HENRY SCHERER
CEO

Cell: (913) 370-0142
henryscherer@ag-risk-solutions.com

Henry was born and raised on a family farm in Northeast Kansas. Henry became actively engaged in farming in 1976. In 1981 he was approached with the opportunity to get into the Crop Insurance business. Quickly seeing the great challenge that he and other producers were facing he decided to take that opportunity. Henry was an independent agent from 1981 until 2006 when he became a part owner of the agency he had been contracting with. In 2010 Henry and his business partner decided to divide that agency and he formed Ag Risk Solutions with five of the agents from that team. Henry is still actively engaged in farming around 750 acres in the Atchison area.
