About the Editor
Chief Blogger, Site Editor
Jim is the Chief Blogger, Surface Dweller, and Head of Social Media for Emerson Automation Solutions. The surface dweller metaphor comes from an article he wrote, Surface Key to Social Network Success. It highlights the importance of organizations having people out at the surface of their organizations to better listen and respond to the needs of their customers and prospective customers.
Jim’s 30+ year career at Fisher Controls and in turn Emerson (who acquired Fisher in 1992) spans sales support, product application specialist, alliance manager, product manager for the DeltaV development, marketing communications manager, and now social marketing leader.
He’s received a BSEE from the University of Texas at Austin and an MBA from the University of New Orleans. His career began as a Systems Engineer with Conoco North American offshore oil & gas production in New Orleans in the mid 1980s before coming to Fisher Controls in the late 1980s.
