Jim is an aggressive and creative business professional with a track record of relationship-based leadership
success in both for-profit and non-profit business enterprises. The foundation of his success has been built on excellence in people management, inspiring individual risk taking, creative problem solving, and personal accountability. He believes successful leadership is based on having a servant attitude and knowing the best step is sometimes to step aside and let others flourish.
He received a BS in Materials Science Engineering from Purdue University in May of 1981 and an MS in Material Science Engineering from the University of Vermont in 1986. Immediately following graduation from Purdue, he joined IBM at their Vermont facility and stayed for a mere 30 years. In 2011, he joined the Purdue Alumni Association, as Executive Vice President and COO. He also served as the interim President and CEO. Relocating to Wilmington NC, in 2016, he took the job that made him the most uncomfortable and challenged him to grow his skills — Executive Director of The Children’s Museum of Wilmington.
