As we celebrate our 100th anniversary, we salute the visionary who started it all: G.J. Mecherle. It was his belief that farmers shouldn't have to pay the same prices for insurance that city dwellers did, which set State Farm apart ⁠— and put us on our Good Neighbor trajectory.

I am a native Southern Californian, who was born and raised in the Valley. My wife Marisa and I have been married for over 26 years, and have two amazing children. After High School, I attended Pierce College, then transferred and graduated from the University of California at Los Angeles, in 1989, with a BA in Psychology. During college, I worked with my father, Larry Malmsten, who was a State Farm agent for 50 years. After graduating, I started with State Farm in claims, and now have proudly been associated with State Farm for 30 years, with 8 years of Auto, Homeowners and Catastrophe Claims, and 22 years as an Agent.
