Scott G. Becker – From Mail Clerk to Accomplished Independent Insurance Brokerage Owner
Hello, I’m Scott Becker,
I appreciate you taking a few moments to learn a little bit about our agents and staff. Here is a little bit about me.
I was married to my beautiful wife Sarina in 1992 and we are the proud parents of 3 children. We have a 24 year old son James and 2 daughters, Sashell 22 and Breanna 17. All three of our children attended Elsinore High School. Children were all active in sports; Hockey, Basketball, Tennis and Volleyball.
Family Interests and Outreach
Our family loves sports, music, and horses. My wife, Sarina provides an outreach program to underprivileged youth at our ranch, where we use horses as therapy.
My Path to Insurance Broker
I Started out in the insurance business as a mail room clerk at American States Insurance Company (ASIC) in Carol Stream Illinois in 1981. I was promoted to underwriter in 1981 and hired out to an insurance agency that was looking for someone with a company background and computer knowledge to train their employees.
I eventually obtained my insurance license in 1982 at Hinsdale Associates. I was employed with Hinsdale until 1984.
I decided it was time to see the world and serve my country; so I enlisted in the Marine Corps where I was stationed at Camp Pendleton California, and Okinawa Japan. After a 4 year hitch, I was honorably discharged in 1989. My duties and training included, Squad leader, Expert Rifleman, Anti Tank Gunner, Demolitions Expert, Mountain Warfare Assault Climber, Water Safety Survival, and Lifeguard. What I learned in the Marine Corps that has always helped me in my insurance career, is how to develop a logical and orderly thought processes toward any mission. Not too mention hard work and discipline, that has always been the Marine Corps signature.
After my discharge from the Marine Corps I decided to stay in California, where I met my wife, Sarina. Interestingly, I ended up back in the insurance business because there wasn’t much of a need for an infantry soldier with my background in the civilian world. However, I saw in the insurance industry an oppurtunity to build a team of like minded individuals with the same sense of mission, to be of service to others, with the objective of helping individuals and families to lead safer and more well protected lives with less expense.
I opened our first office in Tustin in November 1989. My goal has always been to provide my customers with the best coverage, through quality service, low prices, and the ability to offer as many coverage options as possible in southern California. Having reached that goal, I really get a “charge” when I can put money back into my customers pockets, and provide them with better coverage than they previously had. Now, over 20 years later, SGB Insurance Services represents over 50 of the top companies in the industry. We are dedicated in finding cost effective solutions to our clients Insurance needs, and when we accomplish that mission it makes our job fun and our clients happy.
Our Mission Continues
After we have reached our initial objective for our clients, our mission continues by making sure all of our client’s have the kind of ongoing service that provides the flexibility to adjust their coverage as their needs may grow or change.
