Director of Communications
Jim is our communicator extraordinaire. He is an award-winning journalist. Jim has worked as a reporter and an editor at seven daily newspapers across the nation including Seattle, Tacoma and Olympia.
Jim’s deadlines these days are for Washington Retail though he says: “Once a journalist, always a journalist.”
We are so lucky to have his experience and eye for detail when representing WR in our weekly e-newsletter. He is the host when interviewing legislators for our video broadcasts and podcasts. Jim also is active on WR’s growing family of social media outlets.
Jim works closely with the CEO and COO to develop important messages regarding our lobbying initiatives that will be released to the media.
Jim obsesses over baseball and hockey. He’s excited that Seattle will join the National Hockey League in 2021 and that a rebuilt Key Arena will be the team’s new home. Can we say sports writer next?
Please say hello to Jim.
