At age 12, James founded his first company, which he grew into a multi-million dollar corporate structure. In 2005, he sold the business and set out to pursue a promising new venture in finance. Creative juices flowing and eager to succeed, 23-year-old James became the CEO of the largest debt management company in Canada with several hundred investors. Soon, failure came knocking at his door. It was a critical and devastating failure which led to the discovery of some of the greatest wisdom an entrepreneur can learn and has contributed to his greatest successes.
Like many successful entrepreneurs, he picked himself up from bankruptcy and talked his family into investing in his next venture which led him to become the world’s youngest CEO of a publicly traded company on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
This accomplishment was then followed by countless others including the founding and later sale of a Luxembourg grantor trust company, a variety of real estate projects, and several successful service businesses.
Today, James’ primary focus is being a passionate entrepreneur, investor and real estate developer in Central Florida.
