Vizance, founded in 1978 and based in Hartland, is a privately-held independent agency offering a broad portfolio of insurance, risk management, employee benefits and financial service solutions for businesses and individuals. The agency has been named to the “Future 50” list three times, earning the “Master Mettle” recognition.

Founded in 1960, Sparks Insurance specializes in home, auto, life, health, and business insurance. Sparks Insurance will continue to operate under that name from its office location in Kenosha. The agency serves Kenosha, Racine, and Northern Illinois. Sparks Insurance President Lon Knoedler and Secretary/Treasurer Bonnie Knoedler, who have been the principals of the agency, will continue with the organization.

“We found a partner that meshes seamlessly with our philosophies, culture, and way of doing business. It’s a win-win-win for our staff, our clients, and our company partners,” said Lon Knoedler.

Sparks Insurance will leverage the significant resources at Vizance to bring additional services such as safety, claims, risk management, and compliance services to its business clients.
