ANN ARBOR, Mich. Feb. 16, 2017 – Hylant, one of the nation’s largest privately owned insurance brokerage firms, congratulates Derek Shinska for his selection to the Harvard Business School’s Young American Leaders Program (YALP).
Chosen by the Detroit YALP committee of civic leaders, Derek will attend a three-day workshop at the Harvard Business School with 90 other motivated and dynamic leaders from nine U.S. cities to identify short- and long-term solutions for improving their communities.
Participants representing government, business, education, nonprofit, labor and other sectors will work across traditional boundaries to develop creative and innovative practices for encouraging prosperity at the local level.
“It is a great honor to be selected for the Young American Leaders Program and we are proud to have Derek represent Hylant and the Detroit area,” said Linda Koos, President, Hylant-Ann Arbor. “Hylant strongly supports public service and we appreciate Derek’s shared commitment to our community and his willingness to explore ways to continue to make it stronger.”
A graduate of the University of Michigan, Derek joined Hylant last year as a client executive in the Ann Arbor, Michigan office.
