Global Ag Insurance Services, a California-based crop insurance provider focused on specialty crop producers, is pleased to announce that Jordan Waltman has joined the team as Director of Compliance and Quality Control. Waltman, a highly regarded industry player, brings a unique understanding of the importance of improved risk management solutions in the western region, “I’m thrilled to join the only crop insurance company that focuses exclusively on growers and producers in this region. I think Global Ag’s commitment to providing tailored agricultural risk management solutions is critically important to the long-term stability and success of the industry in the western United States.”
Waltman brings nearly a decade of relevant professional and academic experience to the job. A graduate of California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo, with a Bachelor Degree in Agricultural Business, Waltman’s studies and research focused on regional issues including fruit science, irrigation practices and pest management. This provided Waltman with early exposure to specialty crops in the region. “I was able to work on some interesting projects with leading ag companies and organizations throughout the region including Western Growers association.”
After graduating from Cal Poly, Waltman joined Rain and Hail Insurance Services as a claims adjuster where he quickly distinguished himself and rose through the ranks. “My experience in the industry has given me an appreciation for the unique challenges that farmers in this region face. I look forward to working with growers and agents toward improved agricultural risk management solutions for the region.”
The proud father of five-month old twin boys, Waltman lightheartedly quips his free time has been limited as of late. However, when available, he enjoys spending downtime outdoors camping, fishing and hunting with family and friends.
