I began my insurance career in 1984, working with Weis Insurance Agency in Effingham, Illinois. During my time at Weis Insurance, I attained the Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) designation from the Society of CIC and was a member of the Academy for Producer Studies. While I am no longer a member, the experience allowed me to learn many different coverage forms. Deciding which form to use means that we need to first listen to our clients.
I’ve been blessed with some really great employees and clients over the last 38 years. I believe this stems from following some good advice from author John Maxwell…”When it comes to relationships, everything begins with respect, with the desire to place value on people. Give people your full attention and show them you care about them.” At our agency, we make it a point to first listen to our clients and then focus on their insurance needs. When you call our agency during regular business hours, you will never hear an automated receptionist or a recorded message with multiple extension options. Please give us a call and let one of our team members give you the personal service you deserve.
On a personal note, I have been married to my wonderful wife, Lonni, for 36 years. We have three exceptional children, Jordan, Jared and Logan. We also have a super talented daughter-in-law, Beth. We are excited for the upcoming birth of our first grandchild later this summer. My wife and I are very active in our local church and community. Our hobbies include just about anything to do with the St. Louis Blues, Cardinals and the University of Illinois.
