About Todd Thams
I am an active Insurance Broker and Owner of Thams Agency located in beautiful Western Iowa. I believe in Midwestern values, but also believe in using the best technology and resources to help our clients.
In 2012 my father sold me the family business. I had been in overdrive the for last 10 years growing my business and family and now things are really starting to get exciting. In 2013 I was able to acquire another office in Avoca, IA and today we have more companies and opportunities than ever before. Over the past decade I have implemented the latest technology and resources to be ultra-responsive to our clients. 2014 promises to be a great exciting year with all of the opportunities on the horizon.
I have been married since 2001 to my wife Emily and together we have three amazing daughters who keep us busy in dance, gymnastics, basketball, swimming, cross country, band and church activities. When we are not doing those things I try to play some golf and occasionally a little bicycle riding.
I’m active in the Independent Agents of Iowa and serve on the governmental affairs committee. I’m active with the National Association of Health Underwriters and currently serve as an At Large Member for the Iowa Association. I’m a Rotarian and serve(d) on many boards in this community.
I always enjoy meeting to new people and tackling new challenges.

Our clients say it best….
They have helped reduce my payments with discounts like homeowner, safe driving, multi car, etc. Their rates are better then the old insurance company I had, they just kept raising rates although I had never had an accident (and they didn’t have discounts either). When I first came in to to talk to Todd and ask about their rates, they were 50 % lower then what I was paying. Now they are even lower due to discounts.
Thams Agency has an honest, and straight forward approach to dealing with customers. They work hard to find the best insurance coverages and prices for the customer, while giving guidance and reasoning for customers to make the most informed decision possible.
You served my folks well and I have found no reason to switch elsewhere. Your company seems rooted in Denison and an asset to the community, which is always an important part of being in business in any community.

The agents at Thams make you feel like you are part of a family. They are extremely personable and the level of communication exceeds any company I have had experience with.
Client since 2004
We feel that we have professionals serving our every need at the Thams Agency whether it be house, auto, or health. One stop takes care of all of our insurance needs, and we know it’s done right. P.S. Your offices are lovely. Good move on your part to remodel and maintain the historical attributes of the building while still making it modern.
After switching to Thams, I feel like I am getting as good, maybe even slightly better property insurance coverage for a whole lot less money. As long as the premium does not take any significant jumps in the next few years then I believe this was a great switch to Thams. Very friendly staff. I feel like I should have gone to see them many years ago.
