Ethan is an account executive in our Commercial Department, working with clients in the Food, Beverage & Agribusiness and Manufacturing Practice Groups. These include food and meat processors, apple growers, seafood processors, and frozen vegetable and various manufacturers. As an account executive, he leads the effort in combining the resources available within our firm to tailor insurance programs to meet the risk management needs of the clients he serves.

Since joining Parker, Smith & Feek, Ethan has managed insurance programs for clients mostly in the Food, Beverage & Agribusiness and Manufacturing marketplace. Managing these programs has allowed him the opportunity to guide clients through their risk management efforts with a proactive approach to risk control, claims management, negotiations with underwriters, and mitigation of risks present in food and manufacturing operations.

Ethan joined Parker, Smith & Feek in the beginning of 2023, departing a strong, national brokerage firm as the operations leader for their Native American Practice Group. His years in that role have given him experience and understanding in multiple lines of insurance coverage for the various business operations and ventures the Native American Tribes explored. He has extensive knowledge of municipalities, casino gaming, hospitality, construction, seafood distribution, cannabis, and entertainment. He brings his expertise of working in a challenging market segment and building insurance and risk management programs for small to large-scale operations.

Ethan believes that continuing his insurance education is vital to staying ahead of new and emerging risks. He is currently pursuing the CPLP (Cyber Professional Liability Practitioner) designation. Community involvement is an important aspect of his lifestyle. He has served as a Junior Counselor for the Washington State Association for Secondary Principals, as well as coaching at the Junior Mustangs summer camps for Redmond High School. During his time at Washington State University, he was a leading member of the cheer team and organized fundraising events for the cheer team and women’s sports teams.
