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.

Do something today that your future self will thank you for and I sure did!

Nothing motivates me more than knowing that my family, friends, and community have peace of mind in being good stewards of their resources.

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!

Sheri Louthan

I needed medical insurance and discovered that Obamacare was unaffordable. I tried Dave Ramsey’s ELP program, and was contacted by Ross Insurance Brokers. I was able to reduce my medical, home, and auto insurance costs, and I was treated professionally in the process.
