Josh spent 7 years adjusting property claims throughout the country for many different insurance carriers. Josh’s wife’s career was also gaining momentum and eventually moved them to the Midwest and he finally settled down for the long term in the Twin Cities of which Josh has grown to love! After much thought and time researching construction companies in search of a company with great character, morals, reputation and stability, Josh decided to take a closer look at Allstar. Josh was impressed with Allstar and accepted an offer to become their Claims Manager.
