David Grew Up In The Insurance Business.
Literally. He has been in the industry since he was 16 years old, when he started in the mail room of Cornerstone National Insurance, Co., a company his father, Jim French, co-founded. Over the course of his 20-year career, David worked his way up through the ranks serving in a variety of different leadership roles with some great companies, all in the field of insurance.
From marketing and management, to claims processing and underwriting, David has spent his entire professional career in the insurance business because he genuinely loves serving his client’s needs with his expertise and understanding of solid risk management principles. He knows how to match the right product with the right need, and serving his clients in that way is what David enjoys most.
David has achieved the prestigious Chartered Property & Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) designation, which emphasizes knowledge of risk management and insurance policy language.
It’s estimated that only 5% of insurance industry professionals have achieved this designation.
A graduate of the University of Missouri and Stephens College (MBA), David is a long-time Columbian and has been married to his amazing wife Jenelle for more than 11 years. Together they have two beautiful daughters, Evelyn and Isabel.
