It’s been 34 years since I joined my father (Bruce Boer) and uncle (Ron Boer) at the insurance agency, beginning the second generation of the Boer family in the business of protecting members of our community from financial loss. And now I’m pleased to announce that a third generation of our family is entering the business.
My sons, Brian and Derek, have joined the agency after working five years as Certified Public Accountants. Although their first career out of college was in the accounting profession, they are not new to insurance. Brian and Derek worked part-time at the agency while attending Forest Hills Northern High School and both obtained their insurance agent licenses during college summer break in 2007 and spent that summer working at the agency.
Brian and Derek both graduated from Michigan State University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Accounting and a Master’s Degree in Taxation. Brian worked three years for BDO in Grand Rapids and then two years at Ernst & Young in Toronto. Derek began his accounting career at Ernst & Young and then moved to Jane Street Capital, both in New York City.
If you haven’t guessed by now, Brian & Derek are twins. They share many common interests, a strong work ethic, and a passion for helping others. Their energy, enthusiasm, knowledge, and fresh perspective will be tremendously valuable to the continued success of the agency and our efforts to provide the best service and value possible for our clients. And… with our combined insurance and accounting knowledge, imagine the fascinating conversations the three of us will have in the board room!
Please join me in welcoming Brian and Derek to Boer Insurance Group!
