James Clemens started out in business at an early age. By the age of 8, James was being taught how the family business was operated and worked his way through each process as he grew up.
This unusual childhood was ideally-suited for James and his desire to learn how things work. As a third-generation Italian designer/builder, James has been instrumental in hundreds of businesses and he owns a few more with his wife, Gina.
By the time James was 18, he had amassed a solid foundation of skills while working full time while doing schoolwork. Shortly after, he decided to shake things up and went to work as the live-in construction superintendent for a condominium on Panama City Beach. This shift was the jolt that led to James meeting Gina.
Together, James and Gina set off on new adventures that fueled new desires to start a business. They wanted a business model that could support them both and allow them to spend more time together, too. And James needed to fight the addiction to build and race GM performance cars. Gina and researching business ideas were just the distractions he needed.
Mica Specialties was started in 1992 to provide high-end, highly-performing products to consumers, businesses and the U.S. Government. We are still here today working smart for our clients. We enjoy the process of creating, designing, and building unique products, and we understand the needs of a business to succeed. We are small business specialists.

A fun fact about James is that he started using DOS 1.1 around 1982, and was a power-user of every version thereafter, including all versions of Windows. James later became a paid Alpha Software Tester for Microsoft, Microsoft Partner, and OEM Builder. All the while designing and creating. James always stayed grounded in the study of architecture, construction, and engineering. James is very attentive and endlessly curious. And these traits make for fun, yet productive days at the agency.
James brings forth over 30 years of marketing experience. He was named the 2015 Top 3 Most Inspirational Member with the North America Google Partner Community and a 2016, 2017, and 2018 Google Top Contributor for AdWords and Google Partners. This led to becoming a PE in 2018 and James is now a highly-esteemed PE with Google - and recently presented an International Award as the Google PE Ambassador ‘20-’21 recipient. Yes, James is a very dedicated technologist and advertising professional.
With his wide-open thirst for knowledge, you can be sure that James enjoys a wide range of subjects.

These are just some of the many areas of interest.
