Jim Brown was named the Business Person of the Year on Thursday, September 9th at the Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce Annual Membership Luncheon. Brown is a founding partner of Synergi Partners Inc. and ERS, both in downtown Florence. The award is sponsored by Wells Fargo, and making the presentation was John Bankson, Senior Vice President and National Director of Closely Held Asset Management for Wells Fargo and a member of the Florence Chamber board. Brown said he doesn’t seek the spotlight but he thanked the Chamber and award sponsor Wells Fargo for the recognition. He also thanked his family for their support in what is often a 24/7 job. “I am very lucky to have great partners,” Brown said. “Florence is a special place. It is a great place to raise a family and to start a business.”
