Speaker Bio
While the companies in Jim’s background are varied, the common thread is on deploying technologies to help small and medium sized businesses succeed. From his early days in tech, driving companies like Apex Voice Communications, Signius Corporation and Affinity Internet, to his current capacity in building restaurant industry start up, Kitchen United, Jim’s blunt but thoughtful management style and focus on relentless evolution build strong, energized teams. Whether in highly distributed enterprises like Signius, Affinity or Pictage or in smaller technology startups like Apex or Bizmago, Jim’s direct connection with his customers is a hallmark of his career. Dynamic change in the restaurant industry and the opportunity to combine his technical and enterprise background with his knowledge of restaurant operations connected Jim to Kitchen United as CEO in December of 2017.

A love of food and hospitality drove Jim to take the plunge and buy a restaurant four years ago and Town Kitchen and Grill has become a fixture in its home community, Montrose, California. Jim is actively involved in managing "Town," and works with his chef on dish and menu design. (If pressed, he's even capable of jumping in to help on the hot line!)
