Lives in Charleston, South Carolina
In 1997, Jim joined Blackbaud as a Raiser’s Edge Product Specialist and has continually supported and consulted on the database software beginning with The Raiser’s Edge for MS-DOS through its latest version RE NXT. His first year was spent almost exclusively taking calls and resolving Raiser’s Edge client issues on the Customer Support Hotline. Jim went on to become an instructor for Blackbaud University and helped pioneer the Raiser’s Edge training program for the company. Traveling extensively throughout North America, performing regional and onsite trainings, hosting user groups and rolling out major product releases like RE7, Jim became acutely aware of the challenges his clients face. Throughout his career with Blackbaud he received many individual honors for leadership, hard work, dedication and client satisfaction. In 2001 Jim founded Bradford Consulting Group and continued to train and consult on the Raiser’s Edge until 2019.. In October of 2019 Jim joined NPact.com to deliver new client implementations and conversions of RE NXT directly for Blackbaud.
