Jim began his financial career as a Collector for a local bank in Maine. He transitioned to Consumer Loan Officer after approximately nine months.
In 1972 Jim became President/CEO of a small community credit union, where he remained for 17.5 years. The credit union grew from a few hundred members to over 3,000 with assets of greater than $30,000,000 during his tenure.
After his credit union career, he became employed by a Third-Party Sender who performed bad check recovery and credit card transactions, inclusive of equipment sales and service.
In 2001, Jim established a Third-Party Sender company performing bad check recovery for small to medium-sized businesses throughout Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire.
After a successful run of 19-plus years, Jim retired and sold the business in 2020.
Once retired, Jim started serving on a NEACH committee and eventually began conducting Third-Party Sender Audits.
