Brian started his career at West Bend in the Records Department as part of the high school co-op program in 1987. West Bend still continues its support of hiring students in this program. After high school, in 1988, Brian started full-time in the Agency Service Department. From there he moved over to the Personal Lines Department from 1989-90 and held positions such set-up associate, tele-processer, (Brian actually coined the name for West Bend’s Teleprocessing Department through an internal contest), then assistant underwriter and personal lines underwriter from 1995 to 2001. In January 2001, he switched gears and moved over to Commercial Lines as an underwriter, which is the position he holds today.
Brian shared, “I feel very fortunate to work for such a great company! West Bend has given me opportunities that have helped shape who I am today, both personally, as well as professionally. West Bend has great benefits, such as continuing education, which really helped me throughout my years here and will continue to help me in the future.”
