Jim partnered with Larry Johannes and Scott Howell to build a company that redefines the agency model for clients competing in the age of content. That includes doing away with departmental boundaries to encourage deeper thinking, seamless production and more engaging creative.
Jim spent the last decade as Executive Creative Director at Moroch, where he won major awards for McDonald’s and Coca-Cola, rebranded the Travel Channel, relaunched the National Osteoporosis Foundation and helped move Citracal from the number four calcium brand to number one. Prior to that, Jim owned his own agency, Coffee/Black Advertising, where his clients included 7-Eleven, Texas Land & Cattle Steakhouse, DFW International Airport, Foresthills Hotels & Resorts and Uniden Electronics. He also co-created and launched Buzz Public Relations and WideEye Interactive.
Jim is a member of Adweek’s Creative Allstars. His work has been honored with an Emmy nomination, a Cannes International Film Festival Award, multiple gold Addy Awards including Best of Show, and appearances in the One Show and CA Magazine.
He is also active in charitable and philanthropic endeavors and is a past board member of The Make-A-Wish Foundation.
