Shane Phelps

Shane provides risk transfer solutions and support to the Mountain West Investment team. Shane is a native Oregonian and has worked in the Insurance and Risk Management community in both Salem and Portland. Over the past fifteen years, Shane has developed a strong understanding of risk transfer methods. Prior to joining Mountain West, he worked for a large national insurance firm and the experience gave him a deep appreciation and understanding of the methods commonly used to transfer and reduce risks. Shane also holds an Oregon Property Casualty insurance license.

While Shane finds his work gratifying, his family is his greatest priority. Shane and his wife, Laurie, enjoy living in South Salem and raising their two children. Shane’s family believes strongly in supporting local non-profit organizations. These include Make-a-Wish of Oregon, Family Building Blocks and the South Salem Saxon Baseball Foundation.
