Jim grew up in the insurance business, as his father and grandfather (also named James Dickson) were insurance agents here in Utah. His specialty is commercial insurance for all types of businesses including contractors, trucking companies, manufacturers, and distributors.
After graduating from the U of U Jim worked as an intern with the Aetna Life Insurance Company for two years. As an intern he was able to learn the finer points of employee benefits including group health, and specialty life insurance products.
In 1990 he was awarded with the Young Agent of the Year award by the Independent Insurance Agents of Utah. Subsequently he served on the board of the Professional Insurance Agents of Utah and was the President of the PIA in 1996 and was awarded the Agent of the Year that same year. Jim has worked at Beehive Insurance since July of 2003. In January, 2018, Jim was named a Vice President at Beehive.
Outside the office Jim’s interests are either automobile or sports related. He enjoys golf, skiing, and driving at the Miller Motorsports Park with various automobile clubs. Prior to his grandfather becoming an insurance agent, he owned the first Ford dealership in Salt Lake City. Perhaps automobiles and insurance are genetic traits after all.
