Dave began his insurance career in 1979, starting as a sales associate before rising through the ranks to become sales manager, branch manager, senior sales representative, territorial manager, and eventually owning a Farmer’s agency. During his almost 40 years in the insurance industry, Dave worked for Metropolitan Life, Cigna, Century, Prudential, and Principal.
Dave’s major goal when founding Mathenia Insurance Group was to provide clients an alternative to the recent trends of insurance companies promoting cheap prices and 15 minute quotes. These companies rarely offer professional advice or personal customer service and are often not the best value. The “One Company Agents,” many with good intentions, cannot offer real choices because they offer only one company’s prices. Dave’s goal was to create a place where clients can receive professional advice, unbiased quotes from multiple carriers, and most importantly a superior customer experience.
Dave has been active in the local community participating in and promoting children’s sports activities and many local charities. Dave and his wife, Julie, have been married for 39 years and considers Julie his rock and compass. They have 2 beautiful daughters and are blessed with 3 grandsons.
