James Newman, PresidentJames Newman, President

With decades of experience in manufacturing management, James Newman has felt the profitable excitement from creating a culture of success through staffing with good job-fits/top performers; and has felt the “no-fun” challenge of attending to poor job-fits/performers.

His manufacturing experience was fabricating structural and miscellaneous steel for the construction industry where he had achieved over 20 years of experience as a Division Vice President.  A couple of his favorite project memories are furnishing the stairs and railings for Comerica Park (Detroit Tigers), and furnishing the structural steel for the highly unique University of Toledo Art Building at the Toledo Museum of Art designed by world renown Frank Gehry.

Organizational development was an exciting and rewarding achievement that motivated the establishment of JAN Associates, LLC in 2003.  Helping leverage the value of “win-win” that is achieved by staffing with good job-fits is exciting, rewarding, and fun.

Jim has achieved a Bachelor of Science in Industrial/Mechanical Engineering from the University of Toledo, and Masters of Science in Business Administration from Indiana University.
