South Dakota Farmers Union Insurance Welcomes New Regional Manager

 – By

South Dakota Farmers Union Insurance welcomes Jason Wells to serve as the new Regional Manager.

 "Jason brings extensive leadership and career experience to this role," said Karla Hofhenke, SDFU Executive Director. "We are confident he will administer exceptional guidance and support to our team of South Dakota Farmers Union Insurance agents who help provide risk protection to many families throughout South Dakota.

 Growing up in rural North Dakota, Wells began his career with Farmers Union Insurance of North Dakota right out of college. "My entire career has been 100 percent Farmers Union Insurance. Over the years, I have worked in every aspect of insurance," said Wells, who started out in operations and eventually became vice president of underwriting and marketing for Farmers Union Insurance of Montana.

 Wells is excited for the opportunity to lead South Dakota Farmers Union Insurance and cannot wait to get started.  He is also happy to bring his wife, Becci, and son, Carter, back to the Midwest and closer to family.

Your local insurance agency

Wells says he loves the fact we are a local insurance agency and that insurance agents can expect top notch support and service from him and his team in the Huron home office. It's my job to ensure our agents have the support they need to best serve their customers."

 Being a South Dakota agency means when you purchase insurance from a Farmers Union insurance agent, you are making a local purchase - and will receive local service and support.

 "Insurance is something you hope you never need; but when you do, it's nice to be able to pick up the phone and call your local agent who can drive over and help you out," Wells explains. "Our agents live in the communities they serve. They know their customers and because of those relationships, they can help ensure their customers' risks are protected."

Farmers Union Insurance is yet another way that South Dakota Farmers Union supports family farmers, ranchers and rural communities, explains Doug Sombke, President of SDFU.

 "Not only do our agents help ensure their friends and neighbors are protected from risk, but they actively give back to their communities. Each year Farmers Union Insurance donates $25,000 in scholarships to young people from rural communities across South Dakota," Sombke said.
