As God would have it, a situation presented itself where Nate could walk away from a thriving, global business he had co-started three years earlier in soft goods, furniture and fixtures installations for hotel chains. Nate was compelled to commit his time fully to his Church and Catholic brethren and thus, began his career as a Knights of Columbus field agent in 2009.
Serving in that role until 2014, he helped approximately 1,000 Catholic families with their life insurance, retirement and long-term care needs. Something that, up until his appointment, had never happened in the LDS predominant Utah.
Nate ranked among the top 10 percent in national achievements year after year, earning him accolades from the highest in the Order, among them Carl Anderson, Knights of Columbus Supreme Knight. When the State of Arizona (recognized by the Knights as a hotbed for growth in the Catholic faith) became available for a partnership role, Nate was approached by Knights of Columbus headquarters in New Haven, Connecticut.
After some discernment and prayer with his wife, Angelina, Nate accepted the position; together, they began their Arizona adventure on July 1, 2014. Today, Nate currently manages a team of 13 agents that serve all Knights of Columbus families across Arizona, from Nogales to Page and Bullhead City to Show Low.
Nate and Angelina are filled with the Holy Spirit, knowing that the mission of Fr. McGivney to protect Catholic families and to invest ethically, is as true and relevant today as it was nearly 140 years ago.
Nate earned a Bachelor of Science in Economics and Business from the University of Utah. He and Angelina have three children (Quiana, Mathew and Noah) and three dogs (Jack, Louie and Buddy). They reside in the Ahwatukee Foothills where they attend St Benedict Catholic Church.
