Jim began his career in the financial services industry in 1983, and joined Merrill Lynch in 2015. His focus is on serving the unique wealth management needs of business owners, entrepreneurs and corporate executives— a dynamic group of clients with distinct financial needs, concerns and opportunities. He has a deep understanding of the often complicated financial needs of business owners and entrepreneurs — from financing and growing a business, to succession strategies, and employee benefits.
Jim's approach to wealth management is consultative and committed to excellence. First, he takes the time to listen and digs deep into client’s financial situations and goals, including their time horizons, liquidity needs and risk tolerance. Then, leveraging the investment insights of Merrill Lynch and the banking convenience of Bank of America, N.A, he follows up with discussions covering a wide range of strategies and services, including portfolio management; stock option analysis; sophisticated retirement planning services; hedging and monetization of concentrated equity positions; wealth preservation and transfer services.
Jim is a specially qualified Senior Portfolio Advisor who, in addition to providing traditional advice and guidance, can draw from his experience to help clients pursue their objectives by building and managing custom investment strategies, selecting from a wide range of Merrill Lynch model portfolios and third-party investment strategies. When servicing clients through the firm’s Investment Advisory Program, a Senior Portfolio Advisor may manage those strategies on a discretionary basis.
Jim holds the following FINRA registrations:
• FINRA Series 7: General Securities Representative
• NASSAA: Uniform combined state law examination
along with being Life Insurance Licensed
Jim is committed to excellence and believes whole heartedly that building long term personal relationships with clients based on credibility, trust, and confidence is paramount to him.
I follow the deep-seated Merrill Lynch tradition of participating in the communities we serve. This drives my interest in spending time volunteering with organizations in our community.

We understand that both your life and the financial markets can change over time. By periodically checking in to discuss changes in your life and revisiting your financial strategy, our goal is to help give you peace of mind* that you're on track to help achieve what's most important to you.

Your life and goals change. We can help you keep track of these changes so they can be reflected in your financial strategy.
MyMerrill is your destination for access to your financial information, secure communications, and a robust offering of tools and capabilities.
*Peace of mind is an aspirational state of mind that clients hope to achieve. There are no guaranteed results following completion of the Goals-Based Wealth Management process because markets can fluctuate and investments can lose value. Advisors work with clients to help them understand how the goals based wealth management process can help to address their concerns, financial situation and priorities.
Helping you reach your goals starts with getting to know you personally. Through understanding what matters most to you, I can help you create a financial strategy that reflects your personality. Only then can I offer an approach that is built around your life priorities and the ongoing advice you need to help you manage fluctuations in the market and changes in your life. Let’s work together to help you achieve your goals.
As Merrill Lynch financial advisors, we will sort through the financial complexities of your life, helping you build a customized investment strategy to pursue your goals.
We put you first, every day.
