Denise Wike has been an executive for many years. Her career started with a major insurance carrier in 1973 and she has been building on her skills and reputation since. She has worked in the insurance industry for many years.
Denise studied for her Bachelors in Business Management at SUNY Farmingdale, NY and later at University of Phoenix in Pasadena, CA. In addition, she studied Business Administration at the Hubbard College of Administration International in Los Angeles, CA, becoming certified as a WISE® business consultant. This training gives her incredible insight to assist in providing the best possible coverage for businesses. She is also licensed as a Property and Casualty insurance agent for Florida as well as an agent for Life and Health. She is a winner of the prestigious Model of Admin Know-How Award. She was also featured on the cover of Prosperity Magazine as a successful entrepreneur.
In 2003, planning a move from California to Florida, Ms. Wike saw a need for her special blend of experience in the Clearwater area when she was personally shopping for insurance. Upon arriving in Florida she promptly obtained her insurance agent’s license and opened her own agency despite a volatile insurance market at the time due to the volume of hurricanes and sinkhole claims in the area. She has been very successful and has been expanding her business since.
Currently Ms. Wike resides in Clearwater, FL with her husband Steve and son Kalvin and is the owner of Wike Insurance Services, serves as a board member of a technology and software design company, as well as a successful business consultant. She also volunteers for her church and community.
Kalvin began his insurance career at Wike Insurance Services in March of 2015 in customer service. He quickly obtained his Customer Service Representative license and has been servicing his clients diligently ever since. Kalvin quickly realized that he had found his career of choice and then obtained his Property and Casualty Agent’s license for Florida and has become an intrinsic and valuable member of the staff of Wike Insurance. One for one our clients love working with him.
Currently Kalvin resides in Clearwater with his parents Steve and Denise Wike and is the primary agent for personal insurance at Wike Insurance.
