Leadership

  • James Starnes
    CFP®
    General Agent of MassMutual Texas Gulf Coast

    I’m proud to lead MassMutual Texas Gulf Coast, a holistic planning practice known for excellence in sales leadership, diverse resources, innovation, and advisor support. A lifelong background as an athletic coach has instilled in me the principles and drive to bring out the best in others. I believe in investing in the success of our advisors, and providing them the means to thrive.

    Our firm offers a process-driven approach and a host of resources to help our advisors realize their full potential. A dedicated Case Design team, teaming opportunities, extensive training platform and individualized support – including a personal “concierge” upon joining the firm —uniquely position our advisors as well-equipped, lifelong partners for clients. We “push the envelope” every day to improve ourselves and our service to clients. 

    Nothing is more gratifying to me than bringing out the best in our people, and nothing is more satisfying than knowing that our advisors feel valued. Though I work hard to achieve that goal, I play hard too, coaching baseball and youth football, as well as enjoying quality time with my four wonderful children.
