"Do something that your future self will thank you for."
James began his career in 2001 in Willoughby, Ohio. After working several years for large, investment firms, James saw there was a void between what clients needed and what these firms were able to provide. From that experience, James Co-Founded Nova to create an environment where each client is managed as an individual.
