Remembering Debbie Edelmayer 1959-2022 – Sports Insurance Pioneer

It is with deepest regret that we announce the passing of Debbie Edelmayer.

If Sadler & Company had a Hall of Fame, Debbie would definitely be in it. She meant so much to Sadler & Company and to me personally with her service from 1977 to 2013. I don’t believe the company would have ever been as successful as it is without Debbie’s unique contributions.

Debbie started out as a front desk receptionist and advanced through the ranks to personal lines CSR, commercial lines CSR, and then to sports department manager. She was a corporate officer of Sadler & Co.

She was a tireless worker and a loyal and dedicated employee who loved her Sadler family and the clients and carriers that she served. In the early days of our sports insurance niche, she pioneered a number of innovative techniques that allowed us to handle the huge volume of small transactions in an efficient way. And if we ever had a problem with our workflow or staffing, Debbie knew exactly how to fix it. And if the fix didn’t work, she always had a plan B ready. She formed many deep personal relationships with our clients and they always appreciated the outstanding customer service that she provided. She was more than just a leader to her team, she was a mentor and set the foundation for all of those that would come after her. Her legacy will forever remain in Sadler Sports.

It was a pleasure working side by side with Debbie for so many years. I think many of us spent more time with Debbie at work than we did with our families at home.

We will always be grateful to Debbie for her contributions and what she has meant to each one of us.

To her children, Kathryn Swift & John Spigner, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We know how much you all meant to Debbie.
