James Foxall

James is a recognized leader in the world of business automation, team building, leadership, and rock ‘n’ roll trivia. He prides himself on creating genuine and lasting relationships with our customers and our Tigers. With more than 30 years’ experience in commercial software development, a BS in Management Information Systems, a Masters of Business Administration, and more than a dozen books on technology written (when did he have time for those?) — well, it’s easy to see why our Tiger-in-Chief is a speaker in high demand. He’s given keynote speeches underwater, written rock songs, solved a Rubix cube in 52 seconds, and he even has a Tigerpaw tattoo (but he won’t tell us where it is). A devoted contributor and collaborator, James is a member of the CompTIA Technology Lifecycle Services Executive Council and Entrepreneurs’ Organization. If not in his office filled with TARDIS (TARDISes?), lava lamps, and assorted Sci-Fi and Tigerpaw memorabilia, James can be found with a guitar in his hands or discussing the newest video games with the team. Passionate about company culture and mentorship, James is just as likely to be working on business strategy and vision as he is wearing a Pink Floyd t-shirt and moderating a Star Wars debate in the bullpen.
