Project Description



Russ Sporer has been active in the Iowa insurance industry for over 40 years. In that time he has been involved in many facets of the discipline: instructor, agent, owner, principal, producer, expert witness, E&O auditor and consultant. He is an expert in not only property and casualty insurance products, but life and health products as well.

Russ has been an agency owner and principal of the NOEL Insurance Agency, Inc., in Ottumwa, Ia. As an independent agent he has served as a board member and president of the Ottumwa Independent Agents Association and the Independent Insurance Agents of Iowa. He has served on committees and taskforces of the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America and upon two occasions was selected as Iowa’s Agent of the Year.

Russ has donated his time, talents and financial assistance to numerous veterans affairs efforts for many years. He continues to be a driver for disabled veterans, and recently led a fundraising campaign for the Veteran’s Memorial Flag project erected at Bridge View Center in his home community. He has served as president and board member of the Ottumwa Regional Health Center, provided leadership to the Indian Hills Community College Foundation and has been active in Ottumwa city government and on the board of directors for the Partners in Progress and Heartland Humane Society.

Russ has earned the respect of many for his insurance abilities as an expert witness, his specialized knowledge in the public entity arena and health insurance solutions.

Russ represents those attributes that insurance clients expect in their agent: knowledgeable, professional, empathetic, sincere and genuine. He has taken those same characteristics to all levels of our industry, local, state and national.
