Executive Vice President
Duane joined Ed as an independent agent in 1988. Ed asked him to leave his new career in banking to knock doors of local employers & offer supplemental health insurance. As the client base began to grow, so did the product line. Duane worked to attract new agents & carriers from the early days of the company. As employees were hired to support the growth, Duane continued to bring new clients and worked closely with the office staff to form the company’s operational infrastructure. Duane was named Executive Vice President in 1999, just before the company was about to see explosive growth and diversification. Duane now works with the Executive Management team with a focus on corporate strategies, including managing Insurance company relationships and Information Technology platforms while remaining involved in all aspects of the company’s focus and culture. Duane feels that the company is better poised for the future than at any time in the company’s history
