Chief Executive Officer
Jim has held Chief Executive & Senior Management positions in a wide range of organisations. He has also held numerous Board position roles with a number of different UK charities. He has been Chief Exec of Panton McLeod and Panton McLeod Americas since 2011 and fulfils the strategic leadership role for the both businesses. He now limits his charity activities to one Board level position with the Charity he co-founded with Steve Cram in 2000, which has now raised nearly £5m for education, water and community support projects in Africa.
Previous to all that he held high levels of responsibility during 12 years of managing and flying helicopters as an Officer in the British Army, serving with the Army Air Corps.
Random Fact: Having completed the Comrades ultra marathon (56 miles) 4 times between 1999 and his best finishing time in June 2018, he is now trying to re-learn how to ride a bicycle after accepting a challenge to see whether an Iron Man is easier than Comrades (or not)!
