Whoever said "nice guys finish last" certainly hasn't met the inimitable James Campo. The Sewall's Point resident, who is a certified financial planner and president of Campo Insurance and Investment Services in Stuart, dedicates his time and talent to the community.

"I live a fortunate life," Campo said. "It is not only my choice, but my responsibility to help the less-fortunate and to better this community, which has been such a blessing for me and my family."

Because of his commitment to the community, he recently was honored with the Outstanding Philanthropic Leadership Award at the ninth annual Arthur E. Turner Excellence in Entrepreneurship Awards program at the Turner Education Center on the West Palm Beach campus of Northwood University. Campo, president of the Association of Fundraising Professionals Treasure Coast chapter, regularly meets with nonprofit organizations and has helped them raise $50 million through the Planned Giving Council's Leave A Legacy program — a program that educates the public on the benefits of estate planning.
