Doug Hansen is an insurance advisor at Doug Hansen & Associates in the Thiensville-Mequon area. He grew up on Washington Island and later attended UW-Milwaukee earning a bachelor’s degree before going on to obtain a Master’s in Public Administration from UW Oshkosh. His work career, for 18 years, prior to entering the insurance field was the role of addictions therapist and hospital administrator.
Doug began his insurance career in 1990 as a State Farm agent in Thiensville, WI. After 20 years with State Farm Insurance, he realized he could better serve his policyholders through the availability of various insurance companies which would not limit the customer to the offerings of a single company. So in 2012 Doug Hansen & Associates Insurance Agency was created, in Thiensville, WI.
Outside of work, Doug is involved in a variety of community associations.
- He holds a Twenty-year membership in the Mequon–Thiensville Rotary Club with a focus on “Service above Self” both locally and internationally.
- He was also instrumental in establishing a Rotary medical mission to Oliveros, Guatemala. The Guatemala Medical Program is in its twelfth year with over 40 volunteers each year leaving the US to serve the poor and underserved people in rural Oliveros, Guatemala.
- Doug was a U.S. Army Reserves officer with 26 years of military service. He retired at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.
- For over 25 years Doug has been a part of Gideon’s International, a Christian men’s ministry with the purpose of placing and distributing Bibles throughout the world.
- Doug is also a member of the Mequon-Thiensville Chamber of Commerce, the Thiensville Business Association, and the Alliance Bible Church-Mequon
Doug currently lives in Mequon with his wife Pam, of 43 years; they find their greatest enjoyment in life is spending time with their adult children and grandchildren. They also enjoy going back to Doug’s home on Washington Island to fish, spend time with family, and relax at their log cabin (which happens to have a hot tub and pretty soon a sauna)!
