Meet the President

Dakota E. Gagne started his insurance career in Southern Maine back in 2014, enlightening clients on the benefits of life insurance and Medicare insurance. Soon after, in fall 2015, Dakota decided to pursue a career in property and casualty insurance.

Over the past five years, Dakota has worked for both independent and captive insurance agencies. More recently, Dakota was the managing partner of a New Hampshire based insurance brokerage and soon founded Foreshore Insurance Brokers on the core values of integrity and knowledge.
