About

Jon D. Kirssin is the Principal of CFMC, Inc., a captive and general insurance consulting and management company formed in July 2001. CFMC was founded on Jon’s belief that all business owners should have a resource available to educate and expose them to the unique alternative risk management tools that are available in today’s market. He had a strong desire to present a comprehensive solution that would assist clients in meeting their operational objectives in a non-traditional fashion. And, hopefully to become a trusted advisor who could help to take their “insurance worries” away.

Directly prior to founding CFMC, Jon was Senior Vice-President for alternative markets and service operations with a large regional insurance agency located in Central PA. From 1978 through 1997 he was employed with PMA Insurance Company, rising through the ranks to Vice-President and Branch Manager in Central PA. His responsibilities included underwriting, claims, service operations and alternative markets with total annual premium of approximately fifty five million dollars in three offices.

Jon has extensive experience and expertise with workers compensation, professional and general liability, difference-in-condition, automobile, and service contracts (auto, builders and furniture), medical malpractice and many varied enterprise risk exposures. He currently actively manages 50+ single parent captives with many more in the feasibility study and formation process. As a captive manager, Jon's responsibilities include planning, claims management, policy development/issuance, reinsurance negotiation and other dedicated captive company issues and needs.

Jon attends professional seminars each year that are focused on both the traditional and alternative market to keep current on all regulatory changes. In addition, he has been asked to share his knowledge at the PA Bar Institute Continuing Education Seminars for the past several years regarding alternative market and risk management opportunities.
