It seems like I was born with a desk at Leonard Adams Company. My grandfather Leonard Adams, my mother’s father, started the business in 1933, when Beaverton was mostly wheat fields. My father, Brian, started with the agency in 1965 and has been bringing me to the office for as long as I can remember, whether it was for pushing a broom, moving furniture, painting offices, working on files or landscaping the grounds, the office has always been a part of my life. After graduating from Oregon State in 1984, I started my insurance career with Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company, and in 1989 I began working as an agent with Leonard Adams Company. Fortunately I married Sheri, my college sweetheart who still makes ‘my world go round’. We have seven wonderful and active kids (Brian/Univ. of Oregon, Sean/ Univ. of Montana, Meagan/ Carrol College, Danny, Erin, Ronan and Molly) who keep our lives full and exciting, never missing an opportunity to surprise us with another of life’s challenges. It is truly a joy watching them all grow and chase their dreams. Some family interests include skiing, golfing, basketball, hiking, sock your brother in the arm, water sports, exploring the Northwest and just good old family time together.
“As a global wood products distribution company, we have employed the services of Sean Dooney and Leonard Adams Company for well over 20 years. Sean’s, as well as all the fine staff at Leonard Adams, professionalism and dedication to client service is the standard for the industry.”
“In the 20 years we’ve worked with Sean Dooney and Leonard Adams, we’ve come to rely on him and his agency not just as an insurance agent, but as a deeply trusted advisor who knows our business and always keeps our best interests in mind. His familiarity with the perils and challenges of business ownership have been invaluable to us as we’ve grown and changed, always keeping us one step ahead of the game, and prepared for risks we sometimes weren’t even aware of. His combination of expertise and concern is incredibly rare these days, and one of the reasons we continue to succeed as a company.”
