James Trewick, CIC's Profile and Contact Information
Jim started his career with Mutual of Omaha in St Cloud MN in the spring of 1984 which has given me a strong background in health, life and disability. Within two months I was hired by St Cloud Metropolitan Agency after Owen Peterson, the agency manager, and I had a nice talk during a St Cloud Jaycee’s softball game. St Cloud Metropolitan Agency was one of the top three property casualty agencies in the St Cloud area. I worked as an agent there until 1995 giving me the addition of property and casualty Insurance experience. In 1989 while at St Cloud Metropolitan Agency, I earned my C.I.C. (Certified Insurance Counselor) designation. Unfortunately, or fortunately, as you may look at it, the agency was sold to Norwest Bank. I stayed on for about 5 months and decided that the corporate world was not for me.
Then the adventure began. Tri-County Insurance (originally called Trewick Insurance) was born in the spring of 1995 in the basement of my house with the help of BlueCross BlueShield, Progressive, Farmers, RAM, Mid-Minnesota Mutual, and Austin Mutual. Then in December of that same year, John Christiansen came to me and told me of a small agency in Foley MN that had an Auto-Owners contract for sale. I will always be grateful to him for this help.
Tri-County Insurance currently has two locations and 7 employees serving the Sauk Rapids, Foley and St Cloud greater area. We sell all lines of insurance coverage and always strive to do what is best for the customer. As our motto says, “Protecting Your Today…Insuring Your Tomorrow”.
