Jim Himes was not only one of the most brilliant sales executives I have ever worked with, he was one of the most caring. When I moved to Memphis as Sales Maanger of a JSA associated with Jim’s station, Jim worked quickly to make sure I was welcome and to make sure that I felt at home immediately. He didn’t have to do that. All I asked was that his team contribute to my success at the JSA. Jim did that in spades He included me in everything his team did making my success easier. When I became Sales Manager of the digital assets of Jim;s bigger station as well, he continued to make sure that his team got me to and beyond my numbers. A great person and a winner in every sense.Congratulations Jim!!!
