Doug began his career in Insurance working at Fireman’s Fund in the Commercial Lines Department. While there he met Dick Walton, who was then President of Beehive Insurance. Dick recognized Doug’s talent and strong work ethic and invited him to come to work at Beehive.
In 1979, Doug began his career at Beehive Insurance Agency working for Dick Walton. He soon began specializing in providing coverage and surety bonds for the construction industry as well as all other lines of commercial insurance.
Doug became the President and CEO of Beehive Insurance in 1992, succeeding Dick Walton. In the late ’90s and early 2000s, Doug took advantage of several opportunities to build the agency by adding talented career producers. The success of Beehive can be attributed to Doug and his passion for building a strong team of dedicated employees who are always willing to go the extra mile, and who bring the highest standards of integrity to the insurance industry.
Adam Snow joined Beehive in March 2011. Before and during college, Adam worked as a general supervisor at a local water park, an intern at Geneva Rock Products, and as a sales representative and graphic designer at a printing center. After finishing school he did an internship at Workers Compensation Fund of Utah learning about the ins and outs of workers compensation insurance. Those experiences have helped him gain a better understanding of the risks businesses face and from what they need protection.
In his role at Beehive, Adam works with businesses of all types helping them find insurance solutions that fit their needs. He also specializes in both commercial and contract surety bonding.
