Warren Reed Insurance

Jim Norton • Employee since 1994 ::

Jim Norton is a commercial lines producer specializing in the construction industry and public entity insurance. Born and raised in Stockton, CA, he is a graduate of the University of the Pacific and began his insurance career with the Travelers Insurance Company as an underwriter trainee in 1966. Jim spent several years with a nationwide broker before going in to the agency business in 1980 with the purchase of Sierra Tahoe Insurance in South Lake Tahoe. Growing weary of California, he saw the light and sold the agency, moving to Nevada and joining Warren Reed in 1994. He has two children and three grandchildren, and is a maniac fly fisherman. As an active member of the High Sierra Fly Casters, he spends much of his free time annoying the trout population of the Eastern Sierra. Because of Jim's knowledge and extensive experience, he is often times the person we seek for solution of an insurance dilemma. Jim is also a storehouse of obscure historical trivia, so please don’t ask him about the Nat Turner Rebellion of 1831. Jim has been the Producer of the Year six times since the start of the award in 1991.
