With over 30 years of experience in publishing, licensing, e-commerce, mergers & acquisitions and business development, Jim provides an incredibly comprehensive level of business expertise and sales leadership.

In the early 2000’s Jim was presented with an opportunity to help grow InnerWorkings, a Chicago-based print management company. He built a sales team with over 200 salespeople, and in a few short years, without a lot of outside capital, he helped take the start-up from inception to a public company with $100 million in revenue in August of 2006. In addition to all of his management responsibility, he couldn’t get away from his true passion of doing the deal.

As 2007 was winding down, Jim shifted gears to take a little time away and recharge the start-up fire. During that time, he was assisting in business plan evaluations and got into the publishing business in Hawaii and the Desert Southwest. Jim developed successful business models in various industries such as the tourist arena, subscription base, and direct mail coupons, while magazines were still profitable, and sold those companies throughout 2013 to 2019. Jim also served as an executive for JigoCity, an international daily deal firm operating in six countries.

Jim continues to lend his experience to a variety of business endeavors in his next chapter, working with entrepreneurs and companies looking to develop a unique perspective on their business as they write their own journey.
