Hi, I'm Eric Hanson, Agency Manager at Farm Bureau Financial Services in Iowa. Prior to Farm Bureau, I was an agent with another major life insurance company for seven years in Fort Dodge, IA. I joined Farm Bureau Financial Services as an agent in July 2000 in Fort Dodge.
In October 2007, I became an agency manager, and relocated to my territory in northwest/western Iowa. In July 2015, I was asked to consider and have now relocated to an agency which includes Jasper, Mahaska, Marion, Polk and Poweshiek counties. We have 30 agents in these five counties.
I enjoy the coaching and mentoring that goes along with being an agency manager. I mostly enjoy encouraging and watching agents grow and develop in their careers – often beyond what they may have imagined. I also take pride in my commitment to supporting agents in joint work and in being available to them when I’m needed.
I have been married to my wife, Jackie, for 27 years. Jackie is an RN in Orange City. We have two children: Grant who is 23 and Jade who is 20. Grant is a graduate of UNI in Cedar Falls, IA. Jade is a junior at Iowa State University in Ames, IA.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy attending sporting events and dirt track races. Service to our community, our church, and people in need have always been important to Jackie and me.
