About Us

We Put our Heart & Soul into our Customers & Community

Leslie Bennett

Principal, Bennett Insurance Agency

Very few small businesses celebrate their Golden Anniversary, and we feel very blessed to have accomplished this milestone. My grandfather, Lawrence Bennett, started The Bennett Agency in Conway Springs, Kansas in 1958, while he was President of the First National Bank. He continued to serve the insurance needs of rural Midwest customers for the next 38 years. In 1996, my father, Brad Bennett, purchased the Agency and has been committed to carrying on the values of unyielding customer satisfaction and client-focused solutions that his father worked so hard to instill. In 2018, I purchased the Agency and continue a legacy of three generations. Our agents & employees work passionately with our growing customer base in the central part of the United States.

 

When choosing The Bennett Insurance Agency, you have the advantage of working with experienced and knowledgeable agents who understand and truly care about the needs of our clients. We are always working towards the best interest of our customers & our community. We not only work here, we put our time any energy back into our community by serving on committees, volunteering at local events, & making donations to local causes.

 

We would like to thank every customer for their decades of support and our promise is to continue the personalized service you’ve come to expect.

My wife Shirley and I have been married over four decades and shared wonderful adventures with family, friends and business associates.

What gives you the most satisfaction about what you do at Bennett Insurance Agency?

When I came to my father’s agency, we had a typewriter, phone and calculator. Insuring our clients’ interests has always been our top priority and we now process information so quickly, professionally, and accurately.

Why is that important to you?

Being able to provide reliable service and satisfying customer needs each day is very rewarding.

What’s the story behind this picture?

This photo was taken while hiking in the Wichita Mountains in Oklahoma.  In my spare time I love camping, hiking and spending time outdoors. 

What gives you the most satisfaction about what you do at Bennett Insurance Agency?

I really like helping people feel secure with the insurance they purchase and knowing we are there to help people with everything from a small fender bender to tornado or fire completely destroying their home.

Why is that important to you?

This is important to me because I know that customers want to feel like more than just a policy number, and here at The Bennett Agency, we take time to get to know customers and care about the best interest of our customers.

I volunteer as the curator at the Conway Springs Museum and hope to revitalize the museum to enrich the history of this small town.

This photo was taken at my baby girl’s baptism in March ’21. My wife and I have been blessed with four wonderful kids, and I am so grateful for my family and friends!

What gives you the most satisfaction about what you do at Bennett Insurance Agency?

I enjoy helping others in their time of need. When our customers are handed tough situations, I want to reduce their stress and help them through it any way I can.

Why is that important to you?

If our customers are dealing with major issues, I want to take care of their insurance/claim stress so they can focus on other priorities.

What’s the story behind the picture you chose?

I’m blessed with a beautiful, caring wife and awesome kiddos.  We’re a colorful bunch that loves to laugh. I couldn’t be happier!

What gives you the most satisfaction about what you do at Bennett Insurance Agency?

I enjoy helping good people and I get my highest satisfaction when a customer knows that our agency is honest and will always have their best interests in mind.

Why is that important to you?

Insurance can be confusing and frustrating, so I try to assist our customers to understand how it works. This knowledge helps them down the road, even if they’re no longer with our agency. At the end of the day, our job is to help people; so I like teaching them how to fish.

Paula George – Agent

What’s the story behind this picture?

This is me trying to figure out what day it is. If you catch me outside work, it will probably be at a sporting event. Between my husband and three children, they do it all—volleyball, football, basketball, golf, disc golf are just the start. I love every minute of it. It’s great to be a part of a team. Getting to know other parents, watching our kids improve and encourage each other really makes it a family atmosphere.

What gives you the most satisfaction about what you do at Bennett Insurance Agency?

We work as a team to find you the best products for you and your family. That’s what I enjoy about The Bennett Agency. We take time to get to know you and what is important to you.

Why is that important to you?

I take pride in providing customers with the best coverage possible from our family of companies we represent.

Tell us something about yourself no one would have guessed?

I have an autographed basketball signed by the 1988 National Champion Kansas Jayhawks. I won the prize on the Coaches Corner show during the Big Eight tourney.
