Derek joined The Prewitt Group in 2021, after serving in the military for 13 years, where he was a Special Forces Officer. As a Green Beret, Derek was commonly assessing risks and finding unique ways to mitigate them, which lead him to his work with The Prewitt Group.
Derek and his wife Catherine graduated from Ole Miss and now live in Niceville, Florida, with their two boys Barin and Cayden. They serve as active members at Crosspoint Methodist Church.
On the weekends, Derek is either on a boat offshore fishing, in search of his next pelagic fish or spending valuable time with his family.
