Some timely career advice launched Jim Higgins into the industry: “It started during a conversation with someone who works in the industry ... he talked me out of going to law school and instead suggested I give insurance a try. [I] quickly learned that with enough entrepreneurial drive and hard work, the sky was the limit. I’ve seen few other industries that afford people coming out of college as many opportunities to fi nd their own path.” Higgins started as an intern at CRC and now oversees the renewal book and manages complicated placements; his team has kept an average annualized revenue growth rate of 20% since 2013.
Higgins has been on several insurance carrier and producer
advisory committees, and also contributes to nonprofi t organizations such as the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. He is part of the Reavis High School District 220 board of education and does fundraising work for the school’s education foundation.
