John’s entrepreneurial drive has been with
him since childhood. He and his younger brothers had a lawn business for many years and,
at one time, counted Gary Hurley (retired CEO
of SilverStone Group) as a customer. When John’s resume landed on his desk a few years later, Gary remembered how John always did an outstanding job and decided to give him a chance at
John’s team of human capital experts, attorneys and professional liability specialists provide a diverse set of advisors and strategies to help clients manage risk. They use data analytics gathered from their own research to help companies understand the true costs affecting their bottom line. The team helps them change the way they think about risk, seeing the much greater impact that non-insurance risk dollars have on results. Everyone wants lower costs, but John and his team simply demonstrate a new set of costs, whether indirect or hidden, and more transparent costs companies can do something about.
For larger organizations that want to actively self-insure or manage primary exposures contributing to excessive loss, SilverStone Group offers direction around which activities will have the greatest return on investment. When warranted, John and his team have helped organizations develop “captive” solutions for financing traditional insured
and uninsurable risks.
SilverStone Group brings a unique approach to people risk, succession planning, retirement and health. At the same time, the firm also shows how addressing
the behavioral exposures of key individuals can help minimize risk. John and his team
are able to show you the long-term financial impact, whether your goal is to maximize
the value of your business or increase value for the next generation.
John provides research articles for trade journals and serves as a public speaker for several professional associations each year. He has earned three different certifications
(CRM, CIC, AAI) related to managing and financing risk.
John has served on the board of directors of VODEC, Southwest Iowa Red Cross, Southwest Iowa Arts Center and Western Iowa Dorms. He is also a member of the Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben Floor committee and is an advisor for two national insurance companies. John and his wife, Andrea, have also worked together on fundraising committees for the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society and Lutheran Family Services.
John and Andrea have a 2-year-old son, William. They enjoy unplugging from work
to spend time with him, including biking, hiking and any other outdoor activity.
