Mennonite Insurance Services recently added new employee Vic Alemania to their team as the Regional Sales Manager for California, Oregon, and Washington. We took some time to chat with Vic recently and get to know him a little better. Vic was born and raised in the San Francisco area and currently lives in Walnut Creek. He works from home, but travels from city to city to meet with clients.
Vic graduated from St. Mary’s College in Moraga, CA and has been a part of the insurance industry for 35 years—30 of those years in sales. He landed in the insurance industry completely out of desperation, but it turned out well for him. “We were in the midst of a recession–not many companies hiring. I had no interest in the Insurance Industry. I fell into it. The rest is history!” He now loves what he does, especially interacting with clients and solving their insurance needs. The hardest thing about his job recently has been the shelter-in-place order where he hasn’t been able to have face-to-face visits with them.
Vic is married to Judith and they have five children. In his rare free time, he is very much an outdoors person who loves cooking on the BBQ, gardening, and golf. When he does get the chance to relax and watch TV, watching sports is at the top of his list, but he also enjoys the Food Network. Vic’s favorite teams are the Raiders, the A’s, and the Warriors. “I am a big fan of Football (Pro and College), Baseball, and Basketball!”
Though he seldom has the time to read, Vic is also a fan of James Patterson and will read anything he writes. His movie tastes run to action and thrillers as well, but his all-time favorite is “The Godfather.”
If you have any insurance questions, why not pick up the phone and get to know Vic better, while he works to meet your insurance needs. (559) 643-2948; Vic@MennoniteInsurance.com
