About Jim Guy
Jim joined Cambridge’s executive group in 1999 and served at the broker-dealer level while continuing to lead his independent practice based in Baltimore alongside his wife and business partner, Helen. In that time, Jim was a major force on the Cambridge Board of Directors and provided senior executive leadership for Cambridge’s recruiting and marketing. Jim was instrumental in the development of Cambridge’s fee-based programs, and he also focused on supporting and improving the independent rep-advisor’s business through practice management, marketing initiatives, and product services that help streamline operations, accelerate revenue growth, and build practice equity, all of which were driven by his personal and professional conviction for business continuity and succession planning. The hearts and minds of those associated with Cambridge hold fond memories of Jim as our dear friend and colleague. We are proud to honor his legacy with Cambridge’s Jim Guy Memorial Scholarship program which will award at least two $1,000 scholarships annually to the son or daughter of a Cambridge associate and son or daughter of an independent financial advisor.
