ARKANSAS PUBLIC ENTITIES RISK MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION

Jim Bergemann


Jim moved here from Wisconsin in 1977 and after 10 years with Wausau Insurance, he joined Arthur J. Gallagher as a producer.  After several years, his responsibilities were reorganized and he, along with Kathi Williams became responsible for the overall management of APERMA as well as a similar pool in northern Louisiana. 
Jim concentrates his activities mostly in the areas of loss identification and trending, future loss projection and the overall financial stability of the program.  Since his involvement, APERMA has more than doubled in size as coverages and services have been enhanced and the administration process has become easier for the APERMA members. 
Along with Kathi, he handles in excess of $20,000,000 of Public Entity’s premiums annually insuring just over 150 accounts, all with similar needs, problems and exposures.
Jim reports directly to the Board, and along with Kathi Williams, Ben Humphries of Gallagher Bassett and APERMA’s legal counsel, Ralph Ohm, they deal with the day to day operations of APERMA.
