Chairman & CEO
Jim founded InfoWorks in January 1997, and serves as Chairman and CEO. Under Jim's leadership, InfoWorks has built a reputation for outstanding client service, employee satisfaction, and sustainable profitable growth. In 2010, InfoWorks formed an ESOP and, in 2012, converted to a 100% ESOP-owned company in order to allow its employees to fully participate in the excellent financial results that InfoWorks has achieved. Jim has balanced company growth with client satisfaction in a controlled manner that has avoided any layoffs. His philosophy is that high employee morale leads to superior client satisfaction and he makes hiring decisions based on the integrity, attitude, and aptitude of prospective employees. In 2014, InfoWorks was awarded the Tennessean's Top Work Place award. The company has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Nashville by the Nashville Business Journal for six of the last seven years. Prior to forming InfoWorks, Jim spent 32 years with IBM in Nashville in various management and marketing positions. In his last position at IBM, he managed several Global Services consulting practices over a three-state area. Previous to that, he managed IBM's business partner programs and distribution and healthcare clients.

Board Profile: Jim Clayton >> Jim Clayton Anyone who knows Jim Clayton knows why his company, InfoWorks, Inc., was named "Number 1 Best Employer in Tennessee" in the May 2008 edition of Business TN magazine. That state-wide honor, along with a two-year run as one of Nashville Business Journal's "Best Places to Work," is due in a great degree to the company's commitment to employee satisfaction - and to the personal vision of the founder.
Since Jim believes that high employee morale leads to superior client satisfaction, he has balanced company growth with employee satisfaction in a controlled manner that has completely avoided layoffs and achieved profitability every year. Crowning this achievement, InfoWorks made company ownership available to all employees in 2006. "Since most talented people have several employment options, I'm determined to give my employees reasons to choose to work for me," explains Jim. "By providing the flexibility that everybody needs to balance work and family responsibilities, we form a partnership that empowers employees to succeed both on the job and at home."
Jim credits the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia Congregation with teaching him the importance of taking care of the whole person. "My mother was taught by the Dominican sisters at Notre Dame High School in Chattanooga, and she wanted me to have the same experience," recalls Jim. "I attended Holy Name School in Nashville, and years later I, in turn, entrusted the education of my own children to the sisters. During the years that his daughters attended the schools of The Dominican Campus, Jim served as a parent volunteer and on various committees of Overbrook School, St. Cecilia Academy, and Aquinas College. After Lisa (OS '80, SCA '84), Susan (OS '84, SCA '88), and Carole (OS '93, SCA '97, AC '00) graduated, Jim stayed on. He currently serves on the Aquinas College Board of Directors.
For the past five years, Jim has chaired the Board's Finance Committee. One of his major contributions to the work of the committee has been to simplify the presentation of complex financial data so that board members and administrators can make prudent decisions. Another major contribution, and one of which Jim is particularly proud, is the order he has brought to the technological infrastructure of The Dominican Campus. By standardizing hardware and software, streamlining processes, and creating a centralized, shared tech-services team, Jim enhanced the cost- and labor-efficiency of operations so that the Campus can better address the current and future technology needs of all three schools.
"Jim has a real gift for understanding the needs and identifying the potential of the people around him," says Sister Mary Peter, O.P., president of Aquinas College. "If his approach at InfoWorks resembles his dedication to Aquinas College and The Dominican Campus, then I am sure that Jim is as beloved by his employees as he is around here."
Prior to founding InfoWorks, Jim spent 32 years with IBM in Nashville in various management and marketing positions. At IBM, he managed several Global Services consulting practices over a three-state area. He also handled IBM's business partner programs and distribution and healthcare clients.
After serving as InfoWorks' president from its founding in 1997 until December 2008, Jim now serves as chairman of its Board of Directors. Jim is also very active in the Nashville community. In addition to his work on the Finance Committee at Aquinas College, Jim also chairs the Grants Committee of the Saint Thomas Health Services Fund Board of Directors and serves on the Board of Trustees of Watkins College of Art and Design. He previously served as president of the Board of Directors for Tennessee Special Olympics.
Although Jim is involved with so many important causes, he feels a strong loyalty to Aquinas College and to The Dominican Campus. He notes that the sisters have supported him every time that he and his family have faced a serious challenge and that their caring philosophy and actions inspire him. "Their hearts are always in the right place, and that is part of the atmosphere of the College, modeled by the faculty and staff," says Jim. "In a world that is not always such a good place, finding a place that encourages you to be involved in good things is a rare gift."
The same might be said of Jim Clayton.

"We keep our culture and desire to remain an independent Middle Tennessee-owned company in mind with each new hire," Clayton says. "We have a team goal of maintaining full employment which means we have never had a layoff. No layoffs means stability and continuity.
All InfoWorks employees prepare their own annual self-evaluations and review them with Clayton. "The focus of these reviews includes their business results, teamwork accomplishments, and skills needs," he says. "Advancement is measured by increasing skills and experiences so each person can take on more challenge and responsibility to increase their earnings. There is no hierarchy."
InfoWorks budgets about $4,000 per employee per year for continuing education, Clayton says. That education is aimed as much at increasing broad-based interpersonal skills - such as "negotiation or project management, and various technical proficiencies needed by our clients," Clayton says - as it is at increasing employees' individual knowledge bases in the consulting industry.
Eighteen of InfoWorks' 40 employees have worked with the company for more than five years. And just six employees have left the company during the past two years."Four of them joined a client firm at which they had been engaged," Clayton says.

...
Reached by VNC for comment on the appointment this afternoon, Clayton (at left) said he, himself, will remain chairman and a full-time employee of InfoWorks. Clayton stressed that with Heard's appointment, "we have a clearly stated succession plan for me. Clayton also expressed confidence in the firm's posture, despite the current economic climate. "While we realize the business climate is uncertain," he said, "customers are still making purchasing decisions, InfoWorks has a strong cash position, and 2008 revenues are substantially ahead of 2007's."
He said Heard's priority upon joining the company Dec. 1 will be business development and other "community-facing activities.
...
Clayton formed InfoWorks in 1997, after 32 years with IBM in Nashville, where his duties included managing several global-servies consulting practices in a three-state region. He also managed IBM's business-partner programs and healthcare practice.
Clayton had said at least three years ago that he'd be developing a succession plan to ensure continued leadership for the firm. InfoWorks became employee owned in 2005, after Clayton bought out Co-founder Beth Chase, who subsequently formed C3 Consulting.

Clayton said the count is now 42.
Clayton and Heard are veterans of the boards of numerous Nashville nonprofit organizations. Heard currently serves on the boards of both United Way of Middle Tennessee and the St. Thomas Health Services Foundation. Heard earned his bachelor's at Duke University. Clayton earned his bachelor's at Vanderbilt University School of Engineering.
Nashville Business Journal - December, 2007 InfoWorks about honesty, investment in its people >> InfoWorks team InfoWorks, Inc. nurtures a favorable employee environment by putting its people first - even when times are lean - and its paying off. "My philosophy is you treat employees as well as you treat a client, not just when it's profitable - but all the time," says Jim Clayton, president of InfoWorks, a business and technology consulting company with a staff of about 40. When times were tough for technology businesses in Nashville in 2002 and 2003, Clayton says he never laid anyone off. "When employees voted that they enjoyed working here, it's because we do have this culture of treating people with kindness and respect, but at the same time being honest with them," he
