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 traveled across the United States and through Canada, going to clients who had called upon their policy to restore what was lost. While most never make a claim with their insurance policies, being able to help those affected by wildfires, tornadoes, hail storms, hurricanes, and flood ridden zones was not only challenging but wildly rewarding.
It is this breadth of experience that gives him a unique approach with his agency. He is familiar with the various policies 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 its proprietary products, our agency is 100% independent from our carriers.
When it comes to something as important protecting your family and its future, deciding on what company to work with is critical.
That is why we decided to remain independent when it came to what insurance companies we offer. Working with an agency that has an in-depth knowledge of multiple insurance products, companies, and their underwriting standards allow us to provide the right policy to our clients.
What separates one agent from another is their ability to proactively service their policyholders with their knowledge of the insurance industry, products, and different risks that may present themselves to their clients.
