Jill Gray: Office Manager/Agent
I am a Wisconsin native, born in Marinette, WI. I moved to the Green Bay area in 1996. I entered the insurance field in 2006, working behind the scenes for a national insurance carrier. In 2013, I decided to pursue my insurance license. I take pride in educating my members about their insurance coverage and find it most rewarding to see the transformation from confusion to understanding the murky world of insurance.
Three generations of the Lenz family have found their niche serving the health insurance needs of individuals and businesses owners. Owner Jim Lenz has been an agent with G.H. Lenz and Associates since 1999, joining his father, Gordon, who founded the company in 1963 and nurtured it into an industry leader in Northeast Wisconsin. Gordon’s father, Harvey, was the first Lenz to build a career in insurance, as an insurance representative for Time Insurance.
For over 55 years, G.H. Lenz and Associates has provided individual and group employee benefits, with today’s focus being health, life, dental, vision, short-term disability, long-term disability and Medicare.
G.H. Lenz & Associates has always called the community of Howard, Wisconsin, its home, from the upstairs office in Gordon Lenz’s home to the current office on Velp Avenue.
As he was growing up, Jim saw clients come and go from their home in Howard, and he saw his father’s passion for helping people. Jim describes his dad as ethical, kind, and trustworthy—the same qualities Jim displays today as he provides group employee benefits and individual and family insurance plans to a wide range of clients.
Community-minded his whole life, Gordon was a founding member of the Howard Suamico Business Professional Association. Each year, the Gordon Lenz Award is presented to a member the organization who goes above and beyond, like Gordon did during his lifetime. Gordon was actively involved in a variety of community organizations and diligently served insurance clients until his passing in 2012.
The conference room of the Velp Avenue office is plastered with awards and appreciation certificates Gordon and Jim have received over the years. They serve as a testament to the Lenz family’s commitment to their clients and their community.
The insurance industry is ever-changing, particularly since the introduction of the health insurance marketplace following the adoption of the Affordable Care Act in 2010. Jim and his staff are committed to providing clients with the most up-to-date information, competitive quotes, and service after the sale as they help with coverage questions and claims. Call G.H. Lenz and Associates today, 920-434-1609, or visit our office at 11880 Velp Ave Suite B, Green Bay, Wisconsin.
