Jim started his career in sales and account management, gaining a solid real world understanding of the daily drive and perseverance required to deliver success. He used his practical experience to design innovative sales training programs for sales teams throughout the UK and Ireland.
As his career progressed Jim took on a variety of different roles ranging from; Head of Commercial Marketing to European Strategy Director, as well as various general management and Managing Director appointments. Through delivering consistently in each of these roles, Jim was able to build a reputation for creating winning teams, building compelling strategies, as well as systematic delivery and reliability of execution. Ultimately, Jim went on to take on senior leadership responsibilities as Vice President, within the only technology company in the FTSE100, the Sage Group PLC.
