About Us


An Introduction to Jim Peterman, CPC 

After graduation from college, I  held several professional, management and sales positions in the life and employee benefits industries, focusing primarily in the group, special risk and mass marketing areas. I worked for companies engaged in several different distribution methods and marketing areas, including Penn Mutual, Reliance Standard Life and Fireman's Fund. In 1981, I entered the recruiting industry and in 1983 established Kenneth James Associates. As a principal of this firm, I managed the insurance recruiting division. In 1986, the name of the insurance division was changed to J. R. Peterman Associates. I have attained the Certified Personnel Consultant designation awarded by the National Association of Personnel Services. I recruit in all insurance disciplines from accounting to underwriting in all areas of life and health insurance, specifically: group insurance and employee benefits consulting, travel insurance, individual and associations, specialty A&H, and expatriate benefits, including travel assistance. After more than twenty-five years of recruiting experience, I feel uniquely qualified to counsel both candidates and employers involved in the search, interview, and hiring process.
