Our Team

William (Bill) Petersen
Owner and Producer
I graduated from University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire with a degree in Economics. I started in the insurance business in 1970 in Madison, WI. The first eighteen years in Green Bay I worked for one company who specialized in commercial insurance products. Since then, I have started my own independent agency and continue to own it today. I still enjoy the challenges of the industry and working with clients. We represent some of the best carriers in the business for both commercial and personal lines.

I joined American Advantage Insurance in April 2002 as a licensed property and casualty customer service representative. Since then, I’ve added the duties of bookkeeper as well as handling other office duties. Previously, I worked for an insurance company called American Hardware Mutual based out of Minneapolis, MN that specialized in commercial insurance – which gave me a great background for my current position.
