Owner, Bordman Insurance
Kenneth (Kenny) Bordman was born and raised in Houston, TX. He studied Fire Science and Fire Engineering at Texas A&M University and proceeded to launch his career as a fireman at The Ponderosa Fire Department in Houston.
Due to his passion for our country and freedom, he served in the United States Army as an Infantryman with the 3rd Infantry Division.
Upon fulfillment of his Army duties, he studied Applied Science and Criminal Justice at Odessa College. He graduated with honors from the 88th session of the Odessa College Law Enforcement Academy. Post-graduation, Kenneth fulfilled a childhood dream and became a Police Officer with the City of Odessa, TX. Kenneth worked diligently to become a Field Training Officer and made the rank of Corporal. Once he was ready to hang up his service hat, he became intrigued by the insurance industry because it furthered his desire to help the community. He began working at State Farm. Due to Kenneth’s dedication, expertise, and hard work, his State Farm office location earned a place as one of the top 50 offices in the nation.
After the success with State Farm, and with the support of his family and friends, he decided to venture out on his own and open an independent agency- Bordman Insurance Services. This independent agency is Kenneth’s effort to provide his clients with more options, better coverage, and the best price available.

REVIEWS FROM HAPPY CLIENTS
Could not ask for a better agent!
I'd strongly recommend you reaching out to him for any of your insurance needs.
He will make sure you get everything you need.
One quick call to the Bordman agency saved me thousands! Not only because their rates were the best around, but because my Agent told me boats of that size are more expensive to insure without an "out of water survey" which I promptly demanded of the yacht broker.
This saved me a big chunk on my rate, as well as an entire day off work.
THATS the difference with Borman Insurance Services.
