Your Back Office; Our Team

Kenneth Sapon,

President, CLU, CLTC, LUTCF, R.Ph. 

I joined my father at Champion Agency in 1979. It fascinated me how little agents knew about the products they sold. This inspired me to bring more transparency to the industry. For over 40 years, I’ve dedicated myself to educating agents about how products work, so they can find the best tax reduction strategies for their clients.

Samuel Sapon,

Internal Wholesaler

I have long been fascinated by finding unconventional solutions to everyday problems. I seek opportunities to question the status quo. This has started me on the path to a fulfilling career. It’s been seven short years since I graduated from college, but have been a part of many thrilling projects that have altered people’s lives for the better. These projects have challenged me to develop the link between theory and execution. I have help start coffee shops and launched million-dollar revenue streams for companies. Champion Agency is the next chapter in my journey of developing robust client focus platforms. I am looking forward to discovering and developing new solutions that will not only make your life as an agent easier, but will also increase your client’s satisfaction.

Brook Larson,

Case Manager

As a new member of the team I am learning every day how to better streamline and simplify New Business procedures at Champion Agency. I specialize in corresponding with our agents, obtaining and processing information to help producers turn a client with a financial need into a policyholder. I love to learn new things and I’m so happy to be working with both our internal and external partners.

Samantha Neppel,

Case Manager

 I am very happy and excited to be a new member of the Champion Team. I am new to the life insurance field and come from commercial property and casualty insurance.  I look forward to assisting and supporting our agents with the initial process and submitting new business applications. It is my goal to process information accurately and as quickly as possible to avoid delays for clients. I am a quick learner and very excited to learn new things and build relationships with our partners.  

Betsy Ripp,

Retired – On Call Case Manager

I am motivated by the desire to help people. It is why I chose to become an RN, it is why a friend suggested that I’d be a great underwriter. 27 years later, I’ve not lost that passion. People need protection, and there are many great products available. It is my job to help you insure your clients by obtaining as much detail about them as possible.
