Pritchard & Jerden President, Jim Bailey, said, “Thomas has a lot of experience working with industrial businesses to understand their operations and develop solutions. We are excited to have Thomas join us and apply this experience developing insurance and risk management solutions for our clients”.
Musselwhite’s client focus typically consists of those in the manufacturing, utilities, distribution, and food processing industries. Musselwhite says his leadership style is built on honesty, integrity, clear communication, and employee development. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his family, staying active, playing golf, and watching the Braves.
Tom McNamara has also joined Pritchard & Jerden as a Risk Advisor in Commercial Lines. McNamara is a 17-year insurance industry veteran who is licensed in both Property & Casualty and Life & Health.

“Not only does Tom have a lot of experience in our industry,” said Jim Bailey, “but he also has a lot of passion to develop solutions for his clients. We are excited to have Tom and his passion on our P&J Team.”
McNamara’s primary concentration is developing risk management solutions for non-profits, manufacturing and construction industries.
