It has been a long time coming but the team at EPB&B is thrilled to officially welcome Dylan Baker. Dylan has grown up in the world of EPB&B insurance while both his grandfather, past President Neil Baker and his dad, current President Marc Baker dedicated themselves to making EPB&B one of the top independent insurance agencies in Oregon. After graduating with a business degree from University of Oregon, and completing internships at both EPB&B, and SAIF Corporation, Dylan is ready to continue his insurance career. Here is more about Dylan, his experience, and his thoughts on joining the family business.
- What is your back ground in the insurance industry? I have a few years of collective experience in the industry, although I have never been a licensed agent or CSR. Most of my experience has come from working as a summer intern at EPB&B, as well as, completing a recent internship at SAIF corporation doing Workers Compensation where I learned a great deal about that side of the industry.
- What do you like most about working in the insurance industry? I thoroughly enjoy working with small and medium-sized businesses around Oregon and the greater Pacific Northwest region. Insurance can be complicated, and it is not at the forefront of most businessowner’s minds. Working in the insurance industry allows me to help these folks who keep our local economy afloat.
- What made you choose EPB&B as the next step in your career path. Choosing EPB&B was easy for me. It means a great deal to me that I can continue our family’s business, while simultaneously being a positive asset to the community. Many businesses nowadays undertake some form of philanthropic initiative, but none to the extent of EPB&B. My dad, Marc Baker truly takes philanthropy to the next level.
- Is there anything you’d like to share to allow people to get to know more about you? In my free time, I really enjoy cooking for my friends and family. Also, I spent a decent amount of time working out in the gym. In all honesty, I’m looking to pick up some new hobbies.
Welcome to the Team Dylan.
