Our History

About Stille Pierce and Pertzborn

Stille Pierce and Pertzborn was founded in 1948 by Roy E. Stille, who began his insurance career selling life and health insurance door-to door with Woodmen Accident & Life Company.  In the early 1960’s, Roy joined forces with the Schaller-Rice Agency and evolved into Schaller Rice & Stille. Through the years, smaller agencies were acquired and eventually became the Stille & Schaller Agency, gaining widespread respect in the local community.

In 1970, Roy’s son, Steve Stille, joined the agency and a year later, Roy passed. Tim Pierce became a partner in 1972 and in 1981, Mike Pertzborn followed suit, forming what is known today as Stille Pierce & Pertzborn Insurance Services. Tim passed away in 2013 and Steve retired after 46 years in 2016, making way for a new generation of partners. Tom James, a seasoned employee of SP&P, along with Mike’s two sons, Michael Pertzborn II and Tony Pertzborn, joined as partners in January of 2017. Together, these new partners bring a diverse insurance background and excitement to serve our community and our valued customers.

Over the years our agency has grown vastly, offering everything from personal insurance to commercial risk management services. Our clients are our most valuable asset and we strive to earn and keep their trust by catering to each clients’ unique set of needs. We value honesty and trust, and we strive to provide exceptional service to each of our customers by upholding these principles in everything we do. We have a knowledgeable and dedicated staff, offering the very best insurance carriers and products to serve each of our clients’ comprehensive needs.

Following in the footsteps of our predecessors, we at Stille Pierce & Pertzborn look forward to a bright future with a renewed commitment to excellence and service. We strive to be your preferred insurance provider based on strong customer relationships built with trust and integrity. Our goal is to exceed 100 years in business and fulfill a legacy started many years ago by our founder, Roy Stille, a door to door salesman.
