Global Ag Insurance Services, a California-based crop insurance provider focused on western specialty crop producers, is pleased to welcome Senior Claims Adjuster Billy Dhami to the team. A third-generation California farmer, Dhami has deep roots in the agricultural community and extensive experience as a crop insurance claims adjuster. “My grandfather and father taught me to work hard and treat your crops like children. You should nurture them until they mature. I love working in the California ag community. I get to meet other growers and farmers who love doing what they do as much as I do.”
Dhami will primarily oversee the northern California territory and prides himself on an all-around knowledge when it comes to specialty crops. Beginning his career nearly a decade ago with Rain and Hail Insurance Services, Dhami has experience working with a broad range of crops and commodities across the state. His knowledge and expertise with MPCI and named peril programs, as well as his experience training other claims adjusters, will enable Dhami and his team to provide industry-leading service to the growers and agents of Global Ag in the Northern California region.
In addition to his industry-specific experience, Dhami holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from Sacramento State University. Doug Ollenberger, Vice-President of Claims and Loss Adjusting stated, “It’s great to have someone with Billy’s experience working the northern counties. His extensive knowledge of the crops and challenges of farmers up north is invaluable. With adjusters of Billy’s caliber onboard, we believe Global Ag will set a new standard for service in the crop insurance industry.”
A producer of walnuts, peaches and prunes himself, Dhami has a unique understanding of the challenges facing growers and producers in the western United States. He presently serves on the Board of the California Canning Peach Association and is actively involved in the Cling Peach Association. When’s he’s not in the field Dhami can be found coaching his son’s youth basketball team. Dhami concluded, “I’m thrilled to join the capable and dedicated team at Global Ag. I think their commitment to growers and producers in the western United States clearly separates them from other crop insurance companies.”
