Detroit-based H.W. Kaufman Financial Group, a Michigan insurance company, today announced Daniel J. Kaufman would be assuming a broader leadership role as senior vice president for corporate growth, while continuing to serve as managing director of the Chicago, Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, and Minneapolis offices.

In his new role, Kaufman will oversee sales and marketing functions and lead corporate growth and development initiatives.

 

“When my father, Herbert W. Kaufman, founded the company in 1969, his long-term plan for the viability of the company was to preserve its legacy of excellence through family leadership,” says Alan Jay Kaufman, chairman, president, and CEO for H.W. Kaufman. “As a third generation leader, Danny will play an invaluable role in enhancing the strategic direction, financial success, and continued growth of the Kaufman group of companies.”

Kaufman’s new position will also entail working directly with the human resources function to improve employee engagement programs, recruitment, retention, and compensation.

“In this new role, it is my goal to tackle the challenge of exploring innovative corporate revenue-driving initiatives, organizational design strategies, and deeper engagement with clients through a data-driven approach,” says Daniel Kaufman. “Learning directly from my father and early on with my grandfather, I intimately understand the unique complexities of the organization and will use that knowledge to positively contribute to the corporate growth of our global brand.”

Kaufman will return to the company’s headquarters in Farmington Hills.
