Whew! How are we down to the last few days of 2016 already? We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, enjoyed some time with friends and family and were able to slow down for a few moments to enjoy this crazy, fast-paced life we are all living!
As we finish up this year and prepare for the next, we thought we’d take a look back and let you know what has been happening at Ludovissy and Associates for the last year.
2016 was a year of change for the agency. With Dave transitioning into retirement, Jon and Troy have taken on the day to day responsibilities of running the agency and all of the satellite offices. They have adjusted well, and the offices are running as smoothly as ever. Speaking of satellite offices, on October 1st of 2016 Ludovissy and Associates entered into a partnership with Tujetsch Agency in Guttenberg, IA. Mike Tujetsch and Brenda Burr are running things in Guttenberg and doing a fantastic job of adjusting to all of the changes that have been thrown at them.
2016 also brought with it a few new faces joining the ranks in the Dubuque and East Dubuque offices. Hayley Taylor and Jim Mitchel joined our Dubuque staff this year and Eric Graham can be found over in our East Dubuque office. All three are such a great addition to our staff.
At the end of November long-time staff member, Joanie Miller, retired. After over 20 years at the agency, Joanie was ready to start a new chapter of her life and all of us here wish her well in her next adventure.
With all of the changes, of course there are lots of things that remain the same. If you stop in our Bellevue office you will still see Susan’s smiling face, and at any given time you’ll find John, Jeff, Ann, Dena, Peggy and Amber holding down the fort in Dubuque. These people keep the agency running and continue to provide the customer service you have come to expect and deserve.
On that note, we all would just like to take a moment to thank you for making this year one to remember; we are excited to see what 2017 brings.
We hope all of you have had a blessed 2016 and we look forward to seeing you in 2017!
