CHRIS-LEEF GENERAL AGENCY, INC.
Chris Peterson grew up in the industry, spending many summers and school breaks working in his family’s insurance business. But it wasn’t until a summer job as a personal lines assistant underwriter that Peterson became set on a career in the industry. After graduating from college, he spent two years working as an associate underwriter for Nautilus Insurance Company.
In 2009, he moved to the Kansas City area, where he currently works for Chris-Leef General Agency as vice president, overseeing all business operations for the company. Since he took over daily management operations in 2013, the company has doubled in size through organic growth, product and program development, and acquisition.
Understanding how important education is to this complex industry, Peterson has earned various designations and completed the AAMGA UFO Leadership Education program. He currently serves as SVP of the Under Forty Organization board, and is chairman of the Bell & Clements Advisory Council and on the Nationwide E&S/Specialty Agent’s Advisory Board.
