Jim graduated from Louisiana State University in 1983 with a BS in Accounting and moved to Dallas to take a job with Arthur Young & Co (now Ernst & Young). As luck would have it, he entered the workforce at almost exactly the same time as the IBM PC. Recognizing the PC’s potential, Jim gained expertise on a variety of new small business software programs, using it to help increase the productivity of the other accountants.
After a seven-year stint as the Controller for the Dallas Cowboys where he implemented their first computer-based accounting system and built their first network, Jim left the team to join Karl Springer at Middleton, Burns & Davis, PC to manage their information technology and start a consulting practice.
Today Jim serves Sagiss as a technological guru, staying ahead of trends in the business computing industry and ensuring Sagiss clients have the best IT support available today. He also serves on the customer advisory board for Cisco Umbrella(formerly OpenDNS).
Outside of Sagiss, Jim enjoys woodworking and is an accomplished musician, having spent years playing blues piano in and around Dallas.
