I have had the pleasure of working with Jim during his time at Wyeth as well as Pfizer most recently. What differs Jim most from others is his vision and ability to orchestrate change. He confidently represents his beliefs even when it goes against ‘business as usual’.
Jim takes a big picture approach combined with his considerable team building and leadership skills to effect powerful change for the business units he supports. Instead of focusing on needs more founded in a particular system or user group which are indicative of a more holistic business issue, Jim focuses on the data landscape and business process issues. In re-architecting the flow and availability of information and enhancing the overall lab operation, he addresses many of the lower-level issues while achieving more significant ROI.
