MEET THE TEAM

A little about John and Colette Acosta...

John and Colette have been Mr. and Mrs. Acosta for 31 years this year!  Quite an accomplishment!  They are celebrating 26 years as local business owners as well!  Prior to their lives as business owners, John had enlisted in the USAF and was stationed at Plattsburgh Air Force Base in Plattsburgh, NY.  Colette joined him after they married in April of 1990.  Once their family started to grow, moving back to Indiana was inevitable to be close to family and John transitioned to the Air Guard Reserves in Battlecreek, MI.  It was at that time that John began his career in the insurance industry at Salem Insurance Agency in Goshen, IN. It was only a short time before he desired owning his own insurance agency.  In 1995, Acosta Insurance Agency, Inc. originated from just a small home office in Goshen.  Colette became an agent in 1996 to join John in startup of the business.  The agency has grown tremendously.  Since its origination, it is now an independent insurance agency representing several quality insurance companies and is headquartered in Dunlap to provide convenience to Elkhart and Goshen residents and businesses.  Currently, John manages the Sales and Marketing aspects of Acosta Insurance beyond filling his lead role as President of the agency.  Colette is the CFO and supports John's role as Vice President, overseeing the daily operations of the agency.  They both strive daily to improve claims processing and increase customer satisfaction.  With continual growth, the addition of knowledgeable, dedicated staff members and a wonderful clientele evolved.  John and Colette encourage you to learn a little more about the team at Acosta Insurance Agency, Inc. to understand why they feel confident that you will want to consider them as the provider of all your insurance needs.
