In Focus: Matt Rinn, State Farm Insurance

Aug 29, 2016 09:46AM ● By Elena Hutslar

Over the last eight years, Matt Rinn has built a thriving State Farm agency in Pleasant Hill and become a well-known face in the community, dedicating time to civic events, business and service organizations, schools, and youth sports leagues. Matt and his wife, Ashley, moved to Pleasant Hill with their two young daughters, Madison and Emily, shortly after he began with State Farm in 2010. He recalls, “Spending so much time working in the city started to feel like home and a perfect, caring community to raise my family. We relocated from Dublin and have been loving it ever since.”


Matt has garnered a reputation as a trusted business leader by serving on multiple boards, as past president of the Pleasant Hill Rotary, and in several roles within the Pleasant Hill Chamber of Commerce, including chairman of the board. He credits his familiarity with community leaders and the business culture for the easy transition and success in working with the various organizations and committees on which he has served. “I already interact frequently with most of the people I serve with,” he says, “so we have a good working relationship and can get a lot accomplished.”


Volunteering is a way of life that Matt and Ashley are passing on to their daughters. The girls are very proud of the work they do locally and often point out things the family has worked on together. “We hope we’re teaching them that when you volunteer you can really learn a lot, [he crosses his fingers] and that giving back to our community just makes it a better place.”  


When not volunteering in the community, Matt is busy in the insurance world running his agency. He really enjoys helping people navigate the complexities of insurance. Like his recent bus stop advertisement on Gregory Lane says, “He speaks fluent insurance.”  So, if you need a quote or help, give him a call anytime at 925-671-0222 or visit
