Ken Price, CPCU
Vice President and Chief Operating Officer
Ken Price joined KPD Insurance in 2013 as a Select Commercial Lines Producer. He then served as the Operations Manager until his recent assignment as the Chief Operating Officer. Ken is the son of Gordon Price, one of KPD’s founders. Ken grew up in Junction City, Oregon and received his Bachelors of Science Degree from Oregon State University with a Major in Business Management. Ken also earned the CPCU designation in 1995 from the Insurance Institute of America.
Prior to joining KPD Insurance, Ken began his 30+ year insurance career on the carrier side of the business with Nationwide Insurance as a Claims Adjuster. From that start, Ken has held various carrier Regional Management positions in the areas of Claims, Operations, Underwriting, Sales, and Product Management. These assignments took Ken and his family all over the United States including stops in Portland, Denver, Chicago, Tampa, Detroit and Sacramento.
After experiencing all the carrier side of the business had to offer, Ken settled his family back in the Eugene area and began his agency career. After deciding not purchase into a local agency, Ken joined KPD Insurance and he looks forward to no other moves until the end of his career. Ken has been married to his college sweetheart, Suzanne, for over 32 years and together they have two children who both graduated from the University of Oregon. When Ken is not camping or hiking with Suzanne, he will most likely be salmon fishing in the ocean or on the Siuslaw River. Ken is also involved with the Education Together Foundation to help raise scholarship funds for the Tiger Alumni Association.
