I started Advanced Insurance Management in November of 1987. So it's now thirty years since that momentous decision, and we're still going strong. I owe a lot of thanks to a lot of people who made this possible. There's that very first client, Scheck Mechanical, and the owner of that company, Rich Scheck, who were there at the very beginning.
There were other early clients as well, like K&S Sprinkler, a local company that I still pass almost every evening on my drive home. And the fine folks at Caterpillar, who hired me to be part of an ongoing consulting project for their manufacturing suppliers back in those early days deserve a salute as well, because that project made a big difference in those early days.
Thirty years later, we're busier than ever. My younger son was six years old when I began A.I.M. and now he's been my business partner for fourteen years. How time flies when you're having fun!
Speaking of my son and biz partner, he updated me today about a case he's handling, where he's obtained premium refunds totaling about $170,000 for a crane manufacturer in Kansas. And of course, in his free time, he continues his law school education, so that in another year or so A.I.M. will be able to add a unique new component to our services: an attorney with unmatched training and experience in Workers Compensation premium reviews.
As I've said elsewhere, the best is yet to come.
