Meet Our Team

Steve Leitch

I joined the Leitch Insurance Agency in 1987 after receiving a degree in Risk Management & Insurance at UW-Madison. I enjoy serving the insurance needs of personal and commercial clients.

It’s important to me to be involved in the River Falls community, having served on the Board of Directors for the River Falls Chamber of Commerce & River Falls Main Street Project, and am currently active with the Rotary Club and serve on the boards of the River Falls Community Foundation and the River Falls Area Hospital. I also enjoy maintaining a strong level of involvement in the insurance industry, having served on agent advisory boards for Encompass Insurance and West Bend Mutual, and also am a member of the Board of Directors for the Independent Insurance Agents of Wisconsin.

I consider myself lucky to live in River Falls and value the personal and business relationships I’ve established over the last 25 +years.

I joined Leitch Insurance Agency in 2013. After receiving my degree at UW-Madison, I entered the industry as a commercial lines underwriter for Auto-Owners Insurance. That experience has given me added insight in analyzing commercial risks and insuring them properly.

I am active with the Chamber of Commerce Ambassador Committee and enjoy being part of the River Falls business community.



Brandon Leitch

I grew up here in River Falls, and after spending a few years in Madison earning my Associates Degree, I’m back in River Falls.

I’m lucky to be a part of this hardworking team and I enjoy the comfortable atmosphere our office provides. Licensed in property & casualty, I enjoy helping our personal lines clients with their insurance needs. My dedication is to assist our policyholders and help wherever possible. In addition, I provide general data support as well as other various tasks here at Leitch Insurance.

My free time is often spent playing drums or guitar, as I have a great passion for playing and creating music.


Dave Black

I am a third-generation resident of River Falls. My grandparents homesteaded in River Falls in 1897. I have spent my entire life in this community, and I am very familiar with the area and its residents. I owned and operated a dairy farm from 1973 until 1988 in the River Falls area. In 1987, I received my property & casualty and life & health licenses and started as an agent for Rural Mutual Insurance Company.

In 1992, I joined the Leitch Agency, providing commercial, farm and personal lines insurance. I’m also active in the life and health market with small group sales. My experience in agriculture gives me great confidence when I sell and service farm accounts. That knowledge also flows over to the commercial market as well.

My social interest and passion has been my involvement with youth sports and activities in our community and state. I am currently the Chairman of the Wisconsin Wrestling Federation, and I’m a member of the Junior National Olympic Wrestling Committee. I also serve on the long range planning committee for USA Wrestling in Colorado Springs.

My wife, Mary, and I have four adult children and one daughter-in-law and two sons-in-law, as well as six grandchildren. We currently reside in River Falls.

I’ve been a licensed insurance agent since 1997. I worked at American Family Insurance prior to joining the Leitch Insurance Agency in March of 1999. I am licensed to write property, casualty, life and health insurance.

I was born and raised in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin and graduated from UW-Whitewater in 1993 with a BBA in Business Management.

I enjoy being active in the community, and am a member of the River Falls Lions Club. In my spare time, I enjoy running, watching the Green Bay Packers, and spending time with my family.

I live in River Falls with my wife, Karen, and our two daughters, Annika and Arianne.

I have been with the Leitch Insurance Agency since 1994. I received my property & casualty license in 1987, and was active as an agent until 2002. I then took the bookkeeping position here, which has been my main area of focus. Having the product background and licensing available allows me to assist customers as the need arises.
