About Drehm Insurance

After working together for many years and also as members of the same church, it just made sense to make it official! In 2021, Brian & Laurie Rehm and Melissa Draeger formed Drehm Insurance Agency, LLC to better serve their clients and agents. Where does the name Drehm come from? Draeger + Rehm = Drehm! While Brian, Laurie and Melissa are the agency owners and generally focus on the State of Wisconsin, they also have contracted agents that service clients in Wisconsin, Texas, Arizona, Illinois and Florida.
