As is the case with most people I meet, I met Jim through one of the members of Network Texas, Jan Stephenson. Jim and I both have an interest in art and politics, amongst other things.
Over the past 4 years I’ve gotten to know Jim, I can tell you that he is integrity-plus! In all he does. I guess that’s one of the reasons the citizens of Oakridge North, keep electing him Mayor, and his church elected him as an Elder.
Now that Jim has retired from the railroad, he has launched his own arbitration business. The best way to learn more about this is to sit down with him and have a conversation. At some time in all of our lives we run into situations where an arbitrator can come in handy. Jim is the guy to make it a win-win.
Good luck Jim!
Jim is a great guy with years of experience in arbitration and mediation while working for the railroad. He will be outstanding in helping you with conflict resolution or mediation. I know that for sure!
