Our History


Jacobson's Inception

Founded in 1971 by David Jacobson, The Jacobson Group quickly became the most highly-regarded insurance recruiting firm in the U.S. Originally known as Jacobson Associates, we began solely as a professional recruiting service to the insurance industry. With resolute commitment to delivering qualified industry professionals, exceptional service and unparalleled expertise, we earned intense loyalty from clients and word of our success as insurance recruiters pervaded the industry.

During the 1980s, Jacobson built a solid foundation in our core business as recruiters. Now a well-trusted provider of insurance professionals, clients appealed to us to deliver a greater range of insurance talent solutions for their human capital challenges. We responded.

Introduction of Interim Staffing Solutions

In 1993, Jacobson officially established Insurance Staffers. This interim staffing division was formed in response to the overwhelming demand for flexible talent resources, including temporary and temporary-to-hire insurance industry professionals. Confronted with a tight and increasingly costly labor market and frustrated by the inability of clerical firms to provide qualified candidates, clients turned en masse to Insurance Staffers for high caliber insurance professionals. We experienced exponential growth and expanded our service offerings to include senior-level actuarial and other executive interim services, as well as a travel-based “SWAT” team solution.

Constantly seeking to deliver comprehensive services with bottom line results, in 2003, Insurance Staffers underwent a dramatic transformation into a new entity – Jacobson Solutions. From the start, Jacobson Solutions upheld our commitment to quality, responsiveness, effectiveness and integrity. Today, Jacobson continues to offer flexible talent solutions that meet the workload management and business-critical needs of our clients.Whether the need is for one person or a team of people, we can support virtually any temporary need across all insurance functional areas and at all levels for insurance organizations nationwide.

Refinement of Executive Search Services

While our flexible talent service offering underwent changes, we were also refining our ability to provide executive search. In 2000, Jacobson's executive search and selection practice was created to provide a more consultative approach to the acquisition of senior-level insurance talent for C-Level insurance and Board Member positions. Long-tenured Jacobson leaders were asked to pilot our highly talented and specialized team of experts focused exclusively on insurance executive search and selection.

International Expansion

As the insurance industry became more global in nature, Jacobson recognized the industry’s desire for continuity in executive search cross-border. In 2008, we partnered with Schonhofer Executive Search, the premier London-based insurance executive search firm specializing in assignments in the London, broader European and international markets. This affiliation expanded our insurance network to the global marketplace and allowed us to better serve the industry’s international executive search needs.

Today, Jacobson is regarded as the leading provider of insurance talent. Regardless of the need or situation, Jacobson is the insurance talent solution.
