Chris Culpepper joined the Rookis Agency in 1986, mentoring under agency founder N.J. Rookis. He was elected Vice President in 1994 and President in April of 2013.

Chris grew up in the Huntsville area and graduated from the University of Alabama in 1980 with a B.S. in Music Education, taking up residence in Birmingham in 1981. His background in teaching has influenced the Rookis Agency’s practice of providing benefit education in the workplace to better prepare employees when making their important benefit decisions.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

Chris and wife, Patricia, are members of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Birmingham and Rock Creek Mission, located on Lewis Smith Lake, where Chris participates in the music ministry. Chris and Patty are active in the Cullman County Smith Lake community, where Chris served several years as Neighborhood President.

Continuing the tradition began by founder N.J. Rookis in 1967, the Rookis Agency prides itself as a champion of client service. “Employee benefits and benefit communication is important to employers now more than ever because of the changes in today’s health care marketplace. We continue to fill the ever increasing gap caused by insurance co-pays and coinsurance while consulting with employers to help navigate our changing benefit environment.”
