10 Questions with Ticomix's Jim King, VP Sales - Cisco/Networking

Written by Ticomix on February 19, 2013, 11:10 am

Jim King joined Ticomix at the end of 2012, bringing with him over 13 years' experience in the field of sales, sales management, and business leadership. His clientele has ranged from small businesses to large, Fortune 500 companies. Prior to joining Ticomix, Jim spent 8 years helping build and operate a successful payroll and human resource consulting firm, during which time he also oversaw the networking, software implementation and disaster recovery aspects of the firm's IT department.

And Now, 10 Questions with Jim King…

  1. What was your first business leadership role? Teaching private and group Tennis lessons. It was essentially my first business venture.
  2. What excites you most about the field of business technology? As businesses continue to look for ways to reduce costs and create efficiencies, technology more often than not plays a key role in that solution.
  3. What is the biggest challenge your industry faces right now? I think that one of Ticomix’s core values says it best: Be Adaptive. The one thing that is certain is change. You can adapt to change or let the world move on without you.
  4. What new or recent trend will have the biggest impact on your field, and why? Everyone is talking about the Cloud. I believe this will change how we use and interact with technology. I also think it will eliminate some barriers for some small businesses to grow.
  5. Who do you feel is the most influential person in the technology industry, and why? I think you could have made the argument that Steve Jobs, while he was alive, was the most influential. Apple has created some really innovative products. This has had an effect on how we live our lives, socialize and conduct business. I’m not trying to take anything away from Microsoft, certainly they have created an industry that, if not for them, I may not be working here at Ticomix.
  6. What is your favorite quote? “It is what it is.” I’m not sure where I heard it, but it gets right to the point of most matters.
  7. What’s your favorite non-job-related pastime? Golf is a favorite one. I’m not very good at it so I continue to try and master the game. I also enjoy time with my wife and kids. Both my kids are grown, so every moment they choose to make time for my wife and I is wonderful.
  8. What’s one thing your co-workers don’t know about you? That I worked in the fishing canneries in Kodiak Alaska one summer back in my college days.
  9. What’s the last book you read? What book are you reading now? The 7 Irrefutable Rules of Small Business Growth by Steven Little. I’m currently reading The Mackay MBA of Selling in the Real World by Harvey Mackay.
  10. If you could invite any four people to a dinner party, who would you invite and why? I would invite my Mom and my Dad (who is deceased). They gave me my love of trying new foods and my love for wine. Of course I would want my wife and two kids there too, for the same reason I gave earlier!
