Vance Taylor joined Tolman & Wiker Insurance Services, LLC in 2008.  As Director of Finance, Vance is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the finance department including financial reporting, budgeting, forecasting, accounts payable and accounts receivable, and administering the company’s pension and 401k plans.  Since 1988, Vance has successfully managed finance operations for an impressive range of businesses.  Previous roles include CFO for Near North Insurance Brokerage’s California operations; Controller for Cal-Surance; Accounting Manager for Fremont Compensation; and Supervisor/Auditor for KPMG, a certified public accountant firm.

In addition to his work in the insurance industry Vance acquired extensive experience in finance and operations as the C.F.O. for Alfred Publishing Company, and has held Executive financial positions with other distribution and manufacturing companies.

Vance attended the University of Utah, where he received a B.S. in Accounting.  His work ethic caught the attention of a recruiter at KPMG while still in college, and subsequently he accepted an offer to join the firm directly after graduation.  Vance holds the designation of C.P.A. and is also a licensed insurance agent.  In addition, he is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA).

In his spare time, Vance volunteers on a Citizen’s Oversight Committee to ensure accountability to the community for how school bond funds are spent.  He is also actively involved with the Boy Scouts of America as a leader and advisor. Working with the team of parents and other advisors, Vance’s unit has been successful in helping upwards of 90% of the youth they mentor to achieve the coveted “Eagle Scout” status.

Originally from Idaho, Vance has been a resident of Southern California for many years and currently resides in Oak Park, California.  He is married with 4 children.
