About Us

Our History

Valley Insurance was established in 1978 by Gordon Hard and initially located in Batavia, Illinois. We eventually relocated our offices to downtown Geneva in 1985 and moved to our current location in 1989. In 2010, Gordon Hard met Drake Kelly through mutual associates. Drake had started in the business right out of college, and was in the midst of enjoying a successful career as a direct writer. Gordon and Drake hit it off right away and became good friends. Drake admired Gordon's years of success in business, but most of all respected his devotion to the community. In 2014, Gordon offered Drake a position and Drake gladly accepted. In July of 2017, Drake became President of Valley Insurance and Gordon moved into a consulting role. Drake and Gordon are extremely excited to continue to build on the strong history of Valley Insurance. For over 39 years, Valley Insurance has provided a variety of insurance products and services, along with experienced, knowledgeable personnel, dedicated to assisting you in protecting your assets and liabilities.
Valley Insurance is committed to building close client relationships for the long term. We value the trust and confidence that we have established with our clients.
