Fred brings with him nearly a decade of experience and thorough understanding of the industry, both on the commercial side as well as personal lines.
“Insurance is an incredibly important thing, no matter what your socioeconomic status is. Without insurance, the developed world’s economies would not be what they are today. Insurance is not only the backbone but also the heart of our economy and our success as a nation. Be it billion dollar businesses or a young couple purchasing their first renters policy on an apartment. I believe in what I do and it feels good to know I have the potential to help people. I am very excited to be a part of a great organization like the Carpenter Agency and look forward to introducing Oklahoma City business owners and families to their way of doing business.”
Fred attended the University of Oklahoma and is a member of Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity. He is married with three children and his family attends Church of the Servant in northwest Oklahoma City. Away from the office, Fred enjoys spending time with family and friends. He especially enjoys cooking with his wife at home, time outdoors doing just about anything, Sooner athletics and Thunder basketball.
