• Jim Atkinson, CFP®, AIF®, MPAS

    Managing Director, Columbus Capital

Jim is a man who has an amazing zest for life, “life” being the connection among God’s creations – Humans, Animals, Music, History and Nature.

Jim has great memories of his childhood in Central Ohio and of the happy times shared with his family. Many of his holiday memories are filled one of Jim’s favorite passions – Fishing. Every holiday and family event contained fishing as a core activity and Jim continues that love today.

Life has taken Jim all over the country. He has visited all 50 of the United States and every Canadian province except for Prince Edward Island. These trips often involved hiking, fishing, hunting or floating great streams and rivers.

KNOWLEDGE forms the cornerstone of Jim’s life as he is always learning and desiring to learn. God has blessed Jim with tremendous capacity which he expresses through endless facts and anecdotes along with expertise in any number of things. One of Jim’s great joys is sharing that knowledge with others.

Finally, Jim wakes up in the early morning to help people. As a husband and father of two adult children and four grandchildren, his compassion, empathy, and faith define his life’s purpose: improving the lives of every person he touches every day.
