Our Team


James W. Warner

James W. Warner, MBA, CFP, CLU, CPCU

Jim has been in the insurance and financial services industry since 1976. He has his Masters in Business Administration, he is a Certified Financial Planner, Certified Life Underwriter and has a Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter’s designation. These along with his years of experience meld into an unbeatable combination to help clients build stronger financial futures.

Jim and Connie have two sons: Will and James who are also Financial Planners. He enjoys “learning” how to play golf, spending time outdoors with his camera and traveling to faraway places. Another passion for Jim is to make the very best homemade wine possible. He said that their 16th year turned out a “red” that is extra special.

Over the years, Jim has served as board member and President of the Chamber of Commerce, President of the Society of Financial Services Professionals, has taught personal finance to thousands of people and “likes to give back more than he takes”. One example of this is the Warner Groups’ recent fund raising effort to benefit Griffin Hospital’s Center for Cancer Care.
