Reggie Thomas joins Pacific Crest Insurance Alliance

Captive Agent looks to build on knowledge in independent setting

ADDISON, TX: An influx of new agents have found their way to Pacific Crest Insurance. One of those agents is Reginald (Reggie) Thomas Jr. from the Dallas, Texas area. Reggie joins the Alliance after 18 months in the captive insurance setting. He brings a unique perspective to the team with experiences in the Air Force and several high-level sales positions with notable technology companies.

Reggie looks forward to having the ability of “providing other options for my clients. A lot of people I have written business with, I have built personal relationships with. There’s a bigger portfolio I can provide them with.”

Now, after going through Pacific Crest’s quarterly training for new and existing agents, he is primed to unleash his new independence. Reggie learned quite a bit about how to market his business, how to use the systems PCS has put in place and a lot more that is sure to lead him to the promised land.

Reggie did his homework and spoke with some other agents he went to insurance class with who knew about PCS. After his thorough approach was complete, he knew that PCS was the place he needed to be.

“Reggie is a talented guy,” says Pacific Crest Principal, Shawn Webb. “It’s not often you come across a guy like that.”

The Dallas area is one of the fastest growing in the country and has some great opportunity. Knowing what’s in front of him, Reggie is now hungry to start his own shop and put that knowledge and experience to work.

At Pacific Crest Insurance, we minimize agent overhead and provide agents access to industry leading insurance tools so they can focus on what’s important – their clients.

Connie Landon, Independent Agent, joins Pacific Crest Insurance

Commercial trucking specialist opens her own agency

 

 

Umatilla, OR: A new independent insurance agent joins the ranks with Pacific Crest Insurance Alliance. A commercial trucking specialist in Oregon found many benefits in switching over to the alliance out of Eagle, Idaho. Connie Landon, a Hermiston, OR native, recently opened her new office near the Washington border.

 

Connie started her expertise in the trucking world in 2004 when she took a position with the Oregon Department of Transportation as a Registration Analyst II. She continued to build her knowledge in the regulations and licensing of the industry, giving her a lot of insight.

 

In 2012, Connie decided it was time to put that knowledge and experience to use in the insurance realm. Now knowing all of the ins and outs that truckers have to abide by, “it was a very smooth transition to the insurance industry,” she says.

 

Earlier this year, Connie made the jump to opening her own office along the Columbia River.

 

“The process in becoming a part of Pacific Crest has been a very positive and a very educational experience. I feel very fortunate to have partnered with them.” Connie has taken in all that the alliance has to offer and is poised to grow her agency.

 

“From computer systems, raters, back office staff and marketing. They offer you all the tools needed in insurance to succeed.”

 

Connie is especially excited to start writing life insurance, as she recently learned how many benefits there were to quoting and writing these policies. “The staff are very helpful and very knowledgeable.  You can tell that they want to help you succeed which is a very comforting feeling,” Connie says of her time with Pacific Crest, so far.

Pacific Crest Insurance Adds Heidi Hales-Walker to their Roster

Florida native is excited to join the alliance and start her agency

 

 

New Smyrna Beach, FL: With their most recent addition, Pacific Crest Insurance brings Heidi Hales-Walker on board as an independent insurance agent. “H. Hales-Walker Insurance Agency” is a product of almost 20 years in the insurance business and will be located in New Smyrna Beach, FL.

 

Agent, Heidi, has spent most of her time in the industry under a captive state where she says, “my hands were pretty much tied, a lot.” Without the ability to give more than one product to a customer, she looks forward to “having more options and being able to shop in order to retain my clients.”

 

After going through Pacific Crest’s quarterly training for new and existing agents, she is ready to hit the ground running. Heidi learned quite a bit about how to improve her marketing and how to use the systems PCS has put in place.

 

When asking Heidi about her experience with Pacific Crest, so far, she says, “you’re not just thrown out to the wolves. They give you a lot of the tools to get you where you need to be. If you’ve got a little hill to get over, they’re going to help you get over it.”

 

Being a sixth-generation native of New Smyrna Beach, Heidi plans to capitalize on her knowledge of the community. With a strong presence in the market, her agency is sure to take off right away.

 

At Pacific Crest Insurance, we minimize agent overhead and provide agents access to industry leading insurance tools so they can focus on what’s important – their clients.
