We have amazing employees at California Casualty. The Employee Spotlight is a new series aiming to highlight those talented individuals that make up our successful company culture and community. From human resource recruiters and learning and development trainers to claims adjusters, marketers, customer support specialists, partner relations, sales representatives, and beyond; each week, we’ll highlight a new team member, so you can get to know us better and see how our employees make us who we are as a company.
This edition of the Employee Spotlight will feature Field Marketing Team Manager, Jeff Myers.
Jeff has been with us for a whopping 25 years and works remotely for our Partner Relations team.
Let’s get to know Jeff!
What made you want to work as a Field Marketing Team Manager for California Casualty?
Back in 1993, my uncle worked for CalCas. I went to dinner with him one night, along with two other guys that had worked for over 25 years with CalCas. They talked so well about this company that I told my uncle I had to work there.
I applied and started with the company in the newly formed Retention Unit
What is your favorite part about your job?
There isn’t just one thing. Knowing that the company has the back of whom we insure, the graciousness they treat the employees with, the family feel- every CEO I have worked for knows the names of employees and their spouse- it’s amazing.
I’ve had a few jobs at CalCas, Retention Specialist, Sales, Field Marketing Manager, Sr. Field Marketing Manager, and now Team Manager. Each of those positions has involved working with great people and managers. They all have been fun jobs, but the best thing is who we serve, public safety, educators, nurses, and others. To see how we service them is so satisfying.
What have you learned in your position at California Casualty?
How to lead others well using the “Outward Mindset” philosophy.
What are your favorite activities to do outside of the office?
We spend a lot of time at our church service in the local community. My wife directs the foyer ministry and I oversee the Security Detail. I also lead a men’s group, Elders, and Married Life groups. I also serve as a Chaplin for the Riverside Sheriff’s Department.
My wife and I love to camp in the wilderness. We’ve slept in tents, Class-A motorhomes, and in cabins. When we travel we love to take our jeep and find new places we have never seen before, and return to some of our favorite places we discovered.
I like to fish but my wife sits there and reads. (No worms for her haha).
We’ve also traveled to Israel and are looking forward to going back soon!
Anything else you would like the audience to know about you?
I have two dreams that may never come true, but I never stop dreaming or thinking about them.
1.In my younger years, I was an actor- on stage from the age of 5. My best role was playing the lead role of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof”. I actually was the only lead role that ever received an outstanding review by a local newspaper. So my dream is to be in a movie one day, preferably a western.
2. I grew up off-roading with my family. We belonged to a Jeep Club and would be out bouncing around in my dad’s 1963 International Scout. I learned to drive at age 10. As an adult, I have owned a few off-road vehicles and became a proficient driver. At one point I almost won a Baja Bug at an off-road show drawing. My friend and I would have used that to race in the Baja 1000. I still have that dream of racing an off-road vehicle, either in Mexico at the Baja 1000 or a race here in California called “The King of the Hammers”.
Another interesting fact, I was on a NASCAR race team with my brother. I was invited to help with their pit stops at the California and Las Vegas Speedways.
