Remembering Jim Scharret

Posted: Friday, January 10, 2014


MMRMA Executive Director Michael Rhyner is deeply saddened to announce that Board Member Jim Scharret passed away on January 9, 2014, following a short illness.

Jim was a long-time friend and supporter of MMRMA. He served on the Board of Directors since 1989 and held a deep and fervent commitment to sustaining and expanding the organization’s performance at all levels.

His background and experience, featuring decades of service in a complex, full-service municipal environment, was a perfect fit for MMRMA. He held several increasing responsible positions with the City of Southfield, culminating in City Administrator. He earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration from Wayne State University and Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Central Michigan University.

During Jim’s tenure on MMRMA’s Board, the organization flourished, with outstanding performance results and membership services programs that are second to none. Under his leadership, MMRMA enjoyed many successes that contributed to an overall reduction in the frequency and severity of property and liability losses and, in turn, reduced the cost of risk for members.

Beyond the business results, Jim always placed a high priority on the needs of the membership and made certain that MMRMA never lost its focus as a member-driven service organization. He truly believed in MMRMA’s mission to protect not only its members, but the public they serve. He was thoughtful, even-handed, and highly ethical in his decision making. In addition, Jim always supported and recognized the efforts of MMRMA’s staff.

The loss of Jim Scharret marks a sad day for the entire MMRMA family.
