Our Agents

agency president

Gordon Hoerchler


After obtaining my insurance license in 1997, I worked as a Business/Commercial sales producer.  Several of my business clients asked me about safe insurance products for retirement. After receiving advice from an advisor; who recommended a combination of annuities and some additional life insurance for a portion of his investments. I enjoyed helping them and decide to attend the College for Financial Planning. Where I obtained my designation as a CRPC® (Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor). Helping clients in these two areas, allows my other agents to do an excellent job for you in their field of expertise.

Gordon has been recognized by many senior groups and churches for his workshops informing groups how and why they need to protect themselves and their children. He is an active member of the New Baden Chamber of Commerce, Sons of the American Legion, St. George Church, and a board member of Christian Home Care Services. He also, volunteers and organizes the drivers for the local meals-on-wheels program.

Why you should choose a CRPC® designee:
A CRPC® designee can evaluate your financial status and design the optimal retirement plan for your lifestyle. Get the knowledgeable advice you need on issues such as planning for health care, asset management, beneficiary designations, income tax considerations, estate planning, and more. A CRPC® designee can even help you determine the best time to retire or assist you in expanding on the plans that you’ve already made.
