Barbara Mitelski

Office Co-Manager, Personal Lines

Ms. Mitelski joined the Horton & Fine Agency division of James A. Connors Associates, Inc. in Califon, New Jersey in 2002 as an account executive specializing in personal lines business.

Her dedication to detail coupled with her overall knowledge of the industry led her to be promoted to office co-manager in 2013. In addition to her increased responsibilities, Ms. Mitelski also continues to handle all inside service work associated with her personal lines clients.

A life-long member of the insurance industry, she began her career in 1973 with the Chubb Group of Insurance Companies in Short Hills, New Jersey beginning as a billing clerk and moved up the ranks to become a supervisor in the assigned risk department. While at the Chubb Group, Ms. Mitelski relocated to the Bridgewater, New Jersey office and finally relocated to the headquarters location in Whitehouse, New Jersey.

Ms. Mitelski left the Chubb Group in 1978 to raise her family.

She reentered the industry in 1993 by joining the McHugh, Schlatter Agency in Basking Ridge, New Jersey as the office administrator.

Ms. Mitelski returned to the carrier-side of the insurance business by rejoining the Chubb Group in 1998. While there, she sought her insurance license through the Atlantic School of Business in Toms River, New Jersey. She remained there until she decided that she wanted to resume her enthusiasm for customer service activity which led her to the James A. Connors Associates family in 2002.

In her spare time Ms. Mitelski, a resident of Califon, New Jersey, enjoys family activities, gardening and her passion for painting.
