David Hirth began his career in the insurance industry in 1980 when he started a new agency in New Ulm, Minnesota. He started without an existing client base and managed to grow his business to a thriving agency with personal lines, commercial, and farm accounts.
During David’s tenure in the insurance business, he was a District Manager for MSI, Southern Minnesota territory from 1987 through 1995. The District Manager position encompassed supervising his agency, and 35 additional agencies as well as provide training for agents in commercial, personal, townships and life and health lines. In 1995 David decided to return his focus to the growth of his personal business.
In 2001 he merged his agency with the Citizens Bank Agency to become the Citizens David Hirth Agency. He actively managed this agency for 11 years. In 2013, David decided that he would return to the independent agency model, where he could spend more time with clients and less time managing day-to-day operations.
He’s a native of New Ulm and a life-long resident. David holds a B.S. from the Minnesota State University in Business Administration. He attended a 1-year program for Agency Management; completed MSI Township Government short courses from 1980 to 2001; and completed 3 of the four required courses for the L.U.T.C. (Life Underwriting Training Council). David has also worked as an expert witness for insurance litigation cases and continues to stay abreast of issues and changes in the industry.
Dave attended Leaque of MN Cities sponsored Safety and Loss Control workshop (agent tracks) in 2017/2018.
David and his staff currently handle auto, home, farm, business, life and health insurance coverage.
