Kevin Bach

Kevin Bach is celebrating "10" this year.

That's ten years of delivering services to Western Surety brokers, and 10 years of marriage, too.

He remembers that one of the terms he had to negotiate when he joined the firm was getting a week off right away for a honeymoon.

At work, Kevin has risen to Regional Manager for Alberta and the Okanagan.

He says this current position (he started 10 years ago as an Underwriter Trainee ... with hair, he claims) allows him today to focus more on broker relationships. Solid preparation and good experience give him the ability to be flexible and innovative in his broker service.

While Kevin brings a friendly and personable style, his approach to underwriting is not routine.

"Serving brokers means being creative," he says. "You’ve got to think outside the box, and find alternative options."

Kevin also sees the benefit in brokers having the authority to issue bonds. In fact, of his nearly 100 accounts, an average of 85% have a broker line, helping to save brokers’ time.

At home, Kevin is a busy father.

He and his wife Deanna have two daughters, Autumn (nine years old) and Keira (six).

The family is busy with church activities, and Kevin’s recreational time is devoted to golf and hockey. He’s also an avid Riders fan, which gives him lots to talk about with his Alberta and BC brokers!

Training and experience counts.

Kevin holds a BA in Business Administration and an MBA in Financial Management, both from Briercrest Bible College. He has also earned his ACSB designation from the University of Toronto and the Surety Association of Canada.
