Jim Raffel: Business Development & Technology
His Whatness: He has a degree in printing management from Rochester Institute of Technology and an MBA from Keller Graduate School of Management. He has almost 30 years of experience managing projects and businesses he has started. At least a dozen times a year, he can be found on the road speaking about printing and color or social media and website creation. He’s owned and operated his own business focusing on website development and content strategies since 2011.
What He Brings To The Table: Jim’s preference is to focus on the measurable results of the work we do with our clients. We don’t want to build you a new website because your competitor has one. We want to build you a new website to generate more leads and bring you more business.
Hobbies: Cats, coffee, mountain hiking and urban exploring. When he’s not busy being an early morning coffee snob at home with two cats, you’ll find him exploring the urban landscapes during business travel. For real fun, he likes to head out and hike some mountain trails.
