Today marks the 45th anniversary of Al Boenker Insurance! To celebrate this incredible milestone, we look back on the challenges, achievements, and growth we've experienced during this journey and acknowledge how grateful we are to be a part of it all.

Al Boenker started his first agency in 1972 and became an independent agent eight years later. Today, Al Boenker Insurance Agency is in the top one percent of independent insurance agencies in the U.S. In 2003, Boenker founded Empower MGA, which produces $70-80 million in Texas annually.

Early in his career, Al Boenker developed a passion for selling and committed his life to serving others by helping millions of families with their auto, home and health insurance coverage. He has carried out this mission by representing the best insurance companies in Texas and providing customers with the tools, service and options to help them save money on their insurance needs. Unlike the other big insurance companies, our customers have never been just another face in the crowd. Al Boenker Insurance has always been committed to going above and beyond to ensure that our customers are satisfied with their rates and ensuring that they can save more at renewal.

When Al Boenker started the Al Boenker Insurance Agency, he had a vision to do things differently. Being the oldest of five children, Al was raised in a Christian household and he has remained strong in his faith ever since. To this day, Al has instilled these Christian values into his company and has operated under the notion to serve those in need. Not only have we served others through insurance, but we also serve our community as well by giving back. Thanks to our various social outreach initiatives, Al Boenker Insurance has put a stamp on addressing our community's needs by enriching social good. This is all made possible through our Pay It Forward events, where once a month we take a day out of our busy schedule to give back by picking up the tab at a local restaurant. These events also give us the privilege of interacting and connecting to our customers face to face, so that we can show our gratitude for their loyalty and patronage.

The Al Boenker Insurance Agency has also received numerous awards and accolades throughout its 45-year run, including the Paige Eliand Award, which is presented to the person whose political involvement has most benefited independent insurance agents. The award is named after former IIAT member Paige Eiland, a tireless supporter of IIAT's political action program, IMPACT, and a respected voice for independent agents. He was recognized for helping the industry with his dedication to influencing legislative direction that is favorable to independent insurance agents.

Today, our future burns brighter than we could've ever imagined. The world has changed a lot the past 45 years and so has our company. Thanks to the rapid growth in technology and personnel, we're now equipped with the resources and potential to make an even greater impact than ever before. All of us at this company feel a deep responsibility to make the most of our time here and serve all of you the best that we can.

As Al Boenker Insurance celebrates 45 years of business, we would like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt appreciation to our employees old and new for their contributions and undying dedication to this company. We would also like to extend our thanks to our amazing customers for their loyal support throughout the years. It has been our pleasure to assist all of your insurance needs and we hope to serve you for many years to come.
