Mark is second generation owner of Leonard Insurance. First licensed in 1978, Mark immediately began working for his father Mel, who later retired in 1997.
Mark and his wife Lynn (who also works at Leonard Insurance) raised three children. Through the years Mark was actively engaged in coaching baseball, hockey, soccer and Boy Scouts. Today Mark and Lynn are watching their kids do much of the same for their four granddaughters.
Being empty-nesters, Mark and his wife recently downsized to a condo in downtown Milwaukee where they enjoy boating and kayaking on the Milwaukee River and an occasional trip to the Boundary Waters. Mark is still playing Old Men’s hockey, golfing, and making home-brewed beer.
Mark has been active in the Kiwanis Club of North Shore past 28 years in every leadership capacity. Besides family, a notable life-changing experience has been his three mission trips to Haiti experiencing the love and acceptance of the Haitian people.
Mark has served on the Board of Directors for the Wisconsin Professional Insurance Agents Association for 6 years and served on numerous committees, also having been recognized by his peers as the “Insurance Agent of the Year” in 2012.
