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.
"They assist us in so many critical areas of our business that we consider them to be a valuable member of our management team. In an addition to providing valuable financial products, service and counsel for general and product liability, umbrella, and workers' compensation insurance, they also provide a wide array of products and services in the employee benefits area. Some of these services include benefits benchmarking, communications, compliance, employee advocacy, health and wellness programs and plan consulting services, particularly for health insurance. We communicate with them regularly to stay abreast of current issues in an ever-changing human resources and benefits environment. We believe that they care about what they do, how they do it and the people they do it for. I would readily and heartily recommend KPD Insurance to anyone seeking these types of products and/or services."- Jerry Cunningham, VP and CFO, Rexius Forest By-Products, Inc
“KPD has been a tremendous support and solution to all of our needs. More importantly, we feel that they are a member of our Team. Our strategy is more than a regional presence, we have a national roll-out program and KPD brings a deep toolbox to manage our Worker’s Compensation programs, training, case management and solutions.”- Greg Roderick, CEO, Frontier Management, LLC
“Evan, and in fact the entire KPD crew, have been consistent in offering quality insurance options to meet the ever-changing needs of our company. The customer service provided is top notch and Evan goes above and beyond to ensure that we have excellent coverage at competitive prices. In a complicated and complex industry, KPD Insurance has been a breath of fresh air.”- Lauren Umbdenstock, Operations Manager, T.T. & L. Sheet Metal, Inc.
“KPD Insurance has acted as our company’s bonding agent for over two decades. Their knowledge, expertise and attention to detail have been vital in securing payment and performance bonds for our company. I feel confident recommending the bond department at KPD Insurance. Their entire staff is trustworthy, thorough, easy to work with, and always provides exceptional service.”- Scott Omlid, CCIFP, Roger Langeliers Construction Co.
"I initially choose to work with KPD Insurance because they are an Oregon-grown local company. They truly embody the cliché that Oregonians are nice people – all of my interactions with associates at KPD Insurance have been kind, professional, and beyond helpful. I have recommended KPD to several friends and colleagues and will continue to send folks their way!"- Lori Magee, Lead Universal Associate, Umpqua Bank

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
