All You Ever Wanted to Know About Insurance

Welcome, Jonathan and Pete!

The month of June welcomed two new faces to our office, Pete Riedel and Jonathan Bicker!

Pete Riedel moved to the Vancouver area in 2002 after graduating from Bemidji State University in northern Minnesota with a B.S in Mass Communication. Before moving over to the Insurance industry, Pete spent time working with cutting edge software and in Property Management. He has also served as a Sergeant in the Oregon Army National Guard 115th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment as a broadcast journalist. His role at Davidson & Associates Insurance is a new adventure for Pete seeing as it his first time working in insurance! He is looking forward to learning his client’s business, identifying risks, and providing protection against future losses. Outside of working, Pete’s time is mostly spent with his wife, Amanda and two children Chelsea and Sam. On the weekends, he can be found cheering on the Ducks, fishing, or smoking pork butts! Welcome to the team, Pete—we’re glad you’re here!


Jonathan Bicker was born and raised in Portland, OR. After studying at the Tacoma branch of the
University of Washington, he moved back to Vancouver to marry his now-wife, Kaile. Although Jonathan is new to our agency, he is not new to insurance! Jonathan has spent the past year working in the industry and is looking forward to being a part of a team that is genuinely serving one another, their clients, and the greater community! Jonathan self-identifies as a “people person” which drives his work—building relationships with people, providing them a product that will not only help them, but help them in a time when they need help the most. When Jonathan isn’t working, he enjoys watching, reviewing, or reading almost every type of media (movies, books, videogames, podcasts, television). He also enjoys writing and was graced with the honor of having a short story published in the University of Washington’s literary journal! We’re excited to welcome Jonathan to our team—you are a great addition!
