With his combination of multimedia skills, solid judgment and global communications experience, Jim is a must-have addition when a project needs to get done. At Lumentus, he works with firm partners to ensure that all the moving parts of “Paid, Earned, Owned and Shared” client engagements are properly executed.
Jim came to Lumentus after working in the Middle East with the Doha Film Institute and the Doha Tribeca Film Festival. This followed an earlier stint in the region as managing director for the Arab Broadcast Forum.
Prior to his time in the Middle East, Jim served as managing director at News Xchange, an organization where he conceived the idea of delivering international broadcast media conferences in several European cities on behalf of the European Broadcasting Union. He headed all aspects of developing, funding, marketing, programming and managing these highly successful, still-thriving events.
Jim previously provided consultancy services specializing in global communications strategy, media relations and major event management and served as a vice president at Medialink, where he helped transition the corporate video services company from a New York start-up to an international firm. Early in his career, Jim worked at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney as an editorial coordinator and at ABC News as a production associate.
Jim graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Arts in communications.
