SCOTT Runyan

After three decades working in Aerospace Scott joined his family in purchasing Pacific Rim Agency from their close relative George Abbott. His background in the fast-paced and ever-changing world of that industry gives him ample skills to ensure that all of Pacific Rim’s customer will receive world-class service, the best information, and easy access to service.
Scott is a quick learner and already has picked up vast knowledge to assist his clients through a combination of good mentorship and his ability to learn rapidly. He understands how to get results for his clients and brings a positive, can-do attitude to work at the office each day.
When Scott isn’t busy working, he loves catching a sunny day on the golf course with his wife, Lisa. Scott, like his son Caleb, is an avid fisherman and the two of them relish the opportunity to get out on the water with a fishing pole in hand. Scott can also always find a smile spending time with his two dogs, Togi and Nola. And the biggest smile in his life is his new granddaughter.

George ABBOTT

In 1970 George started his insurance career with Prudential Insurance; this offered him a chance to lay the foundation for what came next. In 1973 George and his wife purchased Stan Edmark Insurance, Inc. They would go on to change the name to Pacific Rim Agency as this small-town insurance company became well known for helping clients all around the Pacific Coast.
The original goal for their business was to protect families and businesses throughout the region by offering friendly service, competitive rates, and a personal touch. They developed a great reputation for being the go-to insurance company for farms (a statement that is still true to this day).
George is still a key influential figure, even after selling the company to his relatives a few years back. His legacy continues and he still serves as an advisor helping ensure the tradition of excellence carries on into the future.
George enjoys spending his time sailing; he especially enjoys heading up the Washington Coast and sailing in the San Juan Islands and the Canadian Gulf Islands. Always a proud servant of the community, George still serves as the President of Colton Helping Hands, a non-profit food pantry.
