Article Provided by IIASD
“Our 2015 Company Rep of the Year has been working in the independent insurance agency system since 1972 when he took his first job as a claims adjuster with Tri-State Insurance Company in Luverne, MN. He grew up in the Luverne community and went on to Southwest State in Marshall, MN.
In 1982, he married Jan – the love of his life and they were blessed with two sons, Ryan and Andy.
They moved to Spencer, Iowa, where he managed Clay County Mutual for several years before going to work for Heritage Insurance Company. It was here that he met fellow Heritage employee, Jerry Diamond, who – by the way claims he taught him everything he knows.
He worked for Milwaukee Insurance before settling down in his 17-year career with Farmers Alliance Insurance Company. A great promoter of the independent insurance agency system, you know he loved his job, as you never saw him without a smile on his face. Now the smile has even grown bigger as he is enjoying retirement. He won’t completely lose touch with the insurance industry as his son, Andy was hired to take his place with Farmers Alliance.
Better known to most of us here as the “Ice Cream Man”, join us in congratulating our 2016 Company Representative of the Year, Al Schmuck.”
Congratulations Al Schmuck! What a way to go out!
