“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”
– Wayne Gretzky
Nate, who heads our agricultural insurance partner Agsurance, is a farm boy through and through. He grew up on a classic Illinois corn and soybean farm, and moonlighted on his neighbors pig farm. He had a real will to win even as a kid, staying active in both baseball and basketball. If you talk to the people who know him best, the words you will hear most might just be “competitive” and “confident”.
Nate took his competitive nature with him to college, working in an Ag leadership program. It was during this time he discovered crop insurance. Liking the sound of the opportunity, he spent the next 12 years being one of the top ag insurance salesmen in the region. But Nate saw a real void in the Ag space that he was so passionate about. Partnering with us at Ledgestone, Nate’s competitive nature drives real change in the ag industry through Agsurance. His confidence still shines through as well - he is a visionary partner to his clients, determined to exceed expectations and help every company he works with become their best.
Nate has been married to his wife Michelle for 20 years and together with their 4 daughters, they stay active and competitive. They cheer their kids on in basketball, volleyball, cross country, track, softball and swimming. Don’t forget about family game night. Whether it’s a board game or cards, there will be a winner at the end of the night. Did we mention that Nate is competitive? Nate and his family also love to boat during the summer months and travel whenever their busy schedules allow, he hopes one day to visit Australia, New Zealand, and take a cruise through the Panama Canal.
