Designations/Certifications: CISC, CRIS
Tony Pozas joined the InterWest team in June, 2006, and was elevated to Vice President in 2015. Prior to his relationship with InterWest, he served as the Vice President of one of the largest residential remodeling firms in the state. During that time, he was involved with numerous charities and served on the Board of Directors for the local Boy’s and Girl’s Clubs of America. His career in sales began while working for U.S Foodservice in Reno, NV, where he assisted hotel and casino clients with the purchase of food and restaurant equipment. While living in Nevada, he had the privilege of joining the Rotary Club of Carson City.
Tony enjoys working with diversified groups and is always in search of the perfect insurance program for his clients. He is proactive in understanding the marketplace options, including alternative markets, group captives, self-insurance, retrospective rating and other risk transfer products. Early in his career, he realized that business owners continually struggle with Human Resources and Risk Management compliance, which ultimately impacts their direct insurance costs. In an ongoing effort to provide solutions to manage the exposures and reduce the overall risk potential, Tony effectively engages InterWest’s claims and risk control teams as well as services of the insurance carrier partners.
Continuing his education and knowledge in insurance has always been a priority. In 2007, Tony began his pursuit of multiple professional designations including Certified Insurance Specialist in Construction (CISC) and Construction Risk Insurance Specialist (CRIS). He has developed close relationships with risk managers and labor law attorneys to stay current with Cal & Fed OSHA regulations in his effort to help mitigate future losses for his clients. Tony continues to be active with various trade organizations including the Associated General Contractors (AGC), The Valley Contractors Exchange (VCE) and the Building Industry Association (BIA).
Tony is a native of the Napa Valley, but currently resides in Chico, CA with his wife and two children where they enjoy golfing, hunting and fishing with friends and family.
