Jim has over 20 years’ experience in international trade, global supply chain and export business development and operations. A CPD member of the Institute of Export & International Trade. Ambassador for Suffolk Branch of The Institute of Directors covering Brexit and International Trade. Founder and Director of Your Export Department Ltd.
Jim was drawn to export management in the mid 1990s having chosen a degree in European Business Administration. He then went on to develop a career in international trade and export management, predominantly working in the SME bracket for manufacturing companies across various sectors. Four years working as an International Trade Advisor for UK Trade & Investment (now called DIT) sowed the seed for what he would later turn into his own support business for UK exporters.
Jim is passionate about seeing UK SMEs succeeding overseas, especially during these changing times when the UK’s position globally is in flux.
