Agents of Change

Serving the Midwest and Beyond

Connell Insurance sees its role a little differently than most agencies. Our agents aren’t simple order-takers because they understand that when it comes to helping clients manage their risks, insurance is just the beginning. We think our clients keep coming back to us because we don’t just pay lip-service to “building relationships”. By taking the time to know you and your business – and your family – we develop a clear understanding of your needs, even when they extend beyond insurance.

As we have searched and found solutions to common problems in our own house, we have often shared these “Connell Concepts” with our clients. It may seem obvious that doing so is just good business, but it still makes us a little different from the pack. At Connell Insurance, we’re changing the way business is done.

What Our Clients Are Saying

  • Through my experiences with Connell Insurance, they have proven to be an industry leader for commercial insurance and group benefits. Not only are they experts in their respective industries and offer competitive pricing, their risk mitigation services such as Human Resources and Work Comp set them apart from other agencies. We have taken advantage of these services which has saved our organization both time and money.

  • I can recommend Jay Hickman and Connell Insurance with great confidence and satisfaction. Last year we decided that what we needed was a business partner, not just another insurance agency. We found just that with Connell Insurance.

    Clayton P. Belknap
    CFO, Golden Eagle of Arkansas
  • I've been a customer of Connell's since 1975. I've stayed with them all these many years because of the high level of service and their emphasis on always returning phone calls. The staff knows their business, are always helpful, and will help you get the information you need when you need it.

  • Connell has given us exceptional service. If you are looking for a benefits agent, Connell is your best choice. Why do I say this? They are local, immediate response to phone calls or emails, friendly knowledgeable staff. If they don’t know the answer to your question, they tell you upfront and then research and respond.

    Cedar Bay Entertainment LLC
  • When I was facing threats of non-renewal because of hail-related claims, I decided after more than 20 years to look for coverage with another agency. Connell Insurance came highly recommended and I soon discovered why. Misty was most helpful in finding us excellent coverage at more-than-competitive premiums.

    Bob Hankins
    Family Insurance Client
  • The customer service is excellent. Even as busy as they are, they take time to make sure my questions and needs for advice and guidance are addressed promptly. I regret that I did not make the change to Connell Insurance sooner. I would recommend this fine agency to anyone.
