Chris

chris@aiamankato.com

If you get a chance to connect with Chris, you will come away with a smile. She LOVES meeting people and finding out what is important to them… what they want to protect. Her knowledge of insurance for home, business, health and life is a really great tool to help plan your future and protect the things that you value most.

Chris is a family centered person with a husband and two children. She hails from Silver Lake MN, and has one sister and two brothers.

She will listen to your stories about your kids, your work and when it comes to scrap booking to running, decorating the home or getting outside with the kids, she has a few stories of her own to share. 🙂

Chris is a partner with Mike as owners of Alliance. She has been a licensed agent since 2005 and says she got into the business because she always wanted to have her own business, and as a way to build her own retirement and her children’s future.

Mike

mike@aiamankato.com

Do you know this guy? Mike may truly enjoy the work he does sitting behind his desk, but when the work is done he likes to head to the woods, get out on the lakes or head down a trail somewhere. He knows about making the most out of life and quality of life is very important to Mike, just like it is to you!

He is married to Tammi, has two sons, and has two brothers and one sister. Family is part of what grounds Mike and reminds him every day about what his real values are.

Mike has been in the business for 16 years, and before that he was an auto mechanic. Talk about a wide range of experiences!

Mike still likes to work with his hands and takes great pride in doing a lot of his own landscaping and home improvement projects.

Owning his own Agency is the realization of a dream and something that makes Mike smile…even when he isn’t outside playing or building something. 🙂

As Mike puts it, “owning this agency and making the career shift is kind of like a major journey. … a modern day covered wagon situation…move my business and my family further up the trail”.

John

john@aiamankato.com

John Zrust is relatively new to the insurance business, which gives him a valuable fresh perspective for his clients.  He loves the part of his job where he gets to chat with our clients and gets to know them better.  He says it is one way he can make sure he is bringing some added value to the business relationship.

John comes to us with sales and customer service experience. He will focus on commercial and personal insurance.

John is married to Erin and they have a daughter, so he understands why families need enough of the right kind of insurance!

Kari was born and raised near Madison Lake and graduated from Cleveland High School (go Clippers!)

When asked about her hobbies or interests we kind of got stuck on one topic…. Racing!  In fact her personal life seems to really rotate around the race track.   Her story:  One day while at the local race track she met this guy Chad and now they are married and have two lovely daughters…all of whom are race track fans!  Her hubby races a modified and her daughters both race go-carts.

Off the track Kari is a fun person to work with and just the right professional CSR to take care of your insurance details and make you feel right at home at Alliance Insurance.

I Would Recommend Alliance For Your Insurance Needs!

“Chris, Mike and the staff at Alliance Insurance Agency have always gone out of their way to provide the little extra in customer service.  They understand the daily operations of a small business and how saving money on  insurance is important, but also having the correct company coverage is vital for long-term success.  They work with various insurance companies which is beneficial for rate and policy program comparisons.  I would recommend Alliance for your insurance needs.”
