Since 2006, Darin Vega has simultaneously run numerous companies while hosting a radio show called Movers and Shakers on talk-radio station KWTO in Missouri. The purpose was to highlight nonprofit organizations, promoting their causes and their needs. With that objective, Darin recruited many celebrities and successful company heads to appear on his radio show, including Brad Pitt‘s brother Doug promoting the Jolie/Pitt foundation. His goal was to learn about nonprofits and the actions they were taking to boost awareness, funds and volunteers.
In 2010, Darin relocated to the Florida Panhandle and continued his radio show, renaming it “Good Morning Emerald Coast.” On every weekly episode, he hosted five nonprofit heads to support their causes. Through this process, he came to realize that immigrants encountered many additional hurdles and frequent exploitation due to their language barriers, mostly involving insurance and legal issues. This realization led him to find another way to uplift immigrants.
On April 20th 2010, the oil spill from the BP ship, Deepwater Horizon, struck the Gulf Coast. As a result, BP became obligated to pay $20 billion in damages to both affected fishermen and businesses. Darin teamed up with Public Adjuster JL Evans to help claimants -– many of whom spoke limited English – to find legal representation to handle their BP oil-spill claims. Over the years, Darin has helped immigrants and American natives to settle millions of dollars’ worth of fishing-subsistence claims and business economic-loss claims, working with many attorneys along the Gulf Coast.
With almost 25 years of combined experience and under the company names of the BP Claims Group, JLR Building Works and others, Darin has continued to work with Public Adjuster JL Evans to help all ethnicities find competent legal representation for both personal injury claims – such as from auto accidents – as well as property and casualty claims due to hurricanes, wind storms, fires, floods, and more. Together they have earned over $50 million in client settlements.
Darin has also focused on other business endeavors including a pharmacy-supply firm, a disposable medical products company with international reach, real estate, and others. In addition, he serves on advisory boards and has held positions of CEO, President, Vice President with several companies such as China Medline and Pulse Medical Finance.
His latest venture, IGIC, accelerates and strengthens his desire to get people with limited resources or limited English the full value of their personal injury, property and casualty claims … teaming with expert lawyers and Auerbach International, one of the world’s oldest and most reputable language agencies, to provide interpreting and translation services for both immigrant clients and their attorneys.
