Shawn Iverson and his team at The Insurance Center have been an influence for good in the Weber County community in multiple ways. He has been involved with the Chamber of Commerce, coaching youth sports teams, sponsoring a portion of the Weber County Fair, and sponsoring many local schools in a variety of ways. “Our community has been so much a part of raising our own children.” Shawn and his team, who live among the community they serve, want to pay it forward. Whether it’s Wahlquist Junior High, Plain City Elementary, or other schools in the Western Weber area, they are happy to sponsor and support a variety of activities in big and small ways.
Shawn originally wanted to be a stock broker, and that is what he went to school to pursue, but after an internship during a down market, Shawn realized he wanted something different. Instead of apologizing when things go poorly, he loves being the one to make life better when life is hard for their friends and clients. “When bad things happen, we are there to help them. We hold their hand through the claims process.” In the last month, they have had two deaths with life insurance policies, and alleviating the weight of financial stress can make a big difference for the family left behind. When a hail storm did substantial damage to homes in the area, he and his team were there to help their insured clients get the necessary roof repairs they needed.
He started The Insurance Center in 1995, which was very challenging in the short term, but his mind was set on his long-term vision. Over time, the business has grown, and now he has 16 amazing team members. “I’ve surrounded myself with great people, they make me look better!” he said with a laugh. For the fourth year in a row now, they have been awarded as a Best Practice Agency, which is only given to 279 agencies out of the 38,000 in the nation. He said the award is “a stamp of approval that our peers recognize us as the best of the best, it’s a big honor.” Giving back and their involvement in the community are part of the criteria considered in receiving this award, which is one of the reasons we’re happy Shawn and his team have made their home in our community.
