About Scott Wilson

Scott Wilson joined the Crane Agency in 2007. Scott entered the insurance industry in 1994, after graduating from Northwest Missouri State with degrees in Business management and Marketing.

Scott’s career began aiding retail centers, contractors, and manufacturers. In 2002, Scott launched Best Shot Insurance (BSI) that focuses to this day on the Outdoor Insurance and Hospitality Industry. The development of BSI was inspired by Scott owning his own guiding business and working with carriers to develop an affordable yet comprehensive program at that time to meet his needs. Since then, Scott has expanded his programs into the Firearms industry, campgrounds, hunting preserves, lodges, and outdoor not-for-profits.

Scott currently serves as an Insurance Broker, allowing him to be an advocate to his clients in seeking the specific coverage needs through his alliances with a plethora of carriers. Backed by the Crane Agency’s support system and its staff, which supports his clients with claims, loss control, and other resources.
