Jim Murphree, President, CIC

Licensed Agent / Commercial and Personal Lines / Life Insurance


Jim’s quest for excellence in insurance began in 1985 after attending the University of Alabama. With inspired vision Jim pursues lasting relationships with wisdom and honor. Throughout his life Jim has been placed in leadership as a member of Alabama House of Representatives,  president of the Alabama Independent Insurance Agents Association, two time president of Rotary, three time president of the Chamber of Commerce, as well as organizing Christmas parades, and 5K runs. Aside from JMI, Jim’s most fulfilling leadership role is small group leader with Church of the Highlands. Influencing people to the center of God’s will for their life, Jim has discovered, is one of life’s most rewarding things.

Jim’s greatest blessings are his children Hannah and Andrew.

Jim does not take lightly his gift of ownership of JMI, and prays daily for wise stewardship of the relationships God has so graciously granted.

Jim invites you to share the vision and join the journey.
