Dave’s family has a pattern of passing on talents from one generation to the next. His grandfather was once a successful insurance broker in Manhattan, New York, and now Dave has an insurance career in Omaha, Nebraska. As a Private Client Executive on our Personal Insurance Team, Dave works with both affluent and general markets to provide asset protection for the things people value most, all while delivering unsurpassed customer service.

Through face-to-face visits and consultations, he serves clients who need more than the average mass-market insurance products. He maintains detailed knowledge of new and existing products, researches market conditions and identifies solutions to help his clients select the most effective coverage for their particular needs.

Before launching his insurance career, Dave played baseball in college for four years. He’s happy to say his sons are following in his footsteps as amateur players (for now!). He coaches their teams and enjoys watching them excel in a sport that has meant so much to him.
