John’s primary responsibility is providing solutions and managing relationships within our Enterprise Client Group.  John is a Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) and Certified Risk Manager (CRM). He is the past President of the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of Oregon State Association.  John is also the past Chair of the Far West Agents Technical Conference which consists of eleven western States which review and develop coverage forms for the insurance industry.  John currently serves as the Board Chair of Treasure Valley Community College and is a member of the Ontario Chamber of Commerce.  Over his career, John has worked with many industries, with specialization in public entities.

When asked why he works for Waldo Agencies, John replied “It’s an opportunity to work with a variety of businesses and learn the issues and implications that each of our clients face – then provide solutions and protection that will enable their organization to continue in the event of a loss”.

Outside of work, John enjoys sports of all kinds, especially basketball even though “I’m only 5’8” and have a 6” vertical!”  John also states “Knowing that you have contributed to helping teams improve and work together, from the basketball court, to the board room, to your family (my wife, 2 sons and a daughter) is a rewarding and valuable experience”.
