Who We Are

Spectrum is owned and operated by Robert Holmes.  Robert began his professional career as a research meteorologist, studying the weather and climate of Antarctica.  After nine trips to Antarctica for field research, earning awards from the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Navy, honored with the naming of the geographical feature Holmes Ridge, and publishing several research articles, Robert left academia for a Fortune 100 company to take on a new challenge: weather risk management.

After over a decade of providing weather risk solutions to some of this country’s largest corporations to providing weather insurance to small town festivals, fairs, concerts, and other outdoor events, Robert decided that he could provide a better customer experience through his own company, and Spectrum was born.

Located in Kansas City, we hope you will find our Midwestern family values refreshing.
