Ansay & Associates, a leading regional insurance and benefits solutions agency, announced it will hire Tim Nelligan as its Chief Operating Officer, effective Sept. 1. Nelligan has over 30 years of insurance industry experience, most recently as Central Division Executive at The Hartford Insurance Group.
“With Tim’s leadership and our strong team of associates, we will continue to distinguish ourselves in the marketplace,” said Ansay & Associates Chairman & CEO Mike Ansay. “Our mission hasn’t changed: We’ll continue to provide exceptional service and innovative solutions to our carriers and clients.”
Nelligan’s expertise is in developing carrier partnerships and customer service solutions. That’s expected to continue in his new role with Ansay & Associates.
“I’m excited to get to know the associates who make Ansay & Associates a best-in-class agency,” Nelligan said. “We’ll continue to develop our people and our processes, with our goal to provide great value and peerless customer service.”
Nelligan replaces outgoing COO Tom Schaetz, who is resigning to pursue other opportunities. He had been in the position since 2005. Schaetz will remain on the executive team to ensure a successful transition leading up to his last day on Aug. 31.
Ansay & Associates, recently named one of “2017’s Fastest Growing Firms” by the Milwaukee Business Journal, now serves over 5,000 Wisconsin businesses and 20,000 individual customers. It has more than 220 employees and 10 offices throughout Wisconsin.
