John Tunnell
Allstate Insurance Company - John Tunnell Agency
Agency Owner
I moved here from Indiana in 2002 and opened my Allstate agency in 2007. I moved the agency from Chicago to Park Ridge in 2017.  I live close to the office and take advantage of what Park Ridge has to offer, including going to the parks with my two young kids.

On a larger level, my agency makes a difference by supporting a number of causes, many from a grassroots perspective, such as by providing financial support to GoFundMe campaigns or volunteering at a local school to help children boost their reading skills.

While my agency focuses primarily on home, auto, life, renters and retirement insurance, we’re also heavily involved in initiatives around distracted driving awareness, particularly for teens. Stop by and see us! We look forward to getting to know you.

General Manager

I am pleased to be the General Manager for our new Fitness Formula Clubs Park Ridge location.  It is great to be back in a town where I was a former resident.  

My experience is with several quality club companies in the health and wellness industry, both nationally and internationally. My career includes health club openings, startup involvement, extensive childcare service oversite, spa management as well as suburban and urban management, operations and customer service.

I look forward to our 65,000 lifestyle club that we are currently building in Park Ridge opening in January 2017.
