Derek is on the Executive Board of the Young Leaders of Fillmore County organization, a member of the Geneva Chamber of Commerce, and the Alumni board President of Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity. He is also a committee member of Fillmore County Development Corporation. Derek and his wife, Brooke were married in 2007. They now have three daughters, Kayleigh, Kelsey and Kaitlyn.
