As an Advisor on the Sadler Georgen Harmon Team, James Chalmers strives to deliver ‘Raving Fan’ service to every individual client. Acting as his clients’ Chief Financial Officer, he works to formulate appropriate financial strategies that are based on clients’ unique needs and goals.

James earned his B.S. in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance from the John Cook School of Business at Saint Louis University. Prior to joining Moneta, he worked as a Business Initiatives Manager at Wells Fargo Advisors. In this role, he helped create best practices for financial planning applications, provided project support for many of the firm’s strategic initiatives, and lead the firm’s mobile platform projects aimed at enhancing the client experience.

In 2015, James brought his experience and technical expertise in the financial planning process, specifically with financial planning technologies, to the Sadler Georgen Harmon Team. He enjoys the opportunity to lend his skills to the best interests of his clients through examining client’s current situations, setting financial goals, and measuring progress towards those goals.
