David Alender

President, Founder, and Agent

David is the President of Alender Insurance Agency and holds a very high standard for all activities.


First being exposed to the Insurance industry in 1976, he understands the importance of both building relationships with clients and establishing strong levels of trust. While training other agents, David stresses that “When customers want or need assistance, we need to be there to answer the phone no matter what time it is.” He expects that from all the agents.


Outside of the office, David enjoys keeping up with college and professional sports. He loves spending time with family and keeps quite busy as a handyman, always starting and completing new projects around the house.
