Nick Quaid

Nick Quaid started with Pacific Group in 2013.  Paul Gaarenstroom and Nick met while Nick was a Regional Sales Manager for California Choice, the nation’s leading Private Exchange company.   He had spent the first 13 years of his career working there, doing everything from data entry, underwriting, renewal, and sales.  While working in sales, Nick was able to learn from a variety of brokers throughout California to see what works best.  He quickly found Pacific Group was the right fit for the next stage of his career.  “Paul has been an amazing mentor for me, and while working with what seems like every broker and agency in California for years, he stood out as someone I could grow and learn from. Joining forces was the best career decision I have made.”

Nick’s current role is Vice President of Sales. He manages the sales and renewals for all Pacific Group clients, working hand in hand with the dedicated team of account managers.  In the past 4 years, Nick has also opened an additional office in Northwest Arkansas, one of the nation’s fastest growing areas.  He is racking up the airline miles by splitting his time between both offices.

“I truly feel we have the best team out there.  It’s nice coming to “work” every day and enjoying what you do AND the people you work with.  We are a family through and through. Alma, Cheriss, Alanna, Ashley, and Debney are truly talented and special people. I feel lucky to get to work with each of them every day.”

When he isn’t working, he is enjoying his time with his two daughter’s Reagan and Ellie, who are becoming quite the athletes.  Both are competitive cheerleaders and Ellie also plays travel softball…so his time is filled cheering them on.  During their off time, they all love boating, snowboarding, and golf (well, Nick loves golf, the girls haven’t quite caught the bug yet.)  They are Bulldog FANATICS and have a 3-year-old English Bulldog named Winston.  He sleeps most of the time, but with their hectic schedule, that’s exactly what they need!
