Jim Beattie - Principal
Jim Beattie is a seasoned Technology Executive with more than 40 years in the field. He has held various positions of leadership in both public and privately held corporations. In his career choices he has consistently chosen situations in which Technology was the key driver for revenue and business success and the mission of the Technology Organization was the development, launch and support of complex products. He has been the driver of transformation at mature companies, and has as well held key leadership roles at startups, where investment success was predicated on the achievement of product and technology milestones. Throughout his career he has been on the cutting edge of new technology adoption. Mr. Beattie started his career while still in college joining IBM, where he was trained as a mainframe specialist. Finishing college, he chose to remain with IBM in Operations and eventually in Mainframe Sales, where he concluded his ten year career. He was a catalyst in the migration of Savin Business Machines to DEC and Data General midsize computers. He was an early proponent of personal computing at both Savin and Pitney Bowes. In 1984, He was recruited by a joint venture of IBM, Sears, and CBS, as they collaborated to establish Prodigy as a vehicle to transform consumer access to timely powerful information. Mr. Beattie managed the development of newsroom technologies, through the automatic delivery of sports, stock information and weather in this early movement toward what we know now as the World Wide Web. At Infonautics, Mr. Beattie was the technology leader in a passionate startup aimed at improving literacy and access to digital information and published content in inner city schools. He was the technology driver for the Homework Helper and Electric Library. These products launched in 1996, were hosted exclusively by Infonautics but delivered through Prodigy and the Internet. In doing so, he pioneered technologies that have now become cutting edge as Cloud Based or Services Oriented and gained experience in 24/7 computer and system operations. As Chief Technology Officer at CCC Information Services, he led a complete transformation of Technology, Organization and Product. In an 11 year period as CTO, Mr. Beattie led the adoption of Java and web technology as the key product strategy for CCC, and in doing so replaced nearly every product with new and more powerful versions, and in doing so expanded the product inventory from 4 to more than 15. The last initiative deployed Microsoft Technologies as a platform for integrating Repair Shop business and information processes with those of Corporate Insurers, improving information flow, accuracy, oversight, and cost on both sides of this vital partnership. All of CCC's products are hosted solutions with aggressive goals for performance and stability: Cloud Computing come of age. Each of Mr. Beattie's engagements have been characterized by an unwavering commitment to methodology, cost performance and organization development. In addition, he has been an articulate liaison between the business and technology, ensuring that business goals are surpassed and expectations met. As an example, at CCC Mr. Beattie reduced cost and improved product delivery enabling the company to grow revenue and improve valuation significantly over more than a decade of high profitability. Mr. Beattie lives in Lake Barrington, Illinois with Susan, his wife of 35 years and nearby his 3 children ages 33, 28 and 23 and his newly minted grandson. He is an avid golfer, a committed bicycle enthusiast and skier. Mr. Beattie has been on the Board of Governors of Lumity, a Chicago landmark non-profit of almost 30 years, which provides technology and financial accounting support to other non-profits. In April, 2011, Mr. Beattie assumed Chairmanship of the Board consisting of 24 leaders in Technology, Marketing and Finance.
