Meet James Hamilton



The Biz Stuff…

Scientific background, entrepreneurial spirit, 20 years in the property & casualty space; it’s like James was destined to join the Combs Crew. In his professional life, James has worked for insurance heavyweights such as Hartford, Zurich, and Chubb; he’s been a claims adjuster, litigation specialist, and 3rd-party administrator; and sprinkled among all this are three successful service businesses he started, grew, and exited. James is bringing this extensive track record to Combs & Company, along with his personal business mantra: listen, question, learn, and implement. Then repeat. Not much more to say after that.


The Fun Stuff…

James was an internationalist from day one – his mom (Mexican) and dad (English) met in NYC, moved to the UK when James was two, and he returned to the U.S. to attend university (what we call college). James started out studying astrophysics (Sean is so excited about that; the rest of the office, not so much), but switched majors to better work on his party skills. James speaks fluent Spanish and Latin (really?), and some Italian and Russian (thanks dad); he also has a deep appreciation of music and food (thanks mom), even going so far as to learn tango milonga and swing (dances, not food). James still enjoys viewing the universe through a telescope (stop smiling, Sean); he hikes often, watches football (aka soccer), and builds his own computers. Whew.
