To serve clients in the region in a cost-effective manner

Engle Martin & Associates, an insurance adjusting and claims management firm, has established an office in Portland, OR.

This is the company’s second office in the Pacific Northwest. The Seattle office has been opened for seven years under the leadership of Steve DeKoekkoek, a national general adjuster with over 20 years experience as an independent and company adjuster.

Trevor Arnold and Mike Kalby are the two senior adjusters managing the Portland office. Mr Arnold has been with Engle Martin for three years having worked in the insurance industry for seven years including four years as a property adjuster with Safeco. Since joining Engle Martin, he has worked Hurricane Ike in the Gulf region and the winter storms of 2007 and 2008 in the Northwest.

Although new to Engle Martin, Mr Kalby has worked in the industry for 10 years at both insurance companies and independent adjusting companies, most recently for Plover and Associates in Portland as a senior adjuster. His focus will be commercial property and liability assignments.
