Principal Product Manager at Progress Software

Jim is a versatile product manager and a quick learner who has successfully managed products throughout the lifecycle from concept to retirement.  He’s effectively managed products which were built in-house as well as others that were provided by OEM partners and resold through Progress sales channels.  Jim has a great ability to really analyze and look at the financials for a product line and provide direction based on that analysis.  He is customer- and bottom line-focused, very detail oriented, and a pleasure to work with.

Jim is a capable, organized and enthusiastic Product Manager and Business Partner Manager.  Jim has the rare quality of being able to understand both the technical and business issues of a software partnership and make success from often complex relationships.  Jim's responsibilities ranged from working through royalty and go to market model, through to managing channel conflict.  Jim's attention to detail, passion and willingness to defend his turf are exemplary qualities that would benefit most any organization.

Senior Product Manager at Network Engines

Jim is an excellent big-picture product manager, leading the development and introduction of new products throughout the company, while keeping a close eye on the many details that such a position entails.  I strongly recommend Jim for his talents, energy, enthusiasm, and ability to get things done.

Senior Product Manager at Digital Equipment Corporation

I depended on Jim for financial and operational planning data in support of our business and product planning operations. Jim was our more technically savvy standards based (Microsoft Solutions) product manager. He worked in the more challenging segment of our product line because he had the necessary skill set of being innovative, having the technical competency as well as a personality trait of enjoying working in a fast paced environment that was constantly changing…  My highest compliment that I can share about Jim is that I would work with him in the future anytime and would gladly have him as part of my team.
