Kane Hanson

Group Benefits Specialist
B.A. in Business Management with a concentration in Insurance. Kane is a graduate of Fargo South high where he played Varsity Basketball and won three state golf championships. He received an academic and golf Scholarship to Drake University where he was an Academic All-American and on the All-Region Team. After playing professional golf all over the world, he decided to hang up the clubs and move back to ND with his kids, to be closer to his family, and start a new chapter in his life.

Kane joins the Great North team with ownership and management experience in the insurance industry. He started off by focusing on commercial and personal lines insurance as an independent agent, but soon realized his passion for estate and business succession planning. He concentrated on that line of business until he was brought on to manage an office for a large life and Medicare company. During his time there, he learned how to recruit and train agents which was something he needed for his ultimate goal of having an ownership interest in an insurance agency.

In September of 2014, he was approached by the Corwin Ownership group to help start their own insurance agency from scratch inside their car dealerships. In the 4 years as managing partner of the agency, he helped operate six offices through a team of insurance professionals.

When the Corwin’s were approached about being acquired by Great North Insurance it was the perfect fit for Kane and members of his team. This transition provides an opportunity to continue to help the thousands of clients who already trusted them with their insurance needs. At Great North, Kane will be helping the team continue to grow the client base, while getting back to his passion of protecting businesses and families for future generations.

In Kane’s spare time he loves to go to the lake with his fiancée Corey and three kids, Briggs, Merit and Hayes. Wake surfing and being on the lake are his favorite activities, but you can also, on occasion, catch him chasing after his ball at some of the local courses. Winning the Pine-to-Palm and MN State Am are his favorite memories as an amateur golfer. Being able to win the Minnesota and ND State Open in the same summer is his most proud accomplishment as a professional golfer.
