BUSINESS & Personal Insurance Agent

Since 2010

Pete Fisk

Pete came to Western Agency after teaching at the elementary and middle school level. He quickly used his teaching skills to help business owners understand how to minimize or manage risks and began specializing in commercial insurance in 2013. Along with his top producer awards, Pete says his greatest reward is helping build a policy that is tailored specifically to his client’s business. 

When he’s not helping clients, he’s at the rink playing a pick-up game, coaching for the Minot Hockey Boosters or watching his sons play hockey. When it’s not hockey season, it’s soccer season in support of his favorite soccer players or mountain biking/fat tire biking on the local trails. He gives back as a committee member for the Minot Legends Soccer Association, a council member for his church, and volunteers as a Sunday morning Sunday school teacher and mentor for 10th-grade confirmation students.  

Pete is proud to be a part of the Western Agency team because of how he can work to make sure his clients are protected.
