Joel started his insurance career here at Hecht & Hecht back in 2001. He was raise in the restaurant business and spent his first career involved in many aspects of that industry including graduating from Western Culinary Institute, now Le Cordon Bleu, and working in some of Portland’s more notable restaurants before Larry sold him on the idea working a 9-5 job helping people protect themselves with insurance.

While in California he continued to work in the insurance industry as a broker specializing in commercial property and construction while building business partnerships and industry relationships. Now back in the Northwest he is excited with the explosion of growth here and the diversity that this region has to offer. Always one to take a service first approach to insurance solutions we are thrilled to have him back at Hecht & Hecht as part of our commercial team.
