Jim brings outstanding business and leadership experience to CEO Global Network after a long and successful career in the food distribution business.
After 12 years spent growing and running his family-owned frozen food distribution company, Jim successfully merged the business with Gordon Food Service (GFS) in 1996. Following a ten-year partnership in the Ontario market, Jim subsequently sold his shares to GFS but stayed with the company in a senior leadership capacity. When he retired from corporate life in November of 2011, Jim was Vice President of GFS Canada and fully responsible for GFS’s Canadian distribution business.
Jim believes that people and strategy are what make the difference in business, and has worked with us since 2011 to help CEOs become better at these two key business opportunities.
