance industry for the last two and a half years.

My one guilty pleasure are cookies.

I grew up in Baldwin, Maryland and now live in Canton.  I went to Boys’ Latin High School and Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland.I enjoy managing people’s every day risks and making sure they are properly insured!

I love listening to music and playing sports! If I’m not watching or playing sports, I’m working around the house. My car is always clean, and I wash it way too often!

I help the office in volunteering for Meals-On-Wheels.

Mary Ellen Eicholtz

I was a contract bond underwriter for Fidelity and Deposit Company for 13 years. I switched fields to the property and casualty industry about ten years ago when I joined Koch Insurance.
I grew up in Chevy Chase, MD just outside of Washington, D.C. I came to Baltimore to attend Loyola University and made this my home after graduation.

I’m proud of our customer service. I’m happy when I can help someone whether it is simply listening or helping with his or her policy.

I enjoy traveling, always planning my next vacation getaway. I usually can be found on the sidelines of a soccer field watching my teenage daughter play with her Club Team.

I grew up in Parkville and I am the oldest of four children. My husband grew up in Dundalk and is the youngest of four children. We have been married for 35 years. The best part of my job is deaing with people every day and taking the time to explain how insurance works.
