In 1949Paul Imeson opened his insurance office, Paul Imeson Agency.
Raised in Kapowsin on his family dairy farm, Paul understood the farming community that populated the rich soil of the Puyallup Valley. His ambition to build his business was driven by spending a few hours each evening knocking on doors to introduce himself and his insurance services. His calm demeanour and humble presence related well with the farmers and defined his stable reputation.
His daughter, Susan Machen joined the agency in 1981. Born in Puayllup and raised in the Seattle area, she returned with her husband to follow in her father's footsteps while raising two daughters.
After 53 years, Paul retired in 2002 and spent winters in Palm Springs soaking up the sun. With Paul's passing in 2009 Susan continues his legacy to serve the community.
