New Member Spotlight: Derek Peterson

Welcome to RAH, Derek Peterson! Hailing from Orfordville, WI (population 1,286), Derek found his way to UW-La Crosse and graduated as a Screaming Eagle with a finance degree in 2019. He works for Mutual of Omaha Advisors as a financial advisor and particularly enjoys real estate, financial instruments and figuring out how to legally avoid Uncle Sam and paying taxes. Legally is the key word there, folks! Like Bill Pritchard, when Derek's not at work, the golf course is where he ideally spends most of his days off. 

Fun Fact: Derek is part of a group that makes up approximately 1-2% of humans on the planet - being a red head! 

We love opening our arms and welcoming new faces into our tribe! He joined RAH to surround himself with "driven, like minded professionals who have a passion for serving the community while at the same time forming and becoming a part of a tight knit group along the way." No doubt, RAH is the best place to be to fulfill his desire to form meaningful, lifelong relationships with those who share similar values.

Next time you see Derek at a RAH event, make him feel welcome and ask him about his experience as a kid being a "bat boy" for a minor league baseball team and which professional athletes he got to meet along the way!
