Tonka Insurance Agency, Inc., Gets First Ever Media Coverage

SPRING PARK — Tonka Insurance Agency Inc. opened last month in Spring Park and will serve the west metro and Lake Minnetonka areas.

Tanner Emery, owner and president of Tonka Insurance Agency Inc., got into the insurance industry about five years ago as an intern with a life insurance company as a financial representative and eventually as a sales representative. All along, he knew he wanted to start his own business.

Emery took a leap and started his own company as an indepedent agent for auto, home, life, commercial, health and more. He said he can bring a personal touch to the insurance industry, much like his family members brought to other fields.

His grandfather owned a tree-service company for many years before his uncle took it over. Another grandfather owned the dry cleaner in Navarre for 32 years. For 20 years, his father has owned his own landscaping company.

They advised him long ago to start his own business. He has a bachelor’s degree in finance.

“I have always looked up to my grandpa and father because they have instilled into my what hard work looks like and where hard work can get you in life,” Emery said.

Tonka Insurance Agency is at 4154 Shoreline Drive, Suite 240.

“I want everyone to know that I am just here to help, and I want to make sure individuals and families are covered properly. I take my job seriously, and I know I can serve a big purpose in the community,” Emery said.
