About Jim Edholm

Jim Edholm entered the insurance business in — God help me — 1975, and I first began dabbling in group insurance in 1982.

I quit doing anything else in 1992, and candidly, I’ve never looked back. But it’s not all about BBI…

I legitimately love the group benefits business (and pardon my burgeoning ego, but I think I have a bit of a flair for it), but I have to admit, I’d prefer to find a warmer climate in which to do it.

But New England is now home (Chicago used to be, and it still exerts its siren song at least a couple of times a year), so warm or cold, here I am and here I’ll remain.

While I spend most of my time thinking about BBI, my other passions are travel (anywhere’s fine, but Europe is both my particular favorite and that of my wife, Kathy.)

I also like — no love — golfing, although as you can see from the picture above, boating isn’t so bad either… as long as I can get my friend, Clark, to do the maintenance on the boat!

In fact, anything in warm weather is OK with me.

And speaking — I love that too.

Some people say perhaps too much… but I don’t let that stop me. If you have ANY professional organization that would like to hear from someone on benefits, benefit cost control, the latest developments in health care…anything to do with benefits — let me know.

Click on the contact page and call me, email me, whatever. I’ll be there. I promise you, it won’t just be about BBI… I work very hard to pack up-to-the-minute information that’s useful to whatever audience I address!
