Prior to joining Gregory & Appel, Terry worked several years within the independent agency realm, developing a passion for creating strong client partnerships and fostering advocacy throughout the entire risk management process.

Since then, he’s developed several areas of expertise: Resort Properties, Staffing, Not-for-Profits, Manufacturing and Contracting Operations.Terry first became aware of CMBC in 2015 through fellow Board Member, Brenda Schultz, accepting her invite to play in CMBC’s annual golf outing. In 2017, he was diagnosed with leiomyosarcoma, a rare type of cancer that affects smooth muscle tissue.

Marked by faith, with the support of family and friends, Terry overcame his bout with cancer and was discharged from care in November 2018. In a natural next step for Terry, he became an active CMBC Board Member in February 2019.
