Jim graduated from the University of Florida's Warrington College of Business in 1974 and holds a master's degree in business management. After college he decided to follow in his father's footsteps and joined the Air Force as a combat pilot where he flew all over the world and was stationed in far flung places like the Philippines and Japan.
Upon retiring from the Air Force he entered the marine industry in 1994 with GulfWind Marine/MarineMax located here in the Clearwater, FL area with his brother Tom George. In short order he became one of the top salespeople at MarineMax and remained there for many years, breaking all time records for the number of boats sold. His range of sales encompasses pleasure boats from eleven to over a hundred feet selling new, used, and brokerage yachts locally and internationally.
Sharing in his success, Jim used his talents to train many salespeople at over the years MarineMax in the art of customer service and putting his client's needs above all else. After 25 years with MarineMax, Jim once again retired and joined family here at the Tom George Yacht Group in 2018 with his brother Tom George and nephew Jimmy Rogers.
Jim enjoys traveling and spending as much time as he can with his wife Debbie, children and grandchildren out on the water in hopes of passing the water gene to the next generation.
A man of many talents and extraordinary life experience, he is a yacht broker, MBA recipient, commercial pilot, graduate of the US Air War College, 100-ton Masters Captain's license holder - and yes - he is even an Eagle Scout! Always quick with a smile and a great story, Jim is a superb ally to have in your corner throughout you yacht purchase, ownership and sale experience.
