Jamie began his career in the staffing industry in 1994. He took the reins of the family company and became President of Hire Calling, Inc., a staffing company with ten locations. Jamie understands the workers' compensation needs of the staffing industry very well. His education in this area began early in life when his father mortgaged the family home in order to have the funds to deposit with the State of Oregon to enable Hire Calling to become a self-insured employer. Growing up, a successful workers' compensation program literally determined whether or not the family had a roof over its head. That early indoctrination led to an intimate understanding of the elements critical to a successful staffing industry workers' compensation program. Through acquisition and organic growth, the Oregon-based company has grown to over 130 offices doing more than $300 million in sales and covering nineteen western states.
Jamie was the driving force behind the formation of Work First Casualty Company in 2005. Beginning in September 2008, he began serving as the President of Work First Casualty Company. He brought his staffing knowledge into his work with Work First to create the most successful insurance company exclusively serving the staffing industry.
