Ken has over ten years of experience in the Insurance industry, specifically claims.
His roles ranged from customer service to auto adjustment/claim handling, subrogation and recovery, and five years as a catastrophic property adjuster. Though Insurance might not be the first career choice for many, Ken found great value to help those who need it the most.
As a Catastrophic adjuster- he was able to travel across the United States, and through Canada, going to clients who had called upon their policy to restore what was taken. Wild fires, tornadoes, hail storms, hurricanes, and flood ridden zones.
It is this breath of experience that gives him a unique approach with his agency. He is familiar with the coverages that restore people after a loss and the denials that often paint the industry with a bad name.
After a short stint as a captive agent, he realized that his impact was very limited to the preferred clientele of that singular company. As someone who defined his professional career by helping people, this was in direct conflict with his mission to help people.
That is when he started The Weikum Group.
Why do business with The Weikum Group?
Unlike a captive, or direct insurance company who only offers their own proprietary products, our agency is 100% independent of any one company. Many insurance consumers don’t fully understand just how important that really is.
When it comes to something as important as insurance, it’s imperative that you work with an agency who has an in-depth knowledge of multiple insurance products, companies, and guidelines — not just one.
At the end of the day, what separates one agent from another, is their ability to proactively service their policy holders, and their knowledge of the insurance industry, products, and different situations that may present themselves to their clients.
