At this point he opened the Nationwide office in O’Fallon and began marketing business, personal, life and retirement planning insurance products throughout the state of Missouri. His interest and desire to expand our independent agency operation led to his acquisition of several smaller agencies throughout Missouri. In his role as agency principal (owner) of Mid America Specialty Markets he is tasked with the responsibilities of strategic agency planning, establishing agency growth targets, working with our commercial and personal insurance departments on expansion plans and overseeing general agency operations from a upper management level.

Vicki Graning – Director of Operations. Vicki is a graduate of Bryant & Stratton Business Institute and began her insurance career in 2001 after holding various business positions in private industry. Her motivation to help clients is due to her loyal and compassionate nature as well as when she was a newlywed, she lost the diamond out of her engagement ring. Like most people she went to see her insurance agent only to discover that her ring was not scheduled on the insurance policy so there was no coverage for her lost diamond! A hard lesson learned but one that she remembers today and applies when dealing with our agency clients. She prides herself on listening to clients and educating them on the best coverage to fit the unique needs of their family. In 2007, due to a career change, they moved into the O’Fallon MO area from out of state. Once the family was settled, she sought out employment with Nationwide Insurance since it was a company she knew, trusted and had worked with before her move to Missouri. She discovered there was only one Nationwide office in the entire St. Louis area. (Nationwide had just ventured into Missouri only a few years earlier.) That’s how she met Matt Estal. Matt had established the office and had just relocated it to a new store front location. Since then she has been instrumental in assisting Matt and the agency as it continues to grow through hiring new agents, obtaining appointments with new carriers, mergers and acquisitions to the now 11 local offices and counting! As you can imagine, Vicki has held many positions in our agency which has allowed her to become knowledgeable in all aspects of the daily agency operations. Vicki is also a member of Nationwide’s Agency Operations Forum. She is a key member of our agency management team. Although she is a licensed insurance agent, her primary duties have evolved into working closely with our owners on setting and implementing agency procedures, managing our staff, human resources and all other aspects of running an independent insurance agency.
Jennifer Noles – Administrative Support / CSR. Jennifer has worked at the O’Fallon office since 2013. Her primary duties are that of a support role for our agency administration staff. She provides help to our staff by directing incoming phone calls, filing and client data entry. She assists in the maintenance and integrity of our agency management system. Jennifer maintains agency contact information for all local offices. She works closely with our agency management on special agency projects as directed. Jennifer spends her spare time with her family and traveling. She has held leadership positions in local social organizations.
Elizabeth Heyen – Commercial Customer Service Representative (CSR). Elizabeth received her degree in Agribusiness and Horticulture from Illinois State University, Bloomington IL, in 2017. While in college she was an active member of the CFFA, Horticulture Club and Deaf Redbirds Association. She is a member of the FFA Alumni, an active member of her church and a member of the Illinois Farm Bureau. In 2017 Elizabeth earned her property and casualty insurance license. She is currently working towards earning her CPCU, Chartered Property and Casualty Underwriter, designation as conferred by The Institutes.
