Insurance is Personal


We are not in this industry to make business transactions.

Our focus has always been more human. We’re here to help people and businesses protect what they care about. So we partner with clients, build lasting relationships, and work together to find personalized solutions. We’ve brought together a team of experts who don’t hesitate to push up their sleeves and do whatever it takes to get the job done right—an idea at the heart of the can-do spirit for which Team Kandu gets its name.

From the CEO

“I’d like to thank you for visiting the k.p.d. insurance website.  We recognize there are many places you can go to get help with your insurance and risk management needs. 

Today, k.p.d. is one of the largest independent insurance firms in the Northwest.  In 1979, our founders left large national organizations to create additional opportunity for their clients and for themselves.  The founders wanted an opportunity to control their own destiny.  Fast forward to today and we continue to fiercely defend this nimble approach which only a locally-owned, private, company can.  Each day, the employees of k.p.d strive to live by the Mission, Values, and Vision statements you can find here on our site.

We are proud of our history and excited about our future.  We sincerely appreciate your partnership and the opportunity to provide each client with measured value.”

Kyle Hudson, CIC
Chief Executive Officer
