Bob began his career in the insurance industry with Mutual of Omaha in 1975. In 1980 Bob was asked by the ownership of Strachota Insurance to open a Health & Life Department within the Agency. The owners at the time were Susie Hemme and Jerry Hemme; his grandmother and father.
Through the 80’s Bob moved into Commercial Insurance and enrolled into the Certified Insurance Counselor (CIC) program. Achieving the CIC designation in 1992, Bob has retained it for over 30 years with required annual updates.
His grandmother retired from the company in 1984 and his father in 1992 after achieving extensive growth together including two offices in Colton, California and the newly formed office in Temecula, California. Bob grew Strachota Insurance over the years alongside a dynamic team and today Strachota Insurance has 5 locations; 4 being satellite offices with the ability to offer services in all 50 states. Bob continues to service his clients today along with mentoring producers and other team members within the agency, reflecting his passion for the industry.
Bob and his wife Carrie, share the love of four children and fourteen grandchildren with a great desire for adventure and travel. They also share a deep passion for philanthropic work through Rotary International.
