Jeff has over 31 years of risk management experience. He works with both public and privately held clients. His unique skills are in the area of analysis, design and implementation of property and casualty programs. His approach with accounts is to focus on methodologies of reducing the cost of risk. This involves various risk financing techniques that include captives, self insurance and loss sensitive rating approaches.

Jeff and his industry-specific teams know that every client faces individual challenges that require customized solutions. But solutions without service are not enough. That’s why they strive to give every client service beyond their expectation. That’s the SilverStone Group hallmark, and it’s practiced every day by Jeff.

A frequent contributor to the Midlands Business Journal and SilverStone Group’s SilverLink magazine, Jeff also provides seminars on reducing workers’ compensation costs and has given presentations to the Nebraska Society of CPAs.

Jeff is a member of many professional associations, including the Risk Insurance Management Society and Jonathon Trummel Council. He is currently working toward obtaining his Chartered Property and Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) and Certified Risk Manager (CRM) designations.
