Meet The “A” Team!

Client Centered

What is the “A” team?  It is a team of hard-working, down-to-earth, family-oriented men and women who will do whatever it takes to help the people of Albert Lea and the surrounding communities protect what is the most important to them.  

The “A” Team is also known as the staff at Americana Insurance Group, and “as an agent and agency co- owner of Americana, I am proud to have these individuals on my team,” says Tom Sorenson!  When asked what they enjoy the most about working at Americana, each one of the staff members said that it was the relationships they have with their customers.  

Here are some more details about who the staff members are and what they love about their jobs:
