Field Claims Manager

Jim Gardner is a licensed NFIP flood adjuster and Field Claims Manager for Administrative Strategies. He is also a leader in our mentor program.


After high school, Jim’s passion for anything with wheels and a motor led him to pursue a degree with Motorcycle Mechanics Institute in Orlando, Florida. Following graduation, he launched his career with Pilot Catastrophe, where he began his specialization in insurance adjusting and catastrophe management. In late 2012, Hurricane Isaac prompted Jim to follow in his father’s footsteps and enter the world of flood adjusting.


Today, Jim resides in a small town in North Carolina with his wife and three children. When he is not spending time with his family on the lake or camping, he continues to pursue his career in flood management. He works with an active group of adjusters, and oversees recruitment and training of new mentees in addition to upholding his obligation as a home inspection adjuster. Jim prides his mentee training on the philosophy of “paying it forward.” He further explains, “Paying it forward means taking the knowledge that our team has invested and provided to you, and passing it on to the next person.”
