Robert Gammenthaler – Associate Partner
Robert Gammenthaler is the newest agent of the ChurchWest team. He joined the agency in 2011 as a Field Underwriter…going out and visiting ministries to help provide replacement estimates for their insurance needs. It was a great foundation to understand the unique properties owned by churches, but he soon found that he was drawn to working with the people in ministry. In 2014, he transitioned to the role of agent and moved to Northern California. Despite growing up in the South, the move was an easy one, and while he fits in well in his new hometown you will still catch him opening doors and letting slip a “ya’ll” now and again.
For Rob, each new day presents a new and welcomed challenge in his job. In order to meet those challenges better, he is in the process of obtaining his CPCU – A higher certification beyond typical qualifications. On the weekends you will find him watching or playing sports, visiting the Redwoods, or at his church, where he is active in heading up new ministries and leading praise through music.
When asked how he would describe his job, he says – “I help protect churches to the best of my ability. Safeguarding ministry is what I do”. His desire is to make certain that ministry continues, even in the setting of an unfortunate event. “Spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ is of the upmost importance, and that should never be interrupted”.
