Letter from the President

To Our Valued Customers,

In 1918, my grandfather started a wholesale insurance business premised solely on the idea that the industry was fundamentally relationship driven. He felt that success in the insurance industry was contingent on his ability to develop relationships. Grandpa was right. His company grew quickly and eventually perpetuated until the early 1990’s after my father and his partners instilled those values further and took the company to new heights as one of the largest wholesale firms in the country.

When starting Western Pacific in 2003, I realized the need for a specialty broker in the Rocky Mountain Region that could serve Independent Agents and their contractor clients with products and programs unlike they had experienced in the past. There was no doubt in my mind, though, that Western Pacific was going to be founded with the same principles and customer-driven philosophies that my grandfather and father had in mind. I’m proud to say Western Pacific has passed its ten year anniversary, with several new faces and certainly more capabilities, but our values have never changed.

My deepest gratitude is extended for all of our Agency and Carrier partners that have supported our company through the years. We would not be here today without your unwavering support, and words truly cannot express my appreciation of the relationship we have formed. The future, though, is incredibly bright . I look forward to growing with you as our relationships only continue to thrive.

Best Regards,


Roger “Rick” Richter, Jr.


President – Western Pacific Insurance Network, Inc.
