Jim Baran


Jim is a veteran manufacturing executive recruiter whose hiring and experience ranges from Global Fortune 500 to mid-market private equity. Jim has 30 years recruitment experience in Public, Private, and Private Equity Companies and has placed over 650 lean-savvy manufacturing executives on four continents. Jim’s passion is rebuilding and transforming U.S. manufacturing companies. He is an avid fly fisherman and has recently enjoyed trips on the San Juan River in New Mexico, Boulder, Colorado and Nova Scotia. Everyone in the office has enjoyed his many interesting stories of growing up in Detroit (let’s just say there are some strange clowns involved). Jim enjoys spending his Sunday’s being either delighted or tormented by the Carolina Panthers but remembers much too well being a Detroit Lions fan. Voted most likely to be banned from the “Remembering Detroit” fan page.
