Steve Boydstun is a relative newcomer to the Insurance world; being a Licensed Public Adjuster for only 5 years in California and Arizona. However, he fills a vital role in the company and with our clients. Steve started in the industry as the Chief Administrative Officer for Independence Public Adjusters when it started in 2012 and is one of the founding members.
Steve’s background started in a completely different industry. He went from his college education in aviation, with a strong minor in accounting and business to become a commercial pilot and instructor for over 15 years. When Steve became a father, his desire to be home with his family led him to leave the airline industry.
Steve found his place after leaving the airline world by entering the business world. For the next 12 years Steve filled the roles of Manufacturer Representative, Regional Sales Manager, HR & Risk Director, and Administrative Director for some of the largest companies in their fields including: Graphic Sciences, Certainteed Windows, P&H Crane, Inc., and Cummins Allison; All roles that allowed Steve to expand on his business knowledge and fulfill strategic roles that these companies needed.
In 2012, a long time friend, Tony Astone, enlisted Steve on a new quest. Steve became a financial investor and Co-Founder of Independence Public Adjusters. His role now takes on many faces as he is quickly becoming a known expert in this industry, but his passion still remains maintaining the business side of the company as the CAO. He attends all strategic meetings and lends his expertise in every facet of the company. Steve also co-authored “When the Smoke Clears” an experts guide to insurance claims.
“What I love about my role is I am able to pitch in wherever needed with our clients as well as with the office. There always seems to be a wildcard thrown out by the insurance companies, and being part of the pulse of our company allows me to offer my insight into the solutions. I know every morning our job is going to be tough; the carriers make sure of that. But, I also know that our clients expect ……….and deserve us to be tougher. I make sure that we don’t let them down.”
