Holub Insurance Agency, LLC was started in 1946 by Ben’s Father, Stanley Holub, near Central City, Iowa. Holub Insurance Agency, LLC has had a seat on the board of directors of Eastern Iowa Mutual Insurance Association; of Mount Vernon, Iowa since 1946 (Eastern Iowa Mutual was called "Bohemian Farmers County Mutual Insurance Association" at that time, before it merged with Linn Mutual Insurance Association in 2001).
In 1995, I earned my personal lines license and purchased my father’s agency. Holub Insurance started to write auto insurance as well as provide Home and Farm Insurance. In 1996, Stanley stepped down from the Board at Eastern Iowa Mutual and placed me on the board of directors. In 1998 I purchased another agency near Center Point, Iowa. Holub Insurance started to write Federal Crop and Crop Hail Insurance. I also went back to school to get my commercial lines license that year.
I live on a small acreage in rural Walker with my family and pets. I graduated college with a BA in environmental science, and made an unregretful career change into the insurance industry. I started as the agency’s office manager in November 2015 and quickly obtained my license to become an insurance agent. I currently have alicense in personal, commercial, and crop insurance lines. I love working in the small town country office with the “guys”, but also greatly enjoy getting out of the office to visit clients and ensure all their insurance needs are met.
I graduated from North-Linn and went to Kirkwood for two years to study Ag Business. I started working with Holub Insurance Agency, LLC. in December of 2015 after obtaining my Federal Crop Insurance License in November. Subsequently, I was also able to obtain my personal lines licensure. I currently live in Marion and was raised with a farming background. I'd be happy to take care of any of your Crop insurance needs.
I've worked in the Insurance industry for 25 years. I'm licensed in Personal Lines and Commercial Lines. I love working in a small town agency as, I get to know the people and enjoy sharing their life experiences with them. I pride myself in my customer service and feel that is my strongest trait. I have my CIC (Certified Insurance Counselor) designation, CISR (Certified Insurance Service Rep), and AINS (Associate in Insurance Services) certifications. Most of my free time is spent with family and my first granddaughter, or riding my motorcycle.
I graduated from the University of Dubuque in 1975 with a teaching and coaching degree. I taught school at Maple Valley Schools in Mapleton, IA for 8 years then worked in Insurance for 8 years (and coached sports at Maple Valley for 17 years). I moved to Alburnett, IA in 1992 and worked out of the NXT Bank of Central City, IA for last 26 years. I've continued to follow my passion for coaching youth being the varsity softball coach at Alburnett. My wife Teri and I have 3 children and 6 grandchildren all living close to Alburnett. My insurance career has been very rewarding building close relationships helping farmers find solutions to protecting their assets so they are in a better position to be profitable.
