About Pierce Insurance

Our Company was established in 1974 by David Pierce. Dave had been an insurance agent since 1966 when he went to work for the First Service Agencies. In 1970 Dave and his family moved to Olivia where he was a partner in the American State Agency. Dave then decided to go into business for himself. In 1974 he started this agency.

Since 1974, this Company has grown to one of the largest insurance agencies in out-state Minnesota. At present, Pierce Agency serves the insurance needs of over 1,000 clients in Central Minnesota and adjacent areas.

The Pierce Insurance. is a firm of proven professionals, and caring and conscientious people, the kind of people you can depend on. Our professional associates, in addition to their CIC, and other professional training, are urged to match the policy to the buyer by attention to detail and personal service. We have a commitment to maintain a high standard of excellence in all that we do and to establish a firm relationship of mutual trust and service with each of our clients.

Now as in the past, we base every decision on what is best for our clients.

Our size and stability give us the security to look out for our clients interests at all times, because in the long run that is best for our business as well.

I started selling insurance with my father David in 1980. I am licensed and sell all lines of business and personal insurance. In 1991 I obtained the Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) designation. In 2003 I purchased the agency from my father. I have enjoyed the many contacts and friendships I have made over the years. I will always try my hardest to earn and keep your business.

I have been with Pierce Insurance Agency since 2001 and have a strong background in the service/sales industry. I specialize in commercial, personal, health and life insurance.

I have forged several strong relationships with the insurance companies we work with. I earned the Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) award in 2006.

My philosophy is that insurance is more than a policy. It is a promise of service and protection: to be there in the event of a claim, to grow along with your needs and to change with your life. My commitment is to always look out for your family or business.

I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss your current situation and goals and come up with a solution that is affordable while providing the best protection.

Unlike your automobile or home, insurance protection is often considered intangible, similar to what the future might be. However, my experience working on "both sides of the street" has proven that ensuring that you have adequate insurance coverage is one of the most important and tangible decisions a person can make.

After obtaining my Master's Degree, in 1986, I started my professional career working for an insurance carrier as a safety consultant or as they were termed "the eyes and ears of the underwriter". At that time being young, I did not believe losses occurred. After 5 years, I went to work in the construction industry, responsible for insurance and risk management and I soon discovered how important accurate and complete coverage is to a successful business. For the next 14 years, I saw first-hand how important insurance, safety and heavy construction projects work together; side-by-side to complete large building projects and protect the owners, managers, employers and employees who had a financial stake in there successful outcome.

When the Pierce Agency opportunity presented itself, I realized that I could provide my knowledge, skills, and experience to commercial, agricultural, personal, life and health insurance markets and I have not looked back since.

Helping people understand the importance of protecting themselves, explaining how to do so and then providing the coverage at a reasonable rate has become a passion and personal mission statement.

I have been an insurance agent at Pierce Insurance Agency since 2010. After graduating from Litchfield High School in 2005, I went to St. Cloud State University and graduated in the fall of 2009 with a degree in Insurance/Risk Management, and a minor in Communication Studies. I am licensed and capable of handling all kinds of insurance. Currently I am in the process of getting my CIC (Certified Insurance Counselor) Designation.

The Insurance Companies we represent all have reputations of treating insureds well when it comes time to handle a claim. Claims handling/facilitating is my number one priority as an agent. I want my customers to have proper coverage for if/when something happens, and they want to feel like somebody is on their side until they are paid and get back to life as usual.

Most of the time, regardless of the industry, when insured's need something from their insurance agent they need it that day. If you are considering getting quotes on any type of insurance that you have, I hope you will consider giving me a chance!

I began my insurance career in 2002 as rose through the ranks at Pierce Insurance from Receptionist, to Account Assistant to Agent.  I obtained my CISR (Certified Insurance Service Representative) Designation in 2007 and my CIC (Certified Insurance Counselor) Designation in 2014.

My experience with several agency roles gives me the insight to know our carriers inside and out, providing me the knowledge to place your policy with the company that is the best fit for you.

Insurance is an essential piece in your “Asset Management” puzzle, but many business owners and individuals don’t fully understand what they are buying or why.  I strive to educate my customers on what they are buying; by explaining what the “Insurance terms” mean in plain language and relatable scenarios.

You have “Go-To” Professionals in your life that you trust for home repairs, haircuts, taxes, financial planning and more!  Give me the opportunity to earn your trust as your “Go-To” Insurance Professional.
