President and CEO
HEFFERNAN INSURANCE BROKERS
Mike Heffernan entered the insurance industry as an intern for Lloyd’s at the age of 22. At 29, he purchased a struggling insurance brokerage with just 10 employees. That brokerage eventually became Heffernan Insurance Brokers, a firm that’s grown over the years to more than 420 employees and nine branches; last year, the company passed $100 million in revenue. Heffernan has been recognized as a Most Admired CEO by the San Francisco Business Times. He also believes in giving back; since its founding in 1988, Heffernan Insurance Brokers has given more than $4 million to charity, and Heffernan employees volunteer about 5,000 hours of their time each year. In 2015, the company’s charitable foundation launched a $100,000 scholarship partnership with College Track.
