President, Pacific Northwest Territory
Josh was born and raised in Pasadena, California and received his degree in Communication from Seattle Pacific University. After graduation, Josh pursued a business opportunity with Allstate Insurance Company where he gained a strong foundational understanding of the technical side of insurance underwriting. During his years with Allstate, Josh was honored to be selected to receive advanced training in Allstate’s National underwriting headquarters in Northbrook, Illinois.
Josh accepted UWIB’s offer to lead our operations in the Pacific Northwest in May of 2016. He is based in our Seattle office.
While in college, Josh built his love for and knowledge of the specialty coffee industry at Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea (now part of Peet’s) and Milstead & Co – one of Seattle’s most honored Specialty Coffee shops, which has been recognized among the top 10 SCAA shops in the US.
Josh is an accomplished athlete, cyclist, and golfer. He has developed close working relationships within the coffee, bicycle, hand-crafted beer, wine and distillery industries. As a result, he is truly the perfect fit to lead our Seattle office with a close focus on risk management and insurance practices on these industries, all of which are prevalent in the Pacific Northwest.
