With more than 20 years in executive level positions with fortune 500 companies, Jeremy is considered a financial industry thought leader who brings energy and passion to helping people preserve wealth. Jeremy couldn’t ignore his inherent entrepreneurial spirit and desire to create a financial services and wealth management firm of his own and in 2016 Coastal Wealth was created.
Through Coastal Wealth, Jeremy created a firm with a family feel – where financial professionals are treated like clients, and clients have experienced professionals at their fingertips to address most aspects of their financial lives. This is at the core of what Coastal Wealth was built on and every day work is put in, to continue to learn, adapt, and grow across all areas of life. This shows evident in the firm’s mission: To navigate opportunities and redefine what is possible.
Over the past 4 years, Jeremy has grown Coastal Wealth into the largest firm in Southeast Region and leads a team of more than 400 financial professionals, agents and support staff with over 28 offices across Florida and Georgia. Coastal Wealth focuses on financial planning, protection, property and casualty insurance and group/executive benefits.

Today, Coastal Wealth services over 100,000 clients with over $20 billion of life insurance in force and $12 billion in assets serviced.
Originally from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Jeremy’s entrepreneurial nature was influenced by his father, who worked his way up in the auto industry from selling cars to owning dealerships. Jeremy’s top personal goal is to have a positive impact on his family, employees and community. He loves that his role at Coastal Wealth allows him to balance the “mind of a capitalist and heart of a social worker,” by helping clients reach their financial goals while living his personal dream as an entrepreneur.
