He holds dual bachelor degrees from Portland State University in General Business Management and Human Resource Management. He is also a U.S. Army veteran having served in our country’s military for 3 years. After being honorably discharged from the military Scott went to work for his father, Ken Rhoten, in an insurance agency located in Portland, Oregon. Here is where Scott started learning the family owned insurance business. After 8 years of working under his father, Scott established his own independent insurance company on the idea of partnering with multiple top U.S. insurance companies that can bring value to his clients.

Scott enjoys spending time with family and friends. He enjoys meeting and talking with people from all walks of life; always making a point of understanding their value and beliefs. He is active in the Make a Wish Foundation, volunteers for Loaves and Fishes, Professional Insurance Association, and Young Professionals of Portland organizations.

An Independent Advantage

Northwest Community Insurance represents a carefully selected group of financially strong, reputable insurance companies, therefore, we are able to offer you the best coverage at the most competitive price.

What is an Independent Insurance Agent?

When you decide to buy a car, you wouldn’t purchase the first one you see. What if one day the automobile industry decided to make only one type of car, one make and one model. You wouldn’t have a choice!

The same situation holds true for insurance. You need insurance to drive a car, to purchase a house, to protect your family’s financial future and to run a small business. But if there was only one insurance company that offered only one type of insurance, car insurance, home insurance or business owner policy — you wouldn’t have a choice. The only solution would be going to that one company.

With an independent insurance agent, you have choices. Independent agents are not tied to any one insurance company. One of the advantages of using an independent agent is that he or she works to satisfy your needs. You are using an expert for an important financial decision.

An independent agent has several companies that he or she can approach to get you the best coverage at the best price. And your independent agent will know the companies with the most efficient claims departments to recover your losses as quickly as possible.

When you buy insurance, whether it’s for your home, your car or your business, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, it’s up to you to make the final choice.

Northwest Community Insurance offers a consulting-based, relationship management approach, to create customized risk management programs and create insurance coverages for our commercial insurance and personal insurance household clients. At home and around the globe, we act as a partner to those who need our services and professional advice.
