Barnard Donegan Insurance Welcomes Kevin Kaufman

By October 23, 2021Insurance

Kevin Kaufman joins the BDI Family as a commercial agent, specializing in real estate, hospitality, and construction insurance. He brings a wealth of knowledge in personal and commercial lines, having served as a risk advisor and previous vice president of Brightline Insurance in San Antonio.

Kevin says his first foray into insurance was through his father, who was also an insurance broker. “I grew up saying, ‘I want to be like my dad,’ and I got there. Jennifer [Roberts of the Seguin, Texas office] was the first to help me break into insurance.” In 2001 he began writing personal policies—home, life, health, auto—before moving to the commercial side over the last decade.

The ability to work locally in the office and face-to-face with his clients drew Kevin to make the move to BDI. His previous position had him working remotely from his home, but with BDI, the office is just down the road. “I’ve worked out of my house for eleven years. Being local makes a big difference.” In joining BDI, he looks forward to helping the agency expand. “I want to see BDI grow. I want people in San Antonio and Dallas to know who we are.” Of CEO David Pope, Kevin says, “He’s a very good man and takes care of his employees. He’s a good leader and owner.”

When not working, Kevin enjoys hunting, fishing, and poker. “I’m a country boy; I love the country life,” he explains. He shares his hobbies with his newly wedded wife, three kids, and three dogs. Barnard Donegan Insurance is excited to have Kevin join the team and continue offering our clients the most personalized insurance experience in Texas.
