A Bit About Me
What I enjoy most about working for Bell is the employee-first culture that attracts and retains some of the brightest minds in the industry. I’m proud to work for leaders who trust their employees to not only grow the business but also pay it forward on their behalf.
Focusing on business insurance – specifically property and casualty insurance – my background in loss control, underwriting and national brokerage has uniquely prepared me to solve more complicated problems in my current role. I enjoy working with clients who love to create and build solutions for their customers. I love learning about my client’s unique businesses, why they do what they do and how they outshine their competition. From there, I work to bring valuable ideas to help increase their bottom line and keep their assets and employees safe.
I’m proud to be a well-rounded insurance professional with the experience, relationships and negotiating skills to give my clients superior representation, service and results – driving down their total cost of risk.
Growing up in Eagle Lake, Minn., I earned an economics degree from University of Minnesota (Ski-U-Mah!) before receiving my Associate in Risk Management and Chartered Professional Casualty Underwriter designations.
I live in Maple Grove, Minn., with my wife, Stephanie, our two boys, and our dog, Frankie. When I’m not at work, I like spending time with family and friends, in the great outdoors (especially running, fishing and hunting) and attending my boys’ sports events and other activities.
