Jim French, CLU, ChFC

Managing Member, Licensed Agent

Jim is a long-time insurance professional, amassing over 47 years of experience at all levels of the business.  He is the founder and retired CEO of Cornerstone National Insurance Company, an insurance company based in Columbia, MO.

When Jim retired as CEO of Cornerstone, he quickly realized that he did not want to stay retired very long.  He decided he wanted to build another business, this time working with people directly on their needs by putting his years of experience to work protecting peoples' assets.

Jim is a graduate of Truman State University and has earned the Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) and Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) designations.  He is the proud grandpa of five awesome grandchildren, and most importantly, Carol's husband of 49 years.
