Ken Houp, Principal
Ken continues to utilize his accumulated insurance knowledge and experience which spans over fifty-five years to offer solutions to clients for ways to protect their assets. He knows his clients’ hard work and efforts can be destroyed or lost partially or entirely through one act of negligence which may have been prevented with proper insurance protection.
With client cooperation Ken can take action and make recommendations to provide options of insurance protection to eliminate or lessen losses which may occur.
He believes good insurance coverage is necessary for any business to thrive and endure in today’s business world. Likewise, an individual also needs guidance to preserve and protect one’s possessions. Ken attempts to meet these goals with integrity and determination.
