Our Crestline Team

Insurance Agent

James Newkirk

Starting his carrier with AAA Insurance, James has been working in insurance for 20 years and has been specializing in Business/Commercial Insurance for the last 17.  In June of 2014, James, his wife Paulette, and their partner Vance Grubb, opened their own agency, Crestline Insurance Services, LLC.  Crestline’s goal is to protect Small Business in all lines of their business insurance needs, so their Clients can focus on what’s important to them, namely running their Businesses.  

Cyber Liability Insurance is becoming more important as our society becomes more and more dependent on technology, and James feels that within the next 5 years it will be a required coverage. 

He enjoys spending time with his wife, Paulette.  Time with friends.  And with learning and growing as an individual and as a business owner.
