Jim joined PW in 1993 as business and news editor and, after serving in several different capacities, was named co-editorial director with Michael Coffey in 2010. After Coffey’s retirement, Jim was appointed sole editorial director. Jim, who has been with the magazine since 1993, will retire at the end of the year and become editor-at-large.
