Dave was the fifth generation of his family to graduate from Indiana University and is a proud Hoosier! Before joining German American Insurance, he gained experience from one of the largest direct writing mutual insurance companies in the country, where he went through an intensive eleven month training program, garnering an equivalent of a master’s degree in insurance. Dave is a member of the Southern Indiana Red Cross Advisory Board, is part of the Salvation Army Red Kettle Kickoff with his mother, Peggy, and is a member of Clear Creek Christian Church. Dave and his wife, Rejni, have three children, Giacomo, Kalyan, and Estelle. He enjoys running, playing golf and basketball, cooking – specifically smoking meat, writing, and most of all, spending time with his family.
