Conzemius new American Family agent in Philip

Boyd Conzemius of Pierre is the new American Family Insurance agent for the Philip area.

Conzemius has known Cathy Knight, Ray Hanson and Ramsey Kendall, the three previous agents. He is familiar with the Philip area and has 25 years experience with American Family. The Philip office will be open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and will continue to be operated by Margaret Pfeifer, who is a fully licensed staff member.

Having started business in Rapid City, Conzemius has been based out of Pierre since 1983. He will be commuting to Philip on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with other days open if needed. Conzemius said, “Preparations have already made for some long days, but I’m an early morning person and the commute is nice. It only takes me a half hour to get here.” He smiled at the joke concerning the time zone change.

Still reviewing the files, Conzemius said, “There is a lot of opportunity for business and growth in the area. I have experience with farmers and ranchers. There is a lot that can be done and updated.” He continued, “I will be getting out to make personal contact with all the clients, and I plan on being involved with the Prairie Expo. I’m looking forward to meeting people. I really like the Philip community.”

“My main hobby is golf. I have played the Lake Waggoner Course a lot and love it,” Conzemius grinned, “I’m just a hacker, but my wife and I love to play golf.”

Pam Conzemius is an executive assistant with the School Administrators of South Dakota in Pierre. She has had professional contact with the Haakon School District and knows Marcia Jackson. The Conzemius couple have two married children and two grandchildren.
