Very early on, Roger Sitkins asked Don Jones what he wanted for The Better Way. His answer was nothing, but ask John Connelly. So we did. John's answer was set up a fund in Don Jones honor at the FSU College of Business Risk Management Institute.
On February 19, 2015, Roger Sitkins, chairman and founder of Sitkins Group, Inc., presented a $10,000 gift. The donation honors Don Jones, the creator of “The Better Way” system of agency management and kicks off an annual gift to the Dr. William T. Hold/The National Alliance Program in Risk Management and Insurance.
Jones had handed over the rights to the system’s materials to John Connelly, Director of Mergers and Acquisitions at HUB International Florida and a member of the college’s RMI Advisory Council. Connelly recently decided to give the rights to Sitkins’ firm in exchange for 10 percent of the proceeds from the classes and materials going to Florida State’s RMI program annually.
