Member Spotlight – Brad Derby
POSTED February 24, 2017 | Articles | Member Spotlight
I am Brad Derby, 32 from Rapid City SD. Born and raised in the Black Hills of South Dakota with Mount Rushmore practically in my back yard.
I am married with 3 children and we enjoy being outside as much as possible. Between soccer, camping and biking, our weekends are filled to the brim.
I have had licenses for PC LHD and Series 6 and 63 since 2011 and have owned my own Farmers Agency for 6 years now.
I started my career in banking back in 2004. After running the operations for an 18 location locally owned bank, a group of 8 broke off and formed National Bank from scratch in 2007. After getting the bank up and running, I decided it was my time to leave banking and become my own boss. Taking on my agency in 2011 has been the best choice of my life. Referrals were easy to come by as the bank I worked at prior was owned by 42 local investors who already knew the quality of work I produced. My agency currently is the 3rd largest in my district. I strive to be at the top of every leaderboard. Referrals are the lifeblood of my operation.
I like to give back to the community and this year will be my 12th annual Charity Golf Tournament. Last year we were able to donate $10,000 to Make-A-Wish South Dakota. Now after being involved with donating to such a great cause for a few years, I am applying for a position on the Board of Directors. I am looking forward to the growth personally and professionally for the organization and myself.
I am looking forward to seeing what LeTip can do to increase not only my business but for those that I will be involved with.
