Mike started in the insurance industry in 1997 after joining his grandfather’s firm, Dehart & Stauffer Insurance Brokers. He worked his way up to eventually running the business and decided, after 20 years, a change was required. Mike chose to leave Dehart & Stauffer, and moved into underwriting and insurance consulting, where he gained a new perspective on the insurance industry. In May, 2021, Mike decided to return to the broker role, joining Bradley Brothers Insurance in May 2021.
Mike’s grandfather, Wilson Stauffer, taught him that honest/thorough client evaluation is the core to being a valued insurance broker and he holds that to this day, ensuring that his clients are well informed and insured.
Mike enjoys spending time with his wife and kids travelling and camping during the summer. He is an avid “Sports Junky” and has been involved in several sports as a player, referee, and coach. During the summer you can find him on the golf course, or kayaking up north. In the winter, he enjoys skiing and is a committed hockey and curling fan. Mike is also an honoured member of both the Durham College and Ontario College Athletic Association Sports Hall of Fame.
