Key Harbor Insurance was originally incorporated in 2013 by Un Denneny, and steadily grew to one of the largest insurance agencies in the local area. By mid-2017 Un decided that in order to take the Agency to the next level, she would need to take on partners to help manage the business. John Kotalik and Judy Sinclaire, owners of Northwest Insurance Brokers, LLC became the managing partners and equity owners of the Agency. Un Denneny remains on board as the Founding Partner in the new company. We still do business as “KEY HARBOR INSURANCE”... so nothing much has really changed, but by joining forces we are able to provide our clients with a wider array of insurance products and services, with a keen focus on cost savings and superior protection. We are continually looking to grow the number of insurance companies we represent in Washington and Oregon, and plan to expand into other states in the coming years!
ABOUT THE MANAGING PARTNERS
John Kotalik and Judy Sinclaire are a husband and wife team, and the Managing Partners/Owners of Key Harbor Insurance. John comes to Key Harbor Insurance as a former Farmers Insurance Agency owner as well as bringing over 25 years of experience in commercial real estate development in the senior housing industry. Judy has been a Real Estate Broker in the Puget Sound area for over 25 years, and is now focusing on the operational side of Key Harbor Insurance. Both John and Judy come to Key Harbor Insurance with abundant enthusiasm for growing the business, and serving its existing clients! They truly value all of Key Harbor Insurance's wonderful customers and the many different ancestries' which they represent: Korean, Chinese, Thai, Cambodian, Japanese, Vietnamese, as well as the historical legacy of European ancestry and Native Americans. Our customers make us the "U.N." of insurance agencies!
ABOUT THE FOUNDING PARTNER
Un Denneny is the Founder of Key Harbor Insurance, and continues to play an important role at the Agency. Un is a Korean immigrant who came to the US in 1988, and shortly thereafter proudly became an American citizen. In 1999, Un began her carrier as a Farmers Insurance Agent, and very quickly became one of the top selling agents in the Northwest. In just a few years, she became an expert in both personal and business lines of insurance. In 2011, Un founded an independent insurance agency, which incorporated as Key Harbor Insurance in 2013. Under her leadership, Key Harbor grew into a large regional agency, with 13 producer/agents and more than 40 insurance company appointments. Although she sold her equity stake in the company, she remains at Key Harbor Insurance as a valued consultant, advisor, agent/producer, and most of all, partner! Un, John, and Judy work together as a team (and good friends!) and plan to take Key Harbor Insurance to the next level of excellence in the insurance industry!
