Meet Our President
Eileen Koppinger, CIC
After 18 years working for two of the largest publicly traded commercial insurance brokers in the nation – HRH/Willis – I established Koppinger & Associates in 2011. I felt that clients wanted more personalized solutions and real results.
Personally, I believe there is nothing better than meeting a business owner face-to-face. The stories my clients share allow me a glimpse into their business that cannot be found any other way. My team and I make a point to learn the ins-and-outs of our clients’ daily challenges through conversations, tours of their operations, and deep review of their day-to-day operations and processes.
These meetings give me a window into my clients’ world and an opportunity to really understand what makes their company tick.
I consider myself an advisor. I consult with clients daily to help them find solutions to their challenges. My natural inclination is to help people. I do this through strategy, communication, and education. Whatever the challenge is, we will find a way to overcome it!
I received my Certified Insurance Counselors Designation in 1998. In 2018 I was recognized for having that designation for 20 years. I am also a graduate of Central Michigan University.
CIC accreditation is earned from The National Alliance for Insurance Education and Research. The National Alliance is recognized across the nation as one of the best advanced educational programs for insurance and risk management professionals.

Ilene Marshall, CIC, CISR
Commercial Lines Client Manager
I worked alongside Eileen Koppinger for 18 years at HRH/Willis. I am passionate about offering my clients real results – not just a list of services. That’s why I joined Koppinger & Associates.
I am dedicated to you, my client. I enjoy assisting with special projects, such as written contracts, subcontractor agreements, business expansions, surety lines and performance bonding, pollution and environmental risks, and maritime workers compensation.
My ultimate goal is to simplify the complex, and sometimes frustrating, world of insurance for all of our clients, no matter what industry you are in. You can count on my dedication, knowledge, and extensive experience in business insurance, including P&C, Group Benefits and HR.
I achieved 20 years as a Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) in 2020.
Employee Benefits Client Manager
At Koppinger & Associates, I feel I can truly be there for my clients on an individual basis.
I help clients solve human resource issues and answer questions about benefit plan compliance, the Affordable Care Act/Health Care Reform (ACA/HCR), and claims problems. For each client, I approach the issue in a personal way, building a solution around their needs and goals. I am enthusiastic about educating my clients so that they feel empowered to choose wise solutions.
My experience in Human Resources with the Public School Sector paired with 10 years as an Employee Benefits Client Manager with HRH/Willis allows me to be your “go to” resource for all things HR and Benefits.
I have a bachelor of business administration degree from Walsh College with a focus in human resources management.
Marketing and Brand Manager
I am excited to be back in the insurance industry after a 20 year career in the industrial automation field.
I collaborate with Eileen to implement various client programs, marketing platforms and campaigns. My goal is to provide clients with solutions to the everyday challenges of running a business, whether it be property and casualty or employee benefits related.
I enjoy researching and composing our K&A Latest Updates and website blog. These communications provide guidance and helpful resources to clients assisting them to navigate the world of risk exposure, regulation, or employee benefits.
My experience in business management and HR are an asset when providing back up support for Ilene and Annette.
I am a graduate of Concordia University, majoring in Human Resource Administration.
Assistant Client Manager
Licensed in Property & Casualty and Life & Health, I have spent 15 years in the insurance industry focusing on the Private Client Sector.
My commitment to personal service and desire for excellence make me a great fit as support staff for the Koppinger & Associates team. By staying current on issues and educating our clients, we assist them in conquering both the new and ongoing challenges of managing their business.
I’m excited to learn more about Commercial Lines and expand my knowledge base by pursuing my Certified Insurance Counselor designation. My Bachelors in Business Administration degree is from Walsh College where I majored in Finance.
