Lu DiPaolo

Principal / Licensed Insurance Advisor

Lu is currently the Agency Principal at Diverso Insurance Services. With over a decade of experience in Insurance, Lu has connected with people of all ages and backgrounds and that has allowed him to understand peoples basic need to protect their family, hard earned possessions and their wellbeing to further their happiness.

Connection with his clients and community have always been important to Lu. Lu's community involvement includes being President of Uptown Chamber of Commerce for almost 5 years and he is currently still an active board member. In addition to the Uptown Chamber, Lu has been an active member of the LGBT Chamber of IL since 2009. Participation in both Chamber's events, mixers, parades and fund raisers has affirmed his value as an active member of the community. His repeated contributions and volunteer work have made him an invaluable resource for his colleagues and provided great opportunities for recent grads through internship programs and mentorship programs.

Being Principal at Diverso Insurance Services is Lu's second act in the Insurance business. He started a scratch Insurance Agency named AArdvark Insurance Agency in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago back in 2009. At the time, he opened his doors with the help of a friend, no clients and few carrier appointments. Over time the Agency grew by word of mouth and a grass roots campaign that included neighborhood involvement and membership in local Chambers of Commerce. By 2019 the Agency had 4 employees, a great neighborhood presence and many happy clients. Having achieved his goal and realizing it was time to switch gears, he sold the agency expecting to take on a different role in life. It was time to move on and find a second act. 2020 came along and the pandemic changed everything. Getting back to basics and what he's known for, Lu is back in the insurance business.

Today, Diverso Insurance Services provides a more personal approach to insurance and gives all our clients access to a dedicated Licensed Insurance Advisor with no waiting in a call queue and a no-nonsense approach to Insurance solutions that includes many diverse carrier choices. Diverso clients get the expertise and insight of a trusted advisor who can provide options to find the proper solution for any insurance need. Lu is always available for some free advice, knowledge and direction. If he cannot help, he will certainly point you in the right direction. He continues to be “The Insurance Guy”, but also the community guy with an understanding and acceptance for diversity in society and in life.
