Long time member, Sentry Insurance has recently strengthened the Farm Equipment Manufacturers Association’s endorsed insurance program with newly appointed Underwriting Executives Matt Beigel and Andrew Giles. In their new roles, these experienced underwriters will be in a position to provide great service to your local insurance broker/agents as well as a direct contact for members with questions regarding current coverage and quotes for members looking to Sentry for the first time.
