Chief Energy Officer
As the CEO (Chief Energy Officer) here with Team Laven, one of his duties is to keep our spirits up and the energy high! He also is a commercial salesperson and loves helping our commercial clients get the right protection. It may be a challenge at times, but he enjoys helping clients each and every day. Taking the time to talk with our clients and help them to understand what they need and want is what he does best! He also takes care of clients by helping them with Medicare and Life insurance and Long-Term Care Protection (trust me – get it before you need it!).
He has been in sales since 1986 (about the time the gray hair started) and loves the people part of it! He joined Team Laven in 2013. Insurance wasn’t on the radar, but after successfully running a HVAC company for many years, it was time for a change, and it has become a passion. Helping people protect lifestyles is one of his greatest accomplishments. He is inspired by his clients and team! He is also on the Board of Directors for PIA of Indiana (Professional Insurance Agents) and has his CPIA (Certified Professional Insurance Agent) designation.
After meeting at a ND tailgate (thank you ND & Lake City Bank), Brian has been married to Linda since 1999. He loves helping others and has been a Rotarian since 2014, including terms as club president. Brian loves his Chicago Cubs and Bears! Ask him for some wine recommendations – his collection keeps growing. He loves to try new wines. Good food and good friends make him a happy guy! Going to Arizona to see the Cubs for Spring Training is one of his favorite things to do, as is going to Chicago to Wrigley Field. There is nothing like it. His happy place is Glen Arbor, MI. On the shores of Lake Michigan is where he can relax and just be.
