Jon Halvorsen, VP Agency Development for Public Insurance Agency

Island Lake, IL- Public Insurance, a full service independent auto insurance agency, is pleased to announce the recent hiring of Jon Halvorsen as Vice President of Agency Development at our new location in Island Lake.

Jon, the former V.P. of Sales at Capitol Insurance Agency, brings to Public over twenty years of experience serving Island Lake and the surrounding communities. Jon is a familiar face to many drivers and aims to continue the relationships he has built over the past two decades at his new home.

“We are fortunate to have someone with such strong ties in the community join our agency,” said Melanie Palmer, Director of Administration & Human Resources. “Having provided auto insurance coverage in the area for his entire career, Jon has developed a loyal client base and possesses a thorough understanding of the community’s needs.”

In addition to Jon’s twenty years of professional experience he is also a lifelong Lake County resident, active member of his church, and father of two. Jon shares a common bond with his clients, who are also his neighbors, and treats each one accordingly. Jon has laid a foundation of trust upon which Public will grow.

Upon hearing of Jon’s return to the area, longtime client Crystal Williams of Wauconda said, “I was so sad when Jon left, this is great news! I was involved in a really bad accident last year and I don’t know what I would have done without Jon’s help. He really has his customer’s best interest in mind.”

Already, Jon has reinforced the neighborly atmosphere of Public by hiring Brenda Hernandez as an agent. Brenda worked alongside Jon for over twenty years at Capitol and has the experience to match. Together, they provide their clients with a service that stretches far beyond the fifteen minute phone call that has become the norm at other agencies.

Please join us in welcoming Jon and Brenda to the Public team. Feel free to stop by or contact them with any questions or comments you may have.
