Hi, I'm Craig Strickland, Agency Manager at Farm Bureau Financial Services in Lincoln, NE. I've been in the insurance industry for the past six years and became an Agency Manager with Farm Bureau in May 2015.
Prior to insurance, I spent 10 years in the Arena Football League as a player and coach. My first seven years were spent as a quarterback in Tulsa, Detroit, Dallas, and Oklahoma City. The final three years I was an offensive coordinator for the Tulsa Talons.
I've been married to my wife, Jae, for 12 years. We have two children - our daughter, Kate (11) and our son, Jake (6). Outside of work, my hobbies include golf, spending time with my family, and attending sporting events.
My approach to managing is to hire and train quality individuals to create a great team atmosphere. I have a passion for motivating individuals and watching them grow and having success. I have a hands-on approach when it comes to mentoring agents. My goal is to provide each individual with the support they need to be a successful business owner. I believe Farm Bureau has the best support program in the industry. I work with key individuals from every line of business to ensure each agent is given the support needed to grow.
Farm Bureau has an outstanding reputation when it comes to community involvement. Our team is involved with countless activities across the state to support urban and rural communities, individuals and business owners. We will continue to follow the lead of the individuals who created this outstanding culture.
