After 21 years working in retail management for a music chain, and having lived on both sides of the United States, Dan switched career paths and entered the insurance industry 18 years ago. He started his insurance career at a brokerage firm, where he received his insurance license. In 2000, he was hired here at SMS to work for the travel insurance division.
Dan’s expertise in SMS’ web-based agent tools, international life and health, high limit AD&D and travel insurance products makes him a great asset for agents who are looking to expand their product portfolios. He is able to help agents with questions about growing their business and helping their clients plan and protect their travel plans. Dan enjoys working with and educating agents on a simple product that adds to their book of business even though it may only pop up on their radar every once in a while. Dan and his staff have a combined 42 years of travel insurance experience, so they most likely have the answer to any travel insurance question.
Dan has three great kids: oldest son Jake, daughter Abbie, who happens to work at SMS as well, and youngest son Josh, who is now in college after serving four years in the Air Force. In his spare time, Dan enjoys fishing and cooking and won the 2007 SMS chili cook-off. Dan loves to fish just about anywhere in Baja California, Mexico. His favorite things to cook are crock pot dishes involving beef, pork, chicken, pasta or veggies.
