Kreg Foster

Background: I was born and raised in Webster City. Upon graduating from the University of Iowa with a degree in insurance, I worked for Johnson & Higgens of Texas from 1986 until 1990. I returned to Webster City and worked for Crosley & Foster from1990 until 2005 when I opened Foster Insurance. My wife Lori and I have three children, Brody, Connor and Haley.

Why I do what I do: I enjoy serving as a resource for people with insurance related-questions, whether or not they are clients. It's the personal relationships and the flexibility that come with the job I enjoy the most. I became very passionate about the business early in life and followed my father, Vern Foster, into the business. It was a natural fit.

What makes my job unique: I get to see a variety of clients and their insurance needs. From trucking to manufacturing, from new homes to older homes, from health insurance to annuities. As an independent agent, I can work with several different carriers to make sure my clients get the best fit for their needs.

How I get away from work: I enjoy golfing, boating and attending Hawkeye Football games. I also spend a lot of time at my childrens' activities.

How I give back to my community: I am very active in my church, the Knights of Columbus, and the Hamilton Hospital Foundation Board.

My mentor was: There are several different people who have inspired me throughout life. Charlie Weieneth showed me the importance of laughter in life, my father inspired most of my business philosophy and my wife inspires me every day.
