I have worked with Jim at Cardtronics for the last 4 years and during that time, he has proven to be a great interactive marketing partner and a collaborative team player. He demonstrated his problem-solving ability and technological knowledge when we worked together on company website redesigns, mapping applications and client ATM locators. Beyond his engaging personality, his breadth and depth of skill and experience in digital marketing and user experience is hard to beat. Both strategic and hands-on, Jim keeps long range objectives in sight while reacting to daily changes in business with agility. He is extremely business-oriented and can take complex IT concepts and translate their business value into everyday language. This was truly valuable while we partnered on projects with multiple stakeholders, on tight timelines and high expectations. Jim's ability to define and translate high level vision into tactical executions has helped create cohesiveness between team members of our cross-functional teams. On a personal level, I have always enjoyed working with Jim because of his positive attitude, work ethic and respect for others. I highly recommend him.
Jim is a highly skilled web developer with particular skill in designing attractive and intuitive user interfaces that work for real people. He has a great "can do" attitude and is always happy to go the extra mile. He forms the back bone of Cardtronics' online marketing efforts and is a core part of the marketing team. Jim is both a strong interactive developer as well as a strong interactive (and print) designer. He has a good eye for design and layout. He is also well versed in SQL and .net and can make his vision come to life on the web. But he is much more than just a developer or designer, he is a business and marketing expert that makes his work on the web come in line with business needs to drive meaningful communication and, ultimately, revenue.
Jim and I were able to collaborate on numerous -- and varied -- projects ranging from traditional television production to graphic design and multimedia streaming to cutting edge animation, marketing and original programming. Jim's mind is always moving at 100mph, and he is without a doubt the most purely CREATIVE person with whom I've ever worked.
