Jake Weisman, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

I’m a Regional Territory Manager with Hagerty, working to provide enthusiasts with collector vehicle insurance in Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs. Growing up in Ponte Vedra FL and having one of the biggest gear heads around as a father has given me exposure to a plethora of vehicles! You see, the thing that’s great about being a FL car guy is that you can enjoy the hobby year round! As I was growing up my dad and I had all sorts of cars that we tinkered with, from Corvettes to Mustangs, a Factory 5 Cobra, Cadillacs, BMWs and even a Nissan Skyline to name a few. As Magnus Walker would say – “Get out and drive!” that’s what we love to do!

From a very young age I had my heart set on working in the Automobile Industry and have focused my career accordingly starting with one of the largest automotive parts wholesalers in the southeast, working as a field sales representative for Continental Tire and now taking on my current role as Regional Territory Manager of Philadelphia for Hagerty.

What is unique about the hobby in your territory?

The best part about the hobby in Pennsylvania is the fact that you have exposure to some of the largest shows and swap meets in the country. With Hershey and Carlisle in our back yard, the high caliber events that they put on attracts some serious hardware and enthusiasts!

No, no, he didn’t slam you, he didn’t bump you, he didn’t nudge you… he rubbed you. And rubin, son, is racin’."Harry Hogge, Days of Thunder

Why Hagerty? What excites you about what we do?

Hagerty is a company that truly practices what they preach. From an employee perspective, I’ve never been around some many passionate car guys and gals in one professional environment. Hagerty’s brand message truly encompasses what the hobby is all about, I’m proud to be part of that!

Favorite car event of the year

It’s tough to put my finger on a favorite event, I’m a HUGE motorsports enthusiast, so anytime I can get to the racetrack I’m happy! The Rolex 24 at Daytona and the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance are two of my favorites that I attend with my family every year. A track day or an autocross is top on my list too!
