Sheldon D. Hansen | Bio

Sheldon Hansen graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education. He moved with his wife to New Jersey to accept a teaching position at Toms River High School North. While teaching, he worked in his father's independent insurance agency. Sheldon purchased the agency in 1978 and grew the agency to 16 professional staff members before merging in 2001 to form Brouwer Hansen and Izdebski Associates. BHI is a multi-location independent insurance agency located in New Jersey. Sheldon completed his CIC designation in 1980, his CRM in 2006, and his CPIA designation in September 2009 with the firm belief that knowledge is power. He has been a member of the Chamber of Commerce, President of the Central Ocean Rotary Club, Board Member of the Ocean County Independent Insurance Agents, Member of the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers, Redshaw User Group, and many other community organizations. Sheldon has 40 years of very valuable experience in all aspects of the Independent Agency System, and he now sells from a risk management forum which most clients view as professional consulting. He maintains his own book of business with BHI meeting with clients on a regular basis to adjust their coverage to meet their current needs. The reduced agency management responsibilities facilitated by the merger gave Sheldon the opportunity to expand back into his first love, education. He now teaches numerous continuing education classes to professional insurance agents in a number of designations.
