Jim Schmidt

Executive Chairman

Jim co-founded Alexander & Schmidt in 1986 with his good friend and business partner Jim Alexander.   Alexander & Schmidt was founded on the principle that superior Loss Control reports are essential to successful and profitable underwriting.  Following Jim Alexander’s passing in 1999, Jim continued the development and growth of the company, taking it from a regional presence to a national company.  Jim has grown the company through his passion for high quality Loss Control Risk Assessment reports that Underwriters value.  Investing in the development of employees, Jim has created a culture of passion and excellence whereby the entire team is driven to deliver exceptional service to Alexander & Schmidt’s customers.  Jim has carried on the Alexander & Schmidt tradition of charitable and philanthropic service including supporting local community organizations by contributing to area food banks, 4-H, international and local Rotary service as a Paul Harris Fellow and other organizations that define the character of Alexander & Schmidt as a service focused organization.
