“We are the balance in an industry full of change” – President Scott Eckley
Kansas City has been home for my family and I for almost 30 years. Most of that time has been spent developing and growing businesses. In 2010 a series of events led me to the insurance industry where my mindset was forever altered in how to view insurance. Prior to 2010 my experience with insurance was not so great. As a business owner making health insurance decisions each year fell on my shoulders, and each year this process would turn me into a three-year-old emotionally and intellectually…… I just never understood health insurance! How ironic it was for me a few short years later to be firmly entrenched in the industry. Born and raised on a farm in Iowa I was taught early in my life to work tirelessly for your family and those who counted on you. I have never strayed far from this vital characteristic instilled in me as a young man. My success in sports through college allowed me to hone my highly competitive nature into worthwhile endeavors. Health insurance has become an ever-changing commodity requiring experts to understand the nuances, network access, in and out of network benefits, available RX benefits, etc.
Vice President Business Development
I started working at a young age in the restaurant industry. I ended up making a career out of it after taking some advice from a mentor of mine to learn everything I could about every facet of the business, and out work everyone else. Putting this advice to work I learned about people development, operations, training, human resources and so much more. I was part of teams that grew different restaurant concepts over 40 restaurants a year, audited and authored training material, and taught people how to facilitate that training. What I didn’t know was that these experiences coupled with an intense hunger to see people succeed was preparing me for a career in sales and business development. Excelling in building and nurturing long term relationships I owned a consulting firm working with insurance carriers, agencies, and agents helping design and implement growth strategies to grow their bottom line and have great systems to cultivate their own great success. Recognizing opportunities with different companies we have expanded market reach, generated new business growth, and fostered strategic alliances all while delivering exceptional service. Now, being on the team here at Aspire Insurance Solutions we are bringing our keen business acumen to explore untapped markets to help you keep moving forward building a solid foundation like never before.
Business Relationship Manager
I operate from the basis of turning life wisdom into business success. I come from the school of Hard Work U and understand that greatness lies within all of us. I have a multifaceted approach to all situations after having been blessed to work for a subsidiary of Fortune 10 Berkshire Hathaway and several other Fortune 500 companies such as Coca-Cola and Core logic along with having been a solo-preneur for over 25 years now. My background is in real property appraisal, sales, real estate management, feasibility studies, investments, and insurance of all kinds. I have served on the boards for Chamber of Commerce and many other community organizations. I have been blessed to work alongside many charitable organizations and continues to support them through fund raising efforts. If you don’t catch me in the office it is very likely I’m literally running somewhere around the globe. I am well on my way to completing the Abbot World Major Marathons and have a love for trail running.
Being one of the youngest members of Aspire, I bring a continued level of excellence and growth to our team. Growing up in a small town in Nebraska and being raised by a very driven family I learned the difference between just work and then being excellent in work. That paradigm has given me countless opportunities and experiences. I originally came to the Kansas City area to study at MidAmerica Nazarene University and to run track. During my time in school there I was able to accomplish several All-Americans and graduate Magna Cum Laude. After graduation, I had dived into the health insurance industry and that was one of the best decisions I made because the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the best leaders in this industry. With the current climate of health insurance, it is important to give agents and brokers the tools and resources they need to be successful and to help guide their clients in the crazy storm and industry of insurance.
