William (Bill) Petersen – Owner and Producer
I graduated from University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire with a degree in Economics. I started in the insurance business in 1970 in Madison, WI. The first eighteen years in Green Bay I worked for one company who specialized in commercial insurance products. Since then, I have started my own independent agency and continue to own it today. I still enjoy the challenges of the industry and working with clients. We represent some of the best carriers in the business for both commercial and personal lines.
Debbie Petersen – Office Manager/Producer
I joined American Advantage Insurance in April 2002 as a licensed property and casualty customer service representative. Since then, I’ve added the duties of bookkeeper as well as handling other office duties. Previously, I worked for an insurance company called American Hardware Mutual based out of Minneapolis, MN that specialized in commercial insurance – which gave me a great background for my current position.

I have received an Associates degree in Finance from NWTC and a double major in Business and Marketing from Lakeland College. I have been a licensed property and casualty agent for four years and enjoy all aspects of personal lines insurance. The most enjoyable part of my job is working and getting to know my clients and informing them about what insurance is really all about. Getting to know and help others is my main focal point and I look forward to hearing from you in the future.
Renee Katers – Customer Service Representative
I am a Commercial and Personal Lines Servicing Licensed Agent with a Certified Insurance Service Representative Designation. I have enjoyed servicing and selling Property & Casualty Insurance for over 15 years. I enjoy my job and all of its aspects very much, but there are 2 things that fulfill me the most in my position. One is to assist the Agents in my office to better sell a competitively priced and comprehensive product; the other is to help our Customer feel confident in what they have been sold by our agency, as well as offering them the best service available. I am local grown, receiving a degree from the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay. My husband and I live in Bellevue, WI with our 3 beautiful and active sons that keep us very busy as they are involved in many school and sporting activities.
Mary Lade – Producer/Owner – Oconto
I am a licensed property and casualty agent with American Advantage Insurance. I started the Oconto branch in 2000 after spending several years in the title insurance business. Although the property/casualty insurance industry poses different challenges, it is equally rewarding. I am a member of the Oconto Chamber of Commerce and a lifelong resident of Oconto.
Tom Roehrig – Producer/Owner – Hilbert
I joined the American Advantage Insurance Group in January 2013 as a licensed property/casualty and life/health producer and agency owner. I purchased the “Roehrig Insurance Agency” in Hilbert from my father in 1983, and he originally started the agency in 1953. The decision to join American Advantage was driven by their accessibility to some of the finest insurance companies in the area, an independent insurance agent’s dream. Now I feel I can offer competitive quotes and services comparable to those from the big agencies and yet maintain the small-town friendliness of knowing your name when you walk through our door. Sixty years have past since Dad sold his first policies and remarkably; two original policyholders are still with us. I thoroughly enjoy maintaining my current accounts and I’m excited about this new opportunity to grow my agency.
