Neis Insurance Agency has experienced tremendous growth, both locally and nationally. Since 1990, the agency has gone from handling $4 million in business to $25 million. Despite our rapid growth, we still pride ourselves on keeping strong personal relationships with our clientele. Over the past ten years, Neis has retained 93% of our clients, all while expanding in the insurance policy sectors.

Although we are focused on Chicagoland clients, Neis is an independent agency that also offers insurance services on a national and global level. Originally founded in 1962 with an emphasis on banks throughout Northern Illinois, we were reincorporated in 1980 to operate in property, casualty, life, and health insurance. Current principal, Tom Neis, took the helm during this transition period. Since then, Tom and his wife, Marilyn, have incorporated several other agencies under the Neis Insurance umbrella.


Giving Back to IWU
As their alma mater, Illinois Wesleyan has been cherished and supported by the Neises for decades.

“The Neises have given back more than just their time. They have been consistent donors to IWU for a half century, via the Wesleyan Fund, several different scholarships, Council for IWU Women, program support, a lead gift to benefit IWU’s soccer teams and establish Neis Field, as well as a planned estate gift.

Illinois Wesleyan has meant many things to the Neises. It’s been a place for family. A place for friends. A place to connect with others. A place to reconnect. And reconnecting with friends and classmates is what Tom is most looking forward to when he returns to campus this fall for his 50-year reunion.”
