Jim attended the University of Notre Dame where he was a captain and record-holder on the men’s swim team.   Upon graduation, he joined Andersen Consulting (now Accenture) in its Chicago office.  He worked on global engagements in aerospace & defense, financial services, and professional services verticals, first as an IT consultant and then as a training lead.

Jim then spent 10 years at AbbVie in a variety of roles.  He was in charge of training development for AbbVie’s portfolio of specialty products before taking over training development for all of HUMIRA’s sales and account executive teams.  Jim also managed a HUMIRA (GI) sales district before leading training for several of HUMIRA’s strategic initiatives including the launch of HUMIRA Complete, an integrated patient experience.  Jim is proudest of the 25+ trainers and content developers that he managed at AbbVie, the majority of whom have been promoted into commercial leadership positions.

After AbbVie, Jim took his talents to the agency side and joined SWIFT as Director of Learning & Development.  He’s excited to lead a team that provides cutting-edge learning solutions while acting as a strategic, consultative partner to a variety of clients around the globe.

When not at work, Jim can be found with his wife, Claire, a professional musician, and his two children, Jack and Ava.  Interests include biking, reading, and watching his kids’ different activities.  Admittedly, he is a Notre Dame sports “junkie.”  Mondays at the office are more enjoyable for everyone after a ND win!
