Get to Know Jim!
What was your first job?
I was a “tea boy” on a construction site when I was twelve. This was in Ireland, so I ran errands for the construction workers. Then I became an apprentice goldsmith. That is what led me to my current profession in finance.
If you had a warning label, what would yours say?
The carpenter term “Measure Twice, Cut Once” is my motto, so I would carry that if I had to have a label.
What would you sing at Karaoke night?
“This Is The Sea” by the Waterboys, followed by “Wish You Were Here” by Pink Floyd.
If you had to describe yourself as an animal, which one would it be?
I’d be a dog – loyal and playful.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
My kids, and the two families – my own and the “outlaws” – and they know who they are.
