Meet the Team: Jacob Pipkin
Get to know our staff a little better. Jacob Pipkin is an advisor in our Construction Specialty Group at TrueNorth. He has worked in this insurance industry for 3 years! Here is more about who he is and what he does.
Q: How would you describe yourself in three words?
A: Energetic, Ambitious, Sociable
Q: What did you want to be when you grew up?
A: Since I was in grade school, I always wanted to be a writer. Telling stories is something I’ve always been passionate about and loved doing.
Q: What is the best thing you get to do in your job?
A: Taking a business and turning it from prospect to client to friends is one of the most rewarding parts of my job. I enjoy being able to turn what most people consider the typical insurance agent/client relationship and making it into even more.
Q: Tell me about how you got into your line of work.
A: For years I watched my father break cell phones, turn grey and pull his hair out as a member of the insurance industry, so I thought, “Why not?” He used to drive my sister and I around and point out every building he insured and would say, “I insure that!” Needless to say I never say myself in this arena. However, now that I have some experience in it, I realize it’s more about the relationships than the buildings.
Q: Do you have any favorite stories from your work life?
A: Starting my ‘insurance life’ in commercial truck insurance was a great way to make sure I saw and heard just about everything. There are so many stories to tell, I don’t think I could tell just one.
