James assumed Controller responsibilities with Elder Corporation in March of 2008 and moved into the Vice President role in 2019. After hours, there’s a good chance that he’s tossing the baseball or football around in the backyard with his two boys or pretend shopping at his daughters imaginary store in the basement. James is a self-proclaimed DIY-er, and enjoys a good home remodeling project. He graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in accounting and holds the CPA and CMA certifications (which stands for Certified Management Accountant, not to be confused with Country Music Award holder).
