James Granger


James’ philosophy in business revolves around the principles of customer service and servant leadership.   After college and spending the majority of the first 20 years of his career in the Food and Beverage Industry, the mentors he had taught him the main principles of great service to the customer.  In 2015, he moved to the Health Care Industry and worked for the rural hospital, Southeastern Health in Lumberton NC, where his wife and 2 children have lived for over 23 years.

It was at Southeastern Health while reporting to the Administrative Team as the Business Development Officer, he learned the importance of servant leadership in a rural community Hospital that serves patients beyond Lumberton that reside in similar counties in Southeastern North Carolina.  That Servant Leadership mentality not only applies to the patient or client, but also to the fellow co-worker. 

At a point in our history where mental health and addiction medicine is at its highest critical point in history, James believes those principles learned of great service and servant leadership to both the patient or client and the co-worker are essential to the success of all involved in healthcare today. 

 In his spare time, he enjoys cooking, saltwater fishing and spending time with family and friends.
