Please Join Us in Welcoming Jim Akers to the MUSIC Team

We would like to welcome Jim Akers to the MUSIC team!

Jim started with MUSIC on April 1st as part of a specialized Loss Control Consultant.

The staff recommended to the MUSIC Board the hiring of a new full‐time staff member to focus solely on workers’ compensation cost reduction.  As part of Jim’s responsibilities, he will be assisting members with higher experience modification factors and develop policies and procedures for all members.

We are extremely pleased that we were able to hire Jim Akers from Parkway Schools into this position. He has been an asset to the MUSIC program for many years as we have plagiarized his work product and asked him to meet with other St. Louis area districts that have wanted to improve their programs. At Parkway, under Jim’s management, their mod has decreased from 1.29 to .59! Needless to say, he knows what he is doing.

Jim has already been meeting with the high mod districts in the St. Louis area.

Jim resides in Ballwin Missouri with his wife Brenda, and dog, Sia.  He is the proud father of three sons Jason, Ryan and James.   Jim is also happy to announce that Jason recently got married.
