Our Staff

John Sweeney

President

Hi, my name is John. I began my insurance career after my graduation from the University of Redlands. I am a Commercial Lines Agent and Life and Health Agent who, with my wife Nancy, are the owners of Sweeney Insurance and have been working in the agency for 32 years.

Believe it or not, I have a life outside of insurance. I love to play golf and cook. I volunteer my time as a member of the Senior Citizens Endowment Board and enjoy getting out and watching all the Kodiak High School athletic events.

Bruce McMullen

Producer

I have always loved the outdoors and jumped at the opportunity to move to Alaska in July 2017 — I love it here! Before moving to Kodiak, I owned and operated my own food cart in Portland, Oregon — I'm a foodie and love to cook. In December 2018, my wife and I welcomed our first baby to our family and are having the time of our lives. I have a passion for business and love helping people.
