John may have grown up on a ranch in central South Dakota, but he’s no stranger to the business world. Since graduating from Augustana College, John has spent more than 20 years in risk management and the commercial insurance industry. He was recently named Principal
of the firm’s Sioux Falls office in South Dakota, which he also established.
In addition to serving as Principal for SilverStone Group’s operations in North and South Dakota, John also leads the Sioux Falls Risk Management Team. Their unique practice partners with midsize companies to take a proactive risk management approach. They recognize that placing and servicing insurance policies offers only part of the equation for most larger businesses.
