Jim Owens
Author, Speaker, Consultant

For more than thirty years, author, speaker and principal consultant Jim Owens has held leadership positions in national, international and community banks. He has built and led teams through mergers, sales, acquisitions and process improvements. As a former banker, Jim has a keen grasp of how a culture is built on trust, understanding, strategic planning and diligent execution of those plans can reduce turnover, improve top line revenue and lower operating costs. With the help of his team of associate consultants, when appropriate, he's able to complement his own expertise with their assistance. Jim is the author of 40 Lessons in Leadership and the forthcoming Negotiation and Solution Selling for Bankers.
