PJC Insurance Agency was established fifty years ago, with a clear focus on insuring the transportation industry, leading to its long time reputation as one of the largest independent
trucking insurance agencies in the Midwest. In 2001, Raylene Appleby joined the Agency as President and part owner. With her background in bank risk management and employee benefits, PJC began expanding departments and services to include Commercial Business, Life and Health, Personal Lines, Loss control and Risk Management, while continuing to be an industry leader in Transportation.
In 2008, Raylene and Lance Smith became partners and co-owners. The Transportation Department lead by Lance Smith, offers products and services in 17 states.
In September, 2016, PJC Insurance became a proud member of the Sunstar Insurance Group. Some things never change, and with all the growth and excitement, PJC’s greatest assets remain its core values of loyal customers, long-term employees and established insurance company relationships.
