A Word from James  

As a driven business creator and global entrepreneur, I have successfully developed and expanded sales for companies from around the globe, across multiple business sectors during my 30 year professional career. 

Along with years of practical experience and proven track record of developing innovative high-growth businesses, I bring a robust contact list and a unique ability to create and articulate visions and strategies to execute business plans 

I am a terrific storyteller and passionate communicator with great people skills capable of  building a rapport with an audience of any size. 

My career started as a commodity trader in the early 1980's for a large international trading house. I subsequently co-founded a global trading and shipping company with offices in New York, Hong Kong and Beijing at 26 Year of age. 

I built the company to be a global trading and international entity with offices in over a dozen countries (and 4 different US States) achieving in excess of USD 800 Million in sales. 

I sold the majority of my business interests in 2005 as an early retirement in order to take an “as long as needed” sabbatical to be the caregiver to my cancer stricken wife and help raise our two young children.
