New President & CEO plans to build on great momentum

Dave Gross takes the reins as the fifth President & CEO in SECURA’s 114-year history. He has been at former CEO John Bykowski’s side for the past 17 years, helping shape the company’s exceptional people and service. He plans to build on that strong momentum. 

Dave's career spans more than 30 years in the insurance industry in executive leadership roles where he contributed strategically, and led sales and underwriting operations.

Since joining SECURA in 1997, Dave successfully guided new product development, state expansion, and agency partnerships, ultimately helping profitably grow our company to the nearly $500 million in sales (direct written premium) that it will be by year end. In addition, he helped shape our people-focused culture, fostering exceptional service to agents and policyholders.

His people focus doesn’t stop at work. Dave is active in the community as well. He currently serves on the board of directors and the fund development committee for Big Brothers Big Sisters. He also was a board member for Junior Achievement – Fox Cities and the YMCA Fox Cities.

John Bykowski retired after 17 years leading the company. He will remain as SECURA’s Chairman of the Board.

Congratulations to Dave on his new role!
