Jim defines the strategic direction of the Urbana product and implements strategies to maximize its potential. As the point person for each Urban Moment development, he is also responsible for all equity relationships and investor reporting, ensuring 100% transparency in project performance and management.
Jim is driven to exceed expectations at every turn. He started his career at Schlumberger in Texas where he was put on a management fast track, holding positions as District Manager, Sales Manager and Reservoir Systems Manager. From there, Jim became VP of Sales then President at Application Group (AG), building business relationships with PeopleSoft, Oracle and other tech sector companies. After taking the reins at Market-Touch, a sales and marketing company, he found himself in the World Trade Center on 9/11/01. This watershed moment convinced Jim not only that life was short, but that radical change was coming to the market. With that realization, he hired a new CEO and moved to Tucson where he developed several residential and commercial projects, eventually underpinning his entry into the Austin market.
Jim received his Bioscience Engineering degree from the University of Arizona.
