Meet Our Team

R Scott Peiffer
Agency Principal / Owner


My career in the insurance industry began with my role as an underwriter with Nationwide in 1980. Later, in 1983, I moved into sales and started my very own agency, from scratch! The journey from then until now has been a rewarding one. I am honored to live up to my role as a trusted advisor for members of this community. I wholeheartedly enjoy being in the unique position to help people with their insurance needs by explaining things so that they can better understand their coverage needs. After all, everyone needs insurance!

I’ve lived in Camp Hill, PA and moved to Etters not long after Graduating from Shippensburg University in 1980. Aside from business, my close friends and family members will tell you I am very passionate about cooking, and they’re right! One of my ways to spend my free time is to entertain guests at my home by the grill. Something most people do not know about me is that I also like to go scuba diving!

R Bradley Peiffer, Esq.
Vice President | In-House Legal Counsel

Email Bradley:

I have over six years’ experience as a practicing attorney which includes insurance defense litigation.  I came on board to the Peiffer Agency in the Summer of 2018—originally as an associate agent and to provide in-house legal counsel. However, my role in the agency has grown since then and I am happy to be a permanent member of the team.

I grew up in northern York County and attended Red Land High School.  Thereafter, I graduated from The Pennsylvania State University and subsequently attended Western Michigan University Thomas M. Cooley Law School.  During my tenure at law school, I was a Senior Associate Editor of Law Review, I obtained a certificate of merit in Pre-trial Skills, and graduated with honors, cum laude. I even used to chair the York County Bar Association’s Clarence “Chuck” Patterson Diversity Scholarship where I mentored law school students at the York Public Defender’s Office.
I am very excited to offer a new perspective on the business and to help clients protect their families, homes, and assets. I am proud of my role as a trusted advisor to many in this community I call home.

Hobbies of mine include: playing ice hockey, snowboarding, and researching new stock market investment opportunities. Something that most people don’t know about me is that I play both guitar and piano, having been a practiced musician for much of my life. When I’m not working, you can certainly find me winding down with a glass of wine and spending time with my wife, Stephanie, and two daughters, Aurie and Adaline.

Karen M. Ross
Senior Agent, CISR

Email Karen:

I am very proud of my 34+ years of experience in the insurance industry– in both personal and commercial lines. I’ve taken both the CISR & CIC insurance courses have even been a notary since 2001! I grew up in Minnesota and started my insurance career in 1985. I later moved to Pennsylvania in 1992 and have called this state home ever since.

The best part of my job is fostering the relationships and trust I’ve gained with clients over the years, along with contributing my insurance expertise. I enjoy knowing that at the end of the day, I am helping people to keep the things they love most in life properly protected.

I enjoy going to the beach and in my free time, I will play just about any sport that will get me outdoors and in the sun. When I am not in the office, you can find me at home with my husband, daughter, son and a new little puppy named Maggie.

Tim Brenneman
Associate Agent

Email Tim:

I have been an associate agent for a long time, since 1984 in fact! The best part about my job has always been having the unique opportunity to be a trusted advisor to the members of this wonderful community. I was born and raised here in York, PA and I am proud to call myself a veteran.

Something that most people know about me is that I am a big sports guy. I enjoy watching the Steelers and Penn State football, and am even a longtime (suffering) Baltimore Orioles fan. My family is something that has always been very important to me. That’s why when I’m not in the office, you can find me spending time with my wife and the rest of my family. Aside from that, I am a news and politics addict and like to read books whenever I have free time.

I have been with the Peiffer Agency for about 10 years now. I am a bilingual associate agent licensed in Personal, Commercial Allied and Life lines. One of my favorite parts about my job is educating people on the need for insurance, so they can better keep their loved ones protected from whatever life throws their way.

I grew up in Brooklyn, New York but have since fallen in love with life here in York County. I consider this community my home and its people my family! That’s why what we do here at the Peiffer Agency feels so rewarding on a daily basis. I know that because of the work that we do, there are entire families that can enjoy peace of mind. Family is something that has always been important to me, that’s why I enjoy spending my free time with my daughter & grandkids.

Associate Agent

I grew up in Lancaster, PA. I was a Division 1 swimmer at Georgia Southern University and briefly lived in Jacksonville, FL before returning to the central PA area.

Although I am new to the insurance industry, I have a strong background in Real Estate Investing and Property Management. I enjoy getting to help people and through this career, I am able to do that. Whether getting them better pricing or getting them a better policy. I enjoy ending a conversation with the client being happy with what we were able to accomplish.

Outside of work, I enjoy gardening, cooking, and taking care of my chickens! I am also interested in Broadway and musicals. I’ve seen the Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Grease. the Rockettes and Phantom of the Opera all twice!

Associate Agent

I have lived in York, PA for my entire life and have always enjoyed the communities I’ve had a chance to be apart of within the city. I went to college at Shippensburg University where I graduated with a Bachelors’s Degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology.

As a recent college graduate in 2020, my insurance career has just recently begun but, I have already found a great interest in the insurance field! Being able to learn new terminologies and concepts every day is something that pushes me to keep excelling within my field.

I thoroughly enjoy being able to work with people within my community on a day to day basis. I have always been a people person and in this position, I am given the opportunity to help people feel more safe and secure which is a very rewarding feeling.

The two things I cannot stop talking about outside of work is food and sports! My favorite way to spend a weekend is eating great food with my family and playing whatever games we can. One talent I have that customers may find interesting is that I can juggle as well as ride a unicycle

I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience so far in the insurance industry. The best part about my job is coming to work and learning something new every day. I have always had a passion for helping people, so I am very proud to be working with Peiffer Insurance where we get to help people with their insurance needs every single day!

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico, came to the USA in 2007, then went to YTI Career and graduated with an Associate Business Management Degree in 2009. Afterward, I worked for 9 years in the Hospitality Industry–which I loved, but wanted to try something different and more intellectually stimulating. So far, working with insurance has felt like a perfect fit!

The many learning opportunities and the experiences I’ve shared with my coworkers always makes one want to be back in the office. Not only that, but here at Peiffer Insurance, we always have a positive attitude and make sure to provide top-quality service, with a smile! (And we have the best boss ever!!) In my free time, I like to play sports and do various activities with my wonderful family.

I was born and raised in  Massachusetts and eventually moved to Maryland when I was 14. I received my  P&C license in July of 2019 and started working at Peiffer Insurance as an agent in April of 2020!

What wakes me up is knowing and enjoying the process behind educating our clients. Being able to provide coverage to help and protect their lifestyle is very important.

Outside of work, I take pleasure in spending time with friends and family. Exploring new places, traveling, and weekend car trips are my usual activities.
