About Performance Bonding

You have a business to run and deals to close. Securing a bond may be the last thing on your mind. At Performance Bonding, we understand that bonds are critical to meeting contractual obligations. Performance Bonding helps businesses secure the bonds they need to keep their projects moving.

With a strong foundation in surety company underwriting criteria and practices, we understand how bond carriers analyze risk in an often changing marketplace. Our team’s combined 60 years of surety experience is the reason we’re able to specialize in securing “hard to place” bonds that other brokers may not have the experience or marketplace clout to secure.

Senior VIce President Bio

Jim JohnsonSenior Vice President

Describing himself simply as an “insurance generalist,” Jim Johnson humbly downplays his wide range of experience in both commercial insurance and surety, serving high-risk enterprises that otherwise would struggle to cover their unique risks. With difficult-to-insure clients ranging from armored car services, to drilling and blasting contractors, to multi-national corporations, Jim helps companies identify and better assess risk. “In each case, I can analyze whether surety or insurance would work better for the client.”

  Jim began his career as an underwriter, working for insurance companies including USF&G (later Travelers Insurance) before moving to the brokerage side of the industry. Immediately prior to joining WGB, he served as senior vice president and principal at EPIC Insurance brokerage for a decade. Before joining EPIC, he served as vice president at UnionBanc/Armstrong Robitaille Insurance brokerage.

  Jim is a graduate of California State University, Fullerton, where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in business. He makes fitness a priority in his life, spending at least four days per week cycling or hitting the gym with his wife. They have two grown daughters and two grandchildren.
