John Neace

President - Business Insurance

Throughout his career, John Neace has exemplified the essential qualities of a true entrepreneur. He demonstrated his persistence and independence of spirit early on, when, after growing up in West Newport with his mother and two siblings, John put himself through college at Northern Kentucky University and then enhanced his educational base by earning his MPA at Xavier University. Meanwhile, he took the initiative to build one of the top insurance agencies in the United States, having grown an agency from zero revenue to over $100 million in just under 20 years. 

In addition to his insurance industry success, John has demonstrated a willingness to take risks by simultaneously building other businesses, including a trucking company, real estate investments and developments, an Ashley Furniture franchise, a sheet metal fabricator, a winery and Falls City Brewing Company just to name a few. Excluding insurance, his companies average another $100 million in annual sales. It is a tribute to his vision, perseverance and commitment to customer satisfaction as well as his involvement in communities in Louisville and Southern Indiana.

John has recently taken on the role as Chairman of the Louisville City Soccer Board of Directors after serving as a member of the club’s ownership and board of managers since their inception in 2014.
