Dave Bonne Sr – insurance man, family man

I would like to introduce you to the patriarch and founder of Hudson Valley Agents, David Bonne Sr. Dave Sr has made a lot of people happy during his 45 years in the insurance business and it makes us happy to point out to him just how long he’s been at it!

Dave Sr wasn’t always the insurance man, he holds an accounting degree from Pace University and believe it or only started with insurance as a way of working “until I could find a real job”. In his first year at Prudential he blew everyone away and that’s when a career in insurance started looking pretty darn good indeed!


When Dave Sr isn’t working for HVA he’s busy building up his second business, Liberty Tax. (Save money on your insurance and your taxes all at the same place!) He regularly donates to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital and is an avid poker player. He’s been married to his wife, Josephine, forever and has two children, Dave Jr and Keith. He’s a proud grandfather who spends as much time with his two grandson’s as he can. He’s also a big Tom Clancy fan.
