About Us

Insurance Professional

Psalm 84:11 says, “For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.”

At Sun and Shield Insurance Group, we are proud to bring over 40 years of unparalleled experience in the insurance business to our valued clients. Our founder, with a deep passion for the industry, started by building a life and disability agency with a nationally known insurer. After six successful years, he sold his agency and transitioned into corporate brokerage, where he built another thriving agency.

The culmination of our founder’s remarkable journey led to an extraordinary opportunity in the executive suite of Blue Cross Blue Shield. Holding three different executive seats within the organization, he served as the Vice President of National Sales for Uni-Care before being recruited by United Health Care. At United Health Care, he played a pivotal role in starting an individual medical business unit and held the position of Vice President of Sales and Marketing.

With an unwavering commitment to excellence, our founder was recruited into Blue Shield of Nebraska, serving as the Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. Following this, he ventured into consulting before returning to Blue Cross of Idaho as Senior Vice President of Sales, Marketing & Customer Experience. Throughout this remarkable career journey, our founder has gained extensive experience in every aspect of business insurance, leaving no stone unturned. He possesses a deep understanding of the industry, and his insights have touched every face of the business.
