Minnesota’s Kraus-Anderson Insurance names VP

Burnsville, Minnesota-based Kraus-Anderson Insurance has promoted Jon Diessner to vice president of operations. He will oversee the agency’s property/casualty, employee benefits and surety operations.

Under the management of Jon’s father, President/COO Dennis Diessner, Kraus-Anderson Insurance has experienced significant growth in its insurance business as well as its risk-consulting operation, Kraus-Anderson Risk Innovation.

Mindful of the industry trend toward consolidation by national brokers, Kraus-Anderson Insurance’s succession planning initiatives, coupled with its own strategic acquisitions in recent years, are indicative of the agency’s long-term investment strategy and stewardship as one of the Midwest’s premiere, privately held insurance agencies.

Jon Diessner began his career with Kraus-Anderson Realty in 2009 as an assistant property manager. In 2011, he moved to KA Insurance as a property/casualty producer, where he managed new business development and client relationship management. In 2017, Diessner was promoted to director of operations, managing the agency’s strategic planning, agency administration and project management.
