The Commitment to Community Award is presented quarterly to a Chamber Member who demonstrates a commitment to improving the quality of life for residents and/or businesses in the greater Belleville area. The Ambassadors are honored to present this quarter’s award to Yaekel & Associates Insurance Services, Inc.
Yaekel & Associates Insurance is an independent agency located at 1915 West Main Street in Belleville. Formerly known as the Niemeyer Agency, they were founded back in 1897. For well over 100 years, they have been committed to carrying on a tradition of excellent customer service that clients can rely on. Since they are an independent agency, that means they work for you, not the insurance companies. They have a stellar reputation with hundreds of businesses, professionals, and individuals in our communities.
They offer a wide range of options for both personal and commercial insurance needs. They focus on risk management, helping you reduce your insurance costs. Their mission is to work diligently to provide excellent service and superior products at competitive prices while helping their clients to feel as comfortable working with them as if they were asking a friend for assistance.
President and Vice Presidents, Jerry and Jill Yaekel, were born and raised in Belleville. They have always been active in the community following their father’s footsteps as a member of the local rotary group as well as a member of the Chamber. Yaekel & Associates has been a great supporter of the Greater Belleville Chamber of Commerce over the years including attending and sponsoring events such as the Annual Otto Golf Classic and volunteering at the Belleville Chili Cook-off. They have also had two employees graduate from the Leadership Belleville program.
The company continues to grow their roots in Belleville with the recent purchase of their current location in the old Cedarleaf building, allowing them to expand and grow their team to 18 employees.
The Greater Belleville Chamber of Commerce and our Ambassadors are proud to honor Yaekel & Associates Insurance with this quarter’s Commitment to Community Award.
