Derek Friesen, Account executive, Founders Insurance Group
Founders Insurance Group
At Founders Insurance Group, Derek Friesen manages a book worth more than $1.5 million – an impressive accomplishment for someone who has only been in the industry for two years. Making an immediate impact when he entered insurance at the age of 19, Friesen started out as a CSR before progressing into an account executive role, growing his capabilities and skills along the way. Today, he is recognized by peers as one of the brightest up-and-coming insurance professionals in the Atlantic region.
Currently, Friesen is in the process of completing his CAIB and LLQP designations to better round out his professional education. Outside of insurance, he is a baseball coach and mentor in Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, and is active in the athletic department at his former high school.
