Dean is the president and CEO of Paradox Insurance Agency in Kalispell, MT. One of Dean’s major projects while assisting NetVU on the board has been in developing a long-term strategic plan for NetVU that includes serving our members through industry advocacy, cultivating new member relations for mentorship and fostering a strong relationship with the Vertafore team.
Dean is fluent in quite a few of the products that Vertafore offers and currently uses many, such as AMS360, PL Rating, InsureLink, Sircon Agency Edge and My Agency Home. He has strong words of wisdom when it comes to utilizing these Vertafore products, “You have to find what is right for your agency when selecting your technology stack,” he explains. “Ask questions, determine your use, review your findings and ask more questions.” Dean shared a valuable piece of advice with us that he encourages everyone to consider, and that is to find a mentor in your field and to hold on to that person. And remember that you will never know everything!
