Bregman Financial & Insurance Services was founded in 1969 by Dutch immigrant, Peter Bregman, father of current CEO Marc Bregman, LUTCF, loyal NAIFA member since 1997. Peter’s sister was widowed at a young age, which instilled in him a passion for ensuring that all his family members were protected by life insurance. He started in the industry as an agent with Metropolitan Life. During his first year in the business, he set a goal to hand out 30 business cards a day saying “I’m Peter Bregman, and I work for Metropolitan Life. If you need life insurance, call me. Here’s my card.” Peter made MDRT his first year in the business and every year until his retirement 40 years later. Peter’s first employee, Esther Crest retired in 2022 at the age of 97.
