Marcella Hampp and James (Jim) Brown have worked together since the early 1990's in insuring our client's horses and horse related activities. Our relationship grew in 2006 when we partnered up to provide coverage for our clients and their needs which always COME FIRST.

Our name “Segundo” comes from the Spanish language and means “Second”. It was used on the trail herds coming north by the cowhands. They called the Trail Boss Segundo.

Insuring your horses, your property, vehicles, farm and ranch, are always our First Priority. We bring many years of experience and knowledge to help you accomplish your goals.

Marcella C Hampp

Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Horse owner. Regained her working career in 1974 in banking industry then in 1981 in the insurance industry obtaining license in Property & Casualty and Life & Health eventually working my way up to President and Owner of an Insurance Agency.

After her children were grown and on their own, recaptured the interest and became once again a horse owner. Seeing the need for protection for any bodily harm or property damage my horses could do and in covering the value of the amount of money purchasing my horses I sought out carriers through General Agencies at that time to help myself and clients as well who had Farm, Ranch, Stables, Show horses and Personal horse exposure.

Segundo, Inc was established March 5, 2004. In 2006 we found a partner in James H. Brown with the experience and expertise needed to obtain long standing companies that understood the need we wanted to provide our existing and potential customers.

After 27 years in the insurance industry I find there is never a dull moment and especially enjoy personal contact with the horse industry.
