James Gilbert is a high net worth insurance advisor with a sub-specialty in boat and yacht insurance. After 2 years at NYIT studying computer science James realized that he wanted to move money and not computers. He began his career on the New York Stock Exchange at the age of 18 at a specialist firm Stern & Kennedy. While there James climbed the ladder from runner to specialist clerk in only 2 years. At the age of twenty James was one of the youngest specialist clerks on the trading floor. After 4 years on the stock exchange James decided it was time to put his schooling to use and moved back to the East end of Long Island and opened Crave Computers a retail and service oriented store selling custom built computers. At the time James was able to negotiate a reseller agreement with Apple and was one of only a few non-big box stores in New York to do so. After being in the computer industry for 4 years James decided it was time for a change back to a more professional service setting and started his career in the insurance industry. James started working for Cabral Insurance selling boat and yacht insurance. It was a fast paced fun environment and he had finally found his niche. Over the next 10 years James has expanded his knowledge in the insurance industry and gradually moved into specializing in insuring high net worth clientele. James was an owner of JSM Brokerage Inc. an insurance brokerage firm with more than 12,000 clients before coming on and joining the IFG platform. James is married and has two sons. He still enjoys the insurance industry and the diversity he encounters everyday dealing with customers from around the world.
