Senior Vice President
Jim is the backbone of Savoy’s overall broker, carrier and vendor partner relationships at Savoy, which is fitting as he’s the employee with the longest tenure, joining Savoy in 1991 as its third employee. As he puts it, he’s responsible for the “health, happiness and productivity of Savoy’s partner relationships,” which can be attributed to his ability to build and maintain strong relationships and high-levels of integrity.
Jim is also accountable for overseeing new and existing business initiatives—which includes vetting and expanding Savoy’s carrier and vendor partnerships, increasing efficiencies and ensuring global corporate revenue and growth.
In addition to playing an integral role in Savoy’s success since its early foundations, Jim actively works toward improving and progressing the employee benefits industry through various memberships and legislative endeavors. He’s been an active member of NJAHU for over 20 years and held the position of Northern NJ Chapter Treasurer for over 15 years. In 2015, Jim was also appointed to represent Savoy on the NAHU General Agency Principals Council—an elite group of industry professionals dedicated to serving the legislative and regulatory concerns of brokers and their clients.
If Jim wasn’t racing around expanding and sustaining Savoy’s external relationships, his dream profession would be racing around as a Grand Prix driver. Jim’s positive energy stems first from his family, including his two daughters, the satisfaction of being able to problem solve and help Savoy’s partners, and last, but certainly not least, his two favorite sports teams—the New York Yankees and Villanova’s Basketball Team.
“The sun will come out tomorrow. We are constantly faced with seemingly insurmountable situations—address them quickly, effectively and with control—this will help you excel and more importantly maintain your sanity.”
