Leaders who care
Constellation Senior Leadership
Jay Koepsell, CPA (inactive)
VP, Finance and Controller
“Constellation has an amazingly talented group of people who are committed to working together for the common good.”
Jay Koepsell guides strategic financial decisions at Constellation, directing the accounting and financial management for Constellation and all of its affiliates. He approaches his role with a heart to help the company be good financial stewards of the resources entrusted to it by policyholders.
In his own words, Jay would say he’s privileged to lead a talented finance team that “keeps the score, analyzes the score, projects the score and presents the score” while providing outstanding service to our company policyholders, board and team members. His experience spans over three decades, with more than 25 of those years devoted to the insurance industry. Joining MMIC in 1998, Jay has served in financial management as assistant controller, controller, and assistant vice president and controller prior to assuming his current role as vice president, finance and controller in 2011.
Jay’s spare time is spent with family and friends. He enjoys being active, whether playing golf, running a 5K, working out or even shoveling snow—except, perhaps, when the wind chill dips below zero. When not active outdoors, Jay follows and roots for all of the Minnesota sports teams. He’s also a big fan of the precious—and rare—nap.
