Stephen Ross

CEO of Ross Insurance Brokers, Inc

I’m originally from New Zealand, where I began my insurance career over 20 years ago. 12 years ago, I became a Dave Ramsey Endorsed Provider because I could combine my desire to help people through their financial journey using the various insurances that Dave Ramsey recommends. My wife and I have 2 adult children and we are actively involved in our church. I especially love mentoring men through small groups, helping people with their small business, mountain climbing, BBQ and biking outdoors.

Life and Health Insurance Advisor – Small group

I believe that the key to success is through genuine care. Understanding what people need, hearing their situation, and finding a solution is what fills my heart! My goal is not only to build relationships with each client, but also to help them get lasting results to help them feel successful over their own lives! I have 7 years of customer service experience and I’d say that with this involvement, I have learned the essentials of communicating well with others and relating to their needs. In college, I took up Intercultural Business Communications and Theology. Being in a business degree, I have really enjoyed working with businesses with building comprehensive benefits packages for their teams to help with their employee retention and engagement. I really look forward to serving you with all your insurance needs.

With over twelve years of experience, I specialize in customer relations. I am ambitious and eager to continue to serve others. I am from Portland, Oregon and love to spend my time lost in the pages of a good book. I grew up in a small family business; where having insurance wasn’t always our reality. My heart is to help families reach financial security. Most of my professional career has been split between customer relations and teaching. This has given me a unique perspective to help others through their insurance journeys. I am excited to serve you and help you to turn your goals into reality.

Our Story

I was born and raised in New Zealand. I completed Bible college in World Missions at the age of 24 in Singapore. My hope was to be involved in the missions in Asia. I was newly married and needed to find a job that would provide for my family and so I had to put missions on hold to establish a family in New Zealand.
In 1998, I was offered an opportunity as an Insurance Agent and thought I would give it a try. I found that I really enjoyed getting to know each family member and having the ability to design an insurance plan that would meet their specific needs and budget. This began my passion for helping families and individuals through the insurance industry, as well as living, as an example of faith in the business world.

My family and I decided to relocate to Portland Oregon in 2002, where I began working for New York Life. During that time, I took Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University through my church. This class totally changed my way of thinking towards insurance and inspired me to work independently. In 2003, I quit New York Life and began the adventure of Ross Insurance Brokers out of my garage. By 2007, Ross Insurance Brokers was officially incorporated! I then focused on building a team that allowed the company to expand into other lines of insurance. I have found that each team member has their own strength which provides a better client experience. Teamwork is a very important value of who we are today!

I loved what I had learned through Dave Ramsey’s programs and decided that I wanted to partner with his company, Ramsey Solutions. I became a Dave Ramsey Health Endorsed Local Provider for Oregon in 2011 and quickly expanded to several states. My heart was to make sure everyone would get the best value and price for their policies. I approached each policy as if I were purchasing them myself and applied the common knowledge that Dave Ramsey talks about.

Business for Ross Insurance Brokers, Inc. continued to grow. We have been in the business for 22 years now and we are working hard to continuously provide excellent care for our customers. We are a Dave Ramsey Health ELP in 14 states. We now have a full team dedicated to making sure that every client is provided with education and genuine care for their specific journey. My goal as the CEO and President of Ross Insurance Brokers, Inc. is to show that we value people before profit, we will be innovative in our solutions to meet each individual’s needs, and will strive for excellence in all that we do.

With my wife from Singapore and my heart for missions it’s our desire to use our company to give back into the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves in Asia. Today, both my children Josh and Grace works with me as we grow this mission to help families around the world.

With Covid, our team has changed. We used to have an office but we have found that even working remotely we are able to work more effectively and are able to serve our clients efficiently. Our team is located throughout the country and in the Philippines where we can give back to the community.

We look forward to beginning a journey with you!

Grace was so extremely patient and helpful and explained everything in a way that made sense. She took our insurance situation from being completely overwhelming and confusing and turned it into something that made sense, that we could afford, and that I have peace about.
