“I've got an idea meets can do. You can't ask for a much more powerful combination. Jim brings a creative but also practical perspective to solving the problems facing his team. As a leader he hires good people, sets clear expectations, commits to the needed resources and follows up with recognition for good work.”
"Jim is a man who continues to reinvent himself. Never afraid of hard work, he is the one who will conquer new innovation before other people really understand that it's on the horizon. He's exacting. Period."
"The Pablo Picasso of News Marketing. He will get your company into tip top shape and market the hell out of your clients, with proven results."
“Jim has been a leader in our group introducing new techniques in marketing in a multiplatform world. During this process he has passed on his knowledge, sharing his successes and failures so that we may learn new techniques to make our outreach better.”
“Terrific guy - who "gets it", ...senses the right people for the job, manages creatively, positively - gets the most from everyone - and we're all happy about it.”
“I've had the pleasure of working for Jim, not once but twice. He is extremely creative and a great leader. Jim is passionate about what he does and passes that on to the people he works with. I hope I have the opportunity to work with him in the future.”
