About CD Rigdon & Associates

CD Rigdon and Associates was created in February 2006 as a retail property and casualty insurance agency in the western suburbs of the Chicago metro area. Chris Rigdon, the founder, previously had been employed in a brokerage capacity at a large national insurance agency for several years. The primary business objective is to develop a significant retail insurance operation independent of any affiliated brokers or agencies.

From the beginning the agency was molded on Rigdon’s personal belief that highly charged sales efforts coupled with a strong commitment to provide a high level of customer service would be a successful dynamic for further growth and new business.

In June of 2009 Mr. Rigdon’s father, Doug Rigdon joined the business to assist in the growth of new business through program opportunities. Rigdon Senior has had 40+ years of property and casualty insurance experience in the ownership and development of two independent agencies. Much of that previous success was derived from the specialization in many niche classes of business. It is the joint belief of both principals that future new business will be achieved more rapidly and maintained more consistency by focusing on specialized classes of business that by and large may be underserved by the independent insurance agency system.
