College of Business Administration, BBA Accounting and Real Estate, 1991

Personal Note:  "Who ever thought a native Cincinnatian from the West Side would ever leave before retirement? As I look back at my relocation from Cincinnati to Naples, Florida I realize that there are many similarities between the two cities: travel on Interstate 75, Fifth Third Bank, Skyline Chili and a quality of life that is clearly grounded in “Midwest Values.” One of the things I miss the most since leaving Cincinnati is my beloved “Red and Black.” The Sunshine State is a wonderful place to live, work and raise a family, but it is my personal goal to find and connect with as many fellow Bearcats in Florida as possible."

Career Achievements: In 2002, Jim relocated to Naples, Florida with Fifth Third Bank. In October 2009 he was named SVP, Business Banking Executive for South Florida Affiliate. He manages the groups responsible for commercial/business banking clients from Bradenton, Florida, south to Naples, on the west coast of Florida, and on the east coast from West Palm Beach to Ft Lauderdale.

Career Highlights: Jim earned his Accounting/Real Estate degree at the University of Cincinnati College of Business Administration in 1991. Prior to joining Fifth Third Bank Jim held several positions with Hamilton County in Cincinnati, Ohio and had an honorable 8-year career with the United States Army.
