Brent and his wife Linda have lived in Salem since 1990 and are raising their two boys. He has been very active in his community- from being a youth coach to serving as an elected official.

Born in Iowa, at age ten Brent moved with his family to California, where he graduated from Homestead High School (as did Steve Jobs) and the University of California at Berkeley. During this time, he worked as a house painter, a short-order cook, a bartender, warehouse worker, and commercial actor. After a few years in Los Angeles, he moved to Salem to get married and help his father with his retail business.

Since that time, he has expanded the business five different times, running gasoline stations, convenience stores, an aviation fuel business, and commercial real estate investments.

His passions have included adventure travel, scuba diving, mountaineering, and particularly- baseball. He has been fortunate enough to visit many interesting places, including Palau, Egypt, Kenya, Thailand, Korea, and Ecuador. Seeing different cultures- and many degrees of poverty- colors his perspective about everything.

Brent DeHart has made the transition to Northwestern Mutual in order to utilize his gifts to help people in their quest for financial security, clarity, and peace of mind. He appreciates the ability to make a significant and meaningful difference in the lives of his clients.
