Regional and Local Leadership

Business decisions driven by local client needs

Staying close to our customers is key to our success. Marsh & McLennan Agency thrives in large part because its decentralized platform empowers local leaders to make decisions that serve their customers best. 

Upper Midwest Regional Leadership

Bill Jeatran, Chief Executive Officer

Bill founded RJF Agencies—which was acquired by MMA in 2011—in 1986, when he purchased a small agency with revenues of about $100,000. His goal was to build a firm that provides risk prevention advice and resources to clients rather than insurance products alone. He serves on the Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota board of directors.

Jill Lowder, Chief Operating Officer

Jill has been instrumental in creating a company that focuses on partnering with forward-thinking clients to prevent risk. She plays a key role in integrating MMA's approach with its service strategy and platform and helps newly-acquired agencies succeed within MMA.

Amy Peterson, Chief Financial Officer

Amy leads the finance operations for the upper Midwest region, drawing upon more than 30 years of experience within the insurance industry. Prior to working with RJF, which was acquired by MMA in 2011, she was a VP of finance with A.J. Gallagher.
