Bob and I would like to welcome the newest member of TeamIB: William (Bill) Halper.
Bill is a regular commenter here at IB, and we think he'll be a valuable contributor. We hope you will, too.
Bill's been active in the insurance industry since 1986 [ed: newbie!]. As president of Halper Storz Insurance Services, Inc (an independent insurance agency providing consultation in the dual fields of employee benefits and financial planning for business owners), his clients range in size from companies with hundreds of employees and multi-state operations down to local two-person businesses.
Before getting into insurance, Bill worked for ten years in the high-tech sector. He graduated from Stanford with a Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering.
Bill lives in Saratoga, California and is married with five children, a golden retriever, and an ever-changing number of tropical fish.
(I think Bob's secretly jealous of the fish, myself)
Welcome aboard, Bill!
