  • Community Insurance Agency (CIA) owners Ashley and Joe Schieffert along with Dwight DeBoer of Lafayette would like to introduce Laurie Eckstein as their newest agent. Laurie began her duties at CIA on Monday, June 10.
    While this is a change of direction for Laurie who has been involved in sales for more than 15 years, she is excited for the opportunity to work closely with people and businesses in the Sleepy Eye and New Ulm area.
    Previously Laurie was a regional sales manager for a company based out of Oregon and prior to that a sale representative for AMPI in New Ulm.
    Some may remember Laurie when she managed Emerald Travel in New Ulm.
    "I'm starting a new career," Laurie said. "This is a whole new venture and it will be fun!" 
    Laurie's duties at CIA will include prospecting new clients, policy maintenance, customer service and day to day duties in the insurance business.
    "I'm very dedicated to customer service, which I feel is very important in every business, especially the insurance industry.
    While Laurie wasn't in the insurance industry previously, owner Joe Schieffert said her excellent customer service and the ability to work closely with people and businesses is what made her an excellent candidate for this position.
    "Laurie has excellent customer service from working in sales for the past 15 years and that's what the insurance industry is about," Joe added. "We are happy to make her a part of our team." 
    While Laurie will be working primarily with business insurance, she is also licensed in personal lines.
    "I encourage people to stop in and say hello," Laurie said. "If anyone is interested in the services we provide, I would be happy to help."
