"Jim has the ability to think strategically with colleagues on a management team, and to subsequently act tactically to translate that vision into action. He managed internal resources (staff and budgets) [during the time I worked for him], as well as outside support (agencies, printers, counselors, etc.) to achieve team, department, division and corporate objectives. While doing all that, Jim also maintained outstanding relationships with local, national and trade journalists. As a result, Jim managed to do the near-impossible: he made a clear contribution to his corporation's bottom line as Director of Communications." Bob Budlong, P2R Communications
