Derek was raised in Red Wing, MN and has lived in Rochester since 2015. Derek joined Glenn Mackenzie’s team and Advanced Financial Consultants in 2017. Focusing on strategies for families in the areas of life insurance, individual financial planning, health care, and business succession planning are top interests. The majority of clients are self-employed agriculturalists interested in long term planning and risk management. As a team we work with multiple generations and find strategies to bridge family generations together using the highest quality insurance vendors and utilizing the resources of Advanced Financial Consultants and one of the nation’s largest broker dealer networks. Education, collaboration, honesty and integrity are of utmost importance to Derek, alongside an active involvement in his faith.
Outside of work, travelling with his wife Rachelle and two young children to explore and discover new people and places brings great joy. Being a music major in college, live entertainment is top of the list for things to do followed closely by a love of outdoor adventure activities.
