Meet Our Team

Victor Gray
Agency Owner

Growing up in a small town in Ohio, I realized I love protecting people. I have a drive to make sure that everyone has coverage that will protect them and their family. I have been in the asset protection business for nine years, and owned my own agency for five.

I’m a huge Steelers fan and when I’m not talking about them, you can find me talking about the U.S. Navy as I am a proud veteran. My favorite way to spend a weekend is with my kids on the lake or with my father at the race track. I’m most excited about seeing what we can do for Wounded Warriors and how we can raise awareness and support the cure to DIPG cancer.

Jackie Taubert
Customer Service Representative

I have been in the insurance industry for eighteen years now, first starting off in an independent agency. I love knowing that what I do is helping people and going to make a difference in their lives.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my children and grandchildren. My favorite way to spend my weekend is at my sister’s pool with family and friends.

Melissa Goldschmidt
Life and Benefits Specialist

I grew up in Ohio where I proceeded to get my undergraduate in education and an MBA. I’ve been in the financial services and life insurance field for nine years and with Gray Insurance Group, LLC for three. What most excites me about my job is the protection I am able to provide my clients. Life insurance is critical and I love protecting families.

I absolutely love my job, which is why when I’m not reading you can find me talking about life insurance or my latest book! When I’m not working I’m on the beach with my husband, reading or spending time with my two amazing children. I am extremely passionate about cancer awareness and cannot wait to see what our agency can do to help our community.

Brian Kelch
Vice President of Sales

I grew up in Hillsboro, Ohio. Being raised in a small-town has really helped to shape my approach in the insurance industry and my passion to help our customers. I have been privileged to help my customers obtain the proper protection to cover their insurance needs, while saving money for over four years.

I love being outdoors with my family taking frequent camping trips and ATV riding trips. When I’m not at work you can find me with them or watching football with my friends. My guilty pleasure is week-long fishing trips to Ontario, Canada at Sunset Lodge. I’m most excited to see how we can help the American Cancer Society as Agents of Change.

I joined the insurance world with Gray Insurance Group, LLC in 2014.  What most excites me about my job is helping people make sure they are covered properly for their family’s needs.

Growing up in Ross, Ohio, taught me to enjoy spending time with my kids and all the amazing things they do. If you know me, you’ll say I can’t stop talking about them and the sports they play. Most weekends, you can find me on a field or court with my kids watching their games.

My favorite way to spend my weekend is cuddled up reading with my cat, but I do have a secret love for karaoke. I’m really excited to see what we can do for Wounded Warriors and Hot Dogs for the Homeless along with the rest of our community!

John Faine

I’m new to the insurance industry, after just retiring from a long career as a Detective Lieutenant with the Sheriff’s Office. Prior to that, I served on active duty in the United States Navy from 1989-1997. I grew up in Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio, but I have always been a Buckeye at heart. I received my Criminal Justice Degree from West Virginia University while serving on active duty. After 28 years of serving my country and the citizens of my county, I’m excited to enter another career where I can protect and serve people again. With several family members already in the insurance industry, it already feels like home. As an avid sports fan, I love Pittsburgh Steelers football, Ohio State Buckeyes football and Kentucky Wildcats basketball. When I’m not working, my favorite place to be is with my family on Dale Hollow Lake. Camping, surfing, and boating are the best way to spend the summer. My wife and I regularly donate and solicit donations for the Vietnam Veterans of America. Serving those who have served is an incredible honor.

I have been working as a Customer Service Representative for six months now learning and growing with experience from listening and interacting with my co-workers.  The best part about my job is helping the customers and making sure all of their needs are met.

Growing up in Northern Kentucky helped shape my love for spending time with my family and going to our camp. When I’m not at work, you can find me spending time with my family and friends. My guilty pleasures that most people don’t know are doing hair and make-up! I am a big supporter of breast cancer and participate in several cancer walks a year.

I have been working in the insurance industry for a year. Before working at Gray Insurance Group, LLC, I have seven years experience in customer service. I love helping customers protect themselves and their families, and any day I can assist a customer with protecting their family is a great day.

I grew up in a very small town called New Haven, Kentucky before I relocated to Lebanon, Ohio, home of the Warriors in 2006. I have an adorable three-year-old named Wyatt who you’ll often hear me bragging about, which is why you’ll find me spending time with him, my nephews and all of my friend’s children in my free-time. I love going out and finding a new project like refinishing furniture, making headboards out of pallets and various other things for my home. I like to give back to my community by volunteering in our church nursery on Sundays and making dinner for the homeless twice a month.

Making sure that my clients are cared for and all their needs are met to the best of my ability makes my job very rewarding.We buy life insurance for our loved ones, not us.

I grew up in a small country town called Knightstown, and my education focuses on healthcare and nursing.I really enjoy everything behind life insurance and making sure families are taken care of. I love spending time with my kids doing arts and crafts or watching hockey on weekends. Go Blackhawks!

Jon Laino
Licensed Sales Producer

I have been selling Life & Health as well as Property & Casualty insurance since 2015 though I have been taking care of clients as an account manager for eight years. I started my career in the insurance industry with a different provider and eventually found my home here with The Gray Insurance Group. I thoroughly enjoy coming in to the office knowing that I will ensure that my customers are well covered. I have had some times in life where insurance played a huge roll, if someone had explained more to me it would have changed everything. I like to take my experience both good and bad and put it to good use.

I was born on Long Island in NY and was raised north of Cincinnati. I graduated high school with a specialty in culinary arts and I was the captain of the culinary competition team (went to state competition both years!) I have my bachelors degree in business as well as insurance licensing for the tri-state area. I really enjoy the outdoors, cooking and spending time with my fiancé as well as going on new adventures with my fiancé and getting the best out of life. A fun fact about me is that I also like to paint.

I love to do random acts of kindness, and strongly believe in paying it forward.
