Jerod was born and raised in Iowa. He was born in Cedar Rapids but growing up with a father in the Iowa State Patrol, his family spent time in various towns throughout Iowa. While he has lived in Des Moines for the past 15 years, he visits Cedar Rapids often to keep in touch with extended family. Having moved around a lot, meeting new people and building relationships quickly comes naturally. Jerod credits his parents with instilling the importance of being fair, honest, and trustworthy as well as the value of hard work.
As a collegiate athlete, he recognizes what it takes to make a team successful. After college, Jerod went on to develop an award winning career focused on business development, marketing, and operations. He spent most of his professional career in the insurance industry as an agency owner and eventual Assistant VP for a large brokerage. When working with insurance companies and adjusters, it's important to understand the nuances that help claims run smoothly and Jerod's experience helps give a competitive advantage to the Xcel Roofing team.
In his free time, Jerod loves spending time with his two daughters, watching live music, traveling, hunting, and participating in competitive activities from league softball to Tough Mudders. But, the thing that keeps Jerod on his toes the most, is a good ping pong game. He even keeps a paddle in his vehicle at all times, just in case a chance to play pops up.
“I am excited about Xcel for several reasons. They care about the community and inspire involvement. They are the most professional in the industry, organized, and have built the organization to scale with the homeowner in mind. It's a great opportunity for me to meet new people and help them restore their home as good and most often better than it was before!"
