Rich “Big Daddy” Salgado sells insurance policies to the some of the biggest professional athletes in the NFL, the NHL, the NBA, the MLB, and the MMA. He is the CEO and president of Coastal Advisors, LLC.
Big Daddy doesn’t see himself as brokering insurance; he sells peace of mind to clientele, which include some of the most famous stars in sports. He also is a frequent guest on Fox TV, appearing on the Fox and Friends segment of news broadcasts.
Big Daddy took time out from his busy schedule to talk with JL's James Rothaar about his past, the growth of his business, and how it grew to its current status. The man is a gentleman who is as kind-hearted as he is large.
James Rothaar: Give me your mission statement in 30 seconds or less, your elevator pitch. Tell me what makes you special. What is it that distinguishes you?
Rich “Big Daddy” Salgado: I find the best products at the best price, and the best value for each individual. That is a promise that I carry with me at all times. It doesn’t matter what business that you are in. I treat everybody the same. Whether you are a famous athlete, a big star, the owner of a pizza shop, or a busboy working at a pizza shop.
