Dan knows that in business, it’s people who make the difference. He’s been in the Property & Casualty arena for more than 25 years, which is long enough to know that what really makes a customer feel valued is having someone take the time to listen to his or her story. That’s exactly what Dan and his team do every day while communicating extensively with their clients to work together and streamline coverages.

Dan specializes in the placement of unique coverages in the franchise area, including an extensive nationwide practice in the janitorial and in-home care industries. He and his team use a holistic approach to help clients solve business-related problems by utilizing many of SilverStone Group’s resources to determine the lowest cost of risk possible. Dan also maintains a substantial practice with not-for-profit organizations.

Dan really enjoys helping others and has an admirable community service record. He is currently on the Skutt Catholic High School President’s Advisory Council, a board member of Midlands Mentoring Partnership and a member of the Nebraska Restaurant Association. Dan is a past member of the New Cassel Retirement Center Board of Directors and a past President of the St. Vincent de Paul School Board. In addition, he has also served on the Ak-Sar-Ben Floor Committee and the Advisory Board of Continental Western.
