About Van Gundy Insurance Bloomington IL

About Us

LanderVan Gundy Agency was founded in 1946 by Lander Van Gundy. With his roots in the harness racing industry, Van Gundy established a nationwide insurance network for insuring harness horses, stables, and racetracks. During his 1946-1968 tenure, Lander served as both President and Chairman of the Board. As the years progressed, Van Gundy Agency grew to be one of the larger independent commercial and personal lines agencies in Central Illinois.



The foundation for the great agency that exists today was laid by past generations of community leaders and now retired partners:
