Testimonials for J Simpson & Associates

  • I had the privilege of working with Jim since the mid 1980s. This was early in my consulting career and it became obvious very quickly why Jim was successful managing the largest and by all counts most respected Chrysler Corporation dealer in the network. He is also amazing in his ability to empower and improve teams.

    Dean Estep, The Change Agent
  • He has been a pillar of strength since my father’s passing. He is not afraid to speak the truth. He is a great teacher who I consider one of my closest friends. He has guided me through some very choppy waters with my siblings and we are all much better off because he tells it as he sees it. He is a true mentor for me.

    Tom Fabri, President of Commercial Building Maintenance
  • Jim has been a sterling asset to LECMPA as a consultant, advisor and member of our Board of Trustees. We are a non-profit specialty insurance company, operating in 48 states, with an independent sales force of approximately 400, also in all states.
