After graduating from the University of Iowa, James McNitt started his insurance career at Allstate. He began in the company’s internal brokerage division, which included personal responsibility for more than $70 million in premium. He also piloted a program within Allstate’s independent agency brand, Encompass, where he implemented a dynamic sales strategy countrywide. McNitt eventually took on a management role with Allstate’s business insurance department, where he oversaw P&L for nine states.
Today, McNitt is a healthcare specialist broker at Risk Placement Services [RPS]. Since he joined RPS just over three years ago, he has found success concentrating on the medical professional liability needs of hospitals, nursing homes, physician groups, health advocates and surgery centers. McNitt has been a part of the Program Committee at the Chicagoland Healthcare Risk Management Society for two years. In his first year of service, he was honored with the organization’s Rookie of the Year Award.
