Jim grew up in Charlotte, NC and went to college at The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina. After graduating with a B.S. in Business Administration, he started work as a Business Analyst with Dun and Bradstreet Corporation. His business degree and experience gained with D & B positioned him for a great opportunity with Consolidated Electrical Distributors, Inc.

After accomplishing many of his corporate goals, he decided to pursue his dream of owning his own business.
