Jim received a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemical Engineering from Iowa State University and an MBA from Drake University. Jim spent the early part of his career holding management positions for Cargill, Inc. and other processing plants in Iowa, Minnesota, and Tennessee. However, Jim realized his true passion was in helping others reach their financial goals and transitioned into the financial services industry in 2002. Two years later, he became an equity partner in a Knoxville-based planning firm before eventually joining Heritage Investors as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and Investment Advisor Representative in 2009. Now, Jim offers his talents in the operations of Heritage Investors.

Jim and his wife, Joan, have enjoyed more than thirty years of marriage and they take pride in their daughter and son.
