Gerrit VandeKemp chats with me about fatherhood, how he won’t forget the time when he found out he was going to be a dad for the first time and the values he looks to instill into his kids. We talk about his business, TripwireID on how it is the first of its kind social media protection platform to protect your entire family. Integrated with all major social media platforms, SocialSentry alerts members if something appears to violate their privacy or poses a security risk to them or their family. We finish the interview with the Fatherhood Quick Five.
About Gerrit VandeKemp
Gerrit was a late entrant into the wholesale P&C insurance industry, starting at age 34 on the underwriting side. He devoured every aspect of information he could to learn a foreign space, and quickly established himself as a technical expert and creative deal crafter across his industry. He made the unconventional crossover from underwriting into brokering and built a book of business that generates over $1MM in annual revenue/ $10MM in annual premium. By focusing on the problem, he has been able to develop unique insurance solutions for clients where others simply relied on what they’re familiar with.
In addition to building his brand, he has built a significant amount of pre-fabricated furniture for his children and some badass forts when he was a kid.
