Our Company

Our Company Story

On April 1st, 1978 Northbrook Insurance Associates opened their doors for business.  After working together at a different agency, Robert Butzke and Allen Christ decided they needed a change and discussed starting their own.  After a lot of discussion, they moved forward with their plan and gave notice to their current employer.  After a few days, they arrived to work one morning to find the locks had been changed.  While potential being the center of a rough April fool’s day joke, they moved forward with their plan and started Northbrook Insurance.  With that “can-do” attitude, they hit the ground running and never looked back.  It’s in those beginnings that still define our company today.

As the agency grew, so did their work force by bringing on associates from the area to help them with their rapid growth.  Some of which are still involved with the agency today, day in and day out.  Working with mostly all local Midwest insurance companies Northbrook was, and still is, able to keep a lot of the original values as part of our company.
