President, Crane Renovation Group
Jim joined Crane Renovation Group as President in 2014 to lead the company on an aggressive growth plan, drawing on his extensive experience in rebranding and growing companies. Crane Renovation Group is comprised of five companies, headquartered in Columbus, Ohio: Able Roofing, a full service home renovation and roofing company in Columbus, Ohio; Armor Distribution, a distributor of home improvement materials in Columbus, Ohio; Mr. Roof, a full service home renovation and roofing company with locations in Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee; Contractors, Inc., a full service exterior and interior renovation and remediation group with locations across the southern United States; and Responsiv Disaster Recovery, a full service mitigation and restoration company.
In 2000, Jim joined Crane Group as the Vice President of Sales and Marketing of their siding group (formerly known as VIPCO). Jim led the rebranding of the company to Crane Performance Siding and became President in 2002. The company continued to grow and ultimately was rebranded as Exterior Portfolio by Crane. In 2011, Jim led the successful sale of the company to Georgia Gulf Corporation (now Axiall), and was able to keep his entire key management team intact during this process. In fact, when the decision was made to merge Royal Siding and Exterior Portfolio’s sales and marketing teams, Jim was chosen to lead the new group. Jim eventually led the merger of Royal Trim and Mouldings into the group.
Jim currently serves on the board of directors of The Charles School at Ohio Dominican University, and previously served on the boards of the Crittenton Community School as Vice Chair, and VSI as Board Chair. Additionally, he has served as a Big Brother since 2006.
Jim received his Bachelor of Science in Marketing from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
