Kip Keller is a Member of Tolman & Wiker Insurance Services, LLC. He is responsible for managing the Bond Department, acting as chief liaison between external surety companies and our valued clients. Kip specializes in developing strong client relationships, with a keen focus on the Construction and Manufacturing industries. Kip’s expertise in coverage and contract review is highly sought after; his considerable experience allows him to accurately assess current coverage, and spot problem areas before the need arises. After scrutinizing your existing contracts, he will make recommendations to improve your coverage and assist you in understanding what is or isn’t covered under your existing policies. In addition, Kip has developed his own proprietary Certificate & Risk Management Training programs, and regularly conducts training courses for clients and their employees.
Before joining Tolman & Wiker Insurance Services in 2002, Kip previously held the role of Underwriter, Branch Manager, Marketing Director, and Claims Manager at Lou Jones & Associates. His insurance career began in 1989, when he met the owner of Lou Jones by chance thru a family friend. Mr. Shaffer was so impressed with Kip’s work ethic that he offered him a job on the spot! That same unstoppable work ethic, in combination with his quick wit and quirky sense of humor is what makes Kip the “go-to-guy” for clients and coworkers alike.
