NEW ULM - Eric Jensen, former branch manager for Wells Fargo Bank in New Ulm, has taken over ownership of American Family Insurance in New Ulm. He is replacing the previous owner, Rick Gusso.
Jensen said that he switched to American Family Insurance because it gave him the opportunity to own a business and have more face-to-face interaction with his customers.
"At the bank, I wasn't as able to be involved with my customers on a personal level," said Jensen.
Jensen said he is thrilled with his new position and looks forward to learning the industry.
"I'm loving it here. It's a great opportunity to stay in my hometown while serving my friends and neighbors," said Jensen.
