Regional New South Wales gave us this year’s winner, with the judges being impressed by James’ track record and commitment to his local community around Young, NSW. His core values of honesty, integrity, caring, respect and commitment combined with his attitude, enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit have earnt him the respect and admiration of his peers, customers and insurance providers.

He frequently goes above and beyond to help his community including borrowing a motorbike to move cattle from toxic spillage, spending all night sweeping water from shops after a storm and using a front loader to remove fallen water tanks from rooftops. After one particular storm, he was to be found walking the streets of a remote township lodging claims for residents regardless of their Insurer or intermediary.
