Country Financial Agency Manager Michael Weber of Metamora ranked as the No. 1 agency manager in the Illinois Region in 2011.

 This is the first time Weber has earned the No. 1 ranking at Country as a Regional Champion.  

Country annually recognizes a regional champion agency manager from each of the three Country regions. Country has more than 2,000 financial representatives serving clients in 14 states.

Weber also earned a position on the organization’s distinguished All American team. Weber is among a group of more than 300 top Country financial representatives and agency managers who qualified as All American award recipients.  He has been named an All American 35 times.

All American is given each year by Country to financial representatives and agency managers who have excelled in identifying insurance products and financial solutions that fit the needs of their clients.  An agency manager or financial representative must meet an exceptional level of insurance production and the policies sold must remain in force for established periods of time.  This encourages quality sales and service to clients.

 In an effort to better serve his clients, Weber furthered his insurance education and completed the course work necessary to become a Certified Financial Planner.  He was inducted into the Country Hall of Fame in 2000.

 Weber has served clients in the Peoria area since 1992.  He and his wife, Becky, have four children:  John, Sarah, Anne Marie and Mary Catherine and a granddaughter, Charlotte.
