Compass welcomes Maher
The Compass Insurance Partners Fairbury location has a new name with a familiar face working as an insurance producer.
Cody Maher previously served as a funeral director for 17 years before moving to Fairbury and accepting the insurance position.
“We had the opportunity to move here to Fairbury back in March and start here with Compass,” Maher said.
Maher is excited to help individuals with their insurance needs – including personal lines, home, auto, commercial and farm.
“I’ve been working with people to listen to what they need insured and help them get to the point where they are comfortable.”
Maher’s transition into the industry has been a smooth one as he believes clients should be able to go about their business not having to worry about insurance since that is his job. He feels Compass has a great group of employees with plenty of knowledge and years of experience.
Everyone has been very supportive to help Maher grow as an agent. He sees plenty of familiar faces since he worked with many people in his previous career.
“I still get that chance to see the community and those faces I was pretty familiar with,” said Maher.
Born and raised in the Roanoke and Eureka areas, Maher has quite a few contacts along the Route 24 corridor.
Compass has locations in the Central Illinois towns of Bloomington, Cissna Park, Colfax, Fairbury, Gibson City, Le Roy, Lexington, Paxton, Peotone and Watseka. More information can be found at the website: www.givingdirection.com, which has been newly designed.
