Ralph Weiner, the beloved founder, and namesake of our agency began his own business in 1951, selling door to door, with the assistance of his wife Rosalie and sister-in-law Sandy. We are proud to say that many of his first clients are still with our agency through many generations.
Ralph’s work ethic was second to none and his complete, and full-time commitment to his clients was truly unparalleled. These traditions have been passed on and stayed with the agency in our absolute dedication to personalized service. Ralph was instrumental in establishing the Illinois State Guaranty Fund, protecting businesses and consumers against insolvency by insurance companies in Illinois. From the early 1950s until his passing in 2005, he built Ralph Weiner & Associates into the major, well-recognized agency it is today and built a legacy of “always getting the job done”. He is missed each and every day and will never be forgotten.
