A Little History

Pacific Crest Independent Insurance Alliance is a privately owned corporation headquartered in Eagle, Idaho. We started in 2002 as an independent agency with the company’s primary focus of providing customers with the right mix of insurance products to protect them from life’s unforeseen events. We have found that this approach creates a relationship that assures client longevity despite changing market conditions.

Pacific Crest strives to create an organization of ethical, dynamic and hardworking agents that share our vision. As a result, the alliance has experienced significant growth in the last five years and continues to open markets to benefit its members. Currently, the alliance operates in 17 states, with hundreds of independent agents across the U.S. and a client base that now measures in the tens of thousands.

Vision

At Pacific Crest our goal is to provide our agents and clients with the best possible support and service. It keeps us focused on our agents’ success and growth.

We have developed a culture of integrity and ethical business practices. Similarly important, the alliance is focused on growing as an organization and providing growth opportunities for our agents and agencies. Our success of building agencies has been in large part due to our consistent pursuit of technology that supports the alliance. It allows us to retain agents that are truly centered on what’s important – their clients.

We envision a generational organization for our alliance members and their families. All of this is built on doing what is right for our respective communities and striving to be a valued resource and strategic partner.

We truly view the members of our alliance as independent. This means minimum oversight aimed at allowing them to achieve the organizational vision with ethical behavior and a consumer-first climate.
