Meet Our Team

Alex Cole


Agency Owner
I’m very proud of our team here at Cole Insurance; we have an extremely proficient and amicable troop, eager to help our customers find policies that best fit them .

I grew up in Frisco, CO and was a ski racer for the Summit Race Team. Eventually, I moved to Newport Beach, CA and attended Chapman University where I graduated with a degree in Organizational Leadership.

Today, I’m the owner of two agencies, we purchased our first agency in January 2010 and the second in December 2013. I’m very passionate about working with clients that have an interest in protecting their most valuable assets. Helping people secure assets that they’ve worked so hard for is a gratifying part of my job. We truly enjoy being able to help ensure that physical tragedies don’t become financial tragedies.

When I’m not working, I’m at home enjoying time with my wife Jessica and our two children, Avery and Thomas. Also, as a part owner of the Green Bay Packers and an avid sports fan, if there is a sports game on, I’ll be watching it. I also enjoy golfing.

Currently, I serve on the Board of Directors for the Wishbone Foundation, which is a tremendous organization that gives students the opportunity to pursue their passion. I was also an original board member for Mile High Young Professionals.

Christopher Kinsky


Personal Financial Representative

Helping clients by bringing them customized solutions and in-depth analysis of their financial needs are a passion of mine. My goal is to improve people’s financial situation in the short and long term by offering more flexibility, assurances and risk management. I enjoy helping people take control of their financial future so they have a peace of mind.

In the past, I’ve managed branch offices for large mutual funds and international insurance companies. I have more than 30 years of hands-on success with individual clients and businesses, including personally overseeing accounts with assets under management of over $20m. I take great pleasure in helping families improve their financial situation from all walks of life.

I grew up in Rochester NY and moved to Denver at the age of 24. I have a management degree (BS, printing management) from RIT and hold numerous securities and insurance licenses. However, when I’m not working, I like to make wine, play sports, and spend time with family. I enjoy outdoor activities like hiking with my wife and dogs or working on the small vineyard in my backyard.

I am a sports junkie who loves my local Colorado teams and my youngest son’s college baseball career (he is a pitcher). But I’m what some people call a ‘jack of all trades’, so whatever you like I may end up liking too.

My three boys are all Eagle Scouts. Consequently, when it comes to volunteering, I have been involved along the way with numerous BSA projects and volunteerism – as well as helping the Red Cross, Salvation Army, KVOD catering, and activities within the American Legion.

Karen Sveda


Account Representative
I have been working in the P&C industry for over 12 years, specializing in personal lines business. At work, I enjoy knowing that we are here to help keep our clients and their families protected. As a Colorado native and a graduate of Colorado State University, I am proud to call our beautiful state my home!

At home, I like to spend quality time with my wonderful husband and beautiful daughter! Even better – if that time together is spent riding a roller coaster or at a Broncos game. Spending time with my family is very important to me, whether it’s taking in a movie, enjoying the beautiful Colorado outdoors or even just hanging out together. Someday, I would love to dedicate my time to filling up my passport and collecting stamps from great travels.

My niece has been living with type one diabetes for the last 10 years and I have come to love and support the work that JDRF does for all those affected by this disease.

Ryan Waggoner


Account Representative

My family has always worked in insurance and I started early 2015.
I grew up in West Palm Beach, FL and attended Florida Atlantic University, majoring in Political Science, and minoring in Business. At work, I enjoy helping people find solutions even through difficult times.

Working on my Jeep is a hobby of mine. I enjoy being active, so I spend most weekends hiking in the mountains, or going on trails. Netflix is one of my guilty pleasures – I can binge watch a show in no time.

I have volunteered at several animal shelters. I also take part in trail cleanups with my off-road group.

Sue Reynolds


Account Representative
I have over 15 years experience in the insurance industry, ranging from recruiting, to sales, and agency management.

My father was in the military, so I grew up all over the world and it was a wonderful experience. I was born in Paraguay and went to high school in Japan!

The best part of my job is working with our wonderful clients and helping them feel secure and protected.

My greatest joys in life are my kids and grandkids. There is not enough time or space to say how amazing they all are! I love spending time with family and friends when not working, but I must also admit to being an avid thrift store treasure hunter.

I love to swing dance and lindy hop…. However, any kind of music will set my feet to tapping.
As a former Junior League board member, I still very much appreciate all the different volunteer work that this organization fosters.

Jennifer Hallada


Account Representative

My experience in the insurance industry has been very rewarding. I’ve been working in insurance for about 5 years now. What I enjoy the most about my job is our team and the people I get to help everyday.

I grew up in California. When I’m not working, I love to be active and enjoy the outdoors. Nonetheless, I also enjoy reading a good book and hanging out with good friends. One of my favorite things to do over the weekend is driving up to the mountains.

I would love the opportunity to help people and volunteer my time.
