History

historypageimageIn 1949, Ralph McClone founded McClone to supplement his teaching and coaching career. After years of success and expansion in the Fox Valley, Ralph’s son, Mike, purchased the company in 1987 and was then joined by his brothers Dan, Pat and Brian. The second generation continued to focus on long-lasting strategic partnerships, which has allowed McClone to become one of the largest independent agencies in Wisconsin. Today, with the third generation Mike’s sons, Ryan and Dustin, along with son-in-law Erik Brenn, and Dan’s son, Sam involved in the business, McClone remains deeply rooted in family and committed to the communities and partners they serve. With offices throughout Wisconsin, they specialize in getting to know their clients and their businesses.
