Our family-owned business was started in 1993. Our agency continues to focus on crop insurance but has expanded by offering farm insurance through Nationwide Agribusiness.
After milking cows for 20 years I decided to go into the crop insurance business with my Dad, Lyle. I have been involved with agriculture my entire life and we continue to operate some cropland to keep our hands-on knowledge up to date.
While I continue to be involved with the business I am hoping to step back a little bit and let my son, Skip do more of the decision making. My wife and I enjoy our time outdoors and spending time with our grandchildren.
Skip has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls in Agricultural Engineering. He is also AFIS Certified; an Agribusiness & Farm Insurance Specialist. He married Kelly Evenson in 2009 and they have a 3 year old, Mason; a two year old, Lilly & a baby boy, Parker. He is my partner with the farming operation.
Malerie has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in nursing. While working as an RN she always helped out with the agency on a part-time basis. She decided to join the business full-time in 2012 to help our home office run smoothly. She was married to Scott Veenendall in 2008 and they had boy/girl twins in 2011.
