A Family Business Legacy

Each year, the OSU Austin Family Business Program recognizes select businesses for their familial practices and for “their innovation, entrepreneurship, commitment and heart.” Founded in 1988, the Excellence in Family Business Awards program invites family businesses to apply and applications are then reviewed and rated by a panel of judges.

We are so proud and honored to have been named a Finalist in the Generational Development category.

Here’s why: Rick John, our fearless leader, hired his sons (Brian, CFO & Jason, COO) to join him on the leadership team. Both Brian and Jason grew up with the mindset of working at Hagan Hamilton Insurance Solutions one day, alongside their father.

But theirs isn’t the only family at Hagan Hamilton Insurance Solutions. In reality, all employees are treated like family. Rick and his team do an excellent job of creating a culture that encourages positive and relational interactions, and that is one of our most important and unique characteristics, and one of the reasons we’ve remained as one of the 100 Best Companies to work for in Oregon for 7 consecutive years.

Thank you, OSU Austin Family Business Program, for the honor of being listed as one of Oregon’s best family businesses in 2015 and for recognizing that one of the best ways of running a business is to treat it like a family – because it is.
