As Area Vice President for Neis Insurance Company, Chris provides exceptional service for commercial insurance programs, as well as auto and home policies. An independent broker with access to multiple carriers for multiple lines, Chris specializes in creating policies that best fit each unique situation and securing insurance protection for those whom larger, national agencies cannot serve.
Available when you need him 24/7, Chris is quick to personally respond to all customer calls and provides fast referrals to start processing claims immediately. He listens to his clients to learn of their concerns and what they need for peace of mind.
More than focused on just delivering insurance, Chris is dedicated to becoming an integral part of his clients’ lives by recommending a myriad of resources. “I partner with my clients to be a knowledgeable source to help them improve their business and life situations,” says Chris. “My networks are broad and contacts diverse. I can provide support beyond insurance.”
A McHenry native, Chris Christensen graduated from McHenry East High School and served in the U.S. Army for three years, stationed in Bosnia and Korea. He earned a Bachelor’s Degree in business from the University of Illinois Chicago.
Starting his career at Motorola as an inside sales rep, Chris was recruited by American National Insurance and became involved with the Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce. Through the Chamber, Chris built solid networks with local business partners which developed into a career opportunity at Neis Insurance Company in 2004.
From sales rep to Area Vice President, Chris has taken a leadership role at Neis Insurance and in the community. He serves on the Crystal Lake Chamber Board of Directors, is one of the founding members of the Chamber’s Young Professionals Group, and chairs the Chamber’s networking group program.
