With a matter of fact, no nonsense approach, James T. Hillman is quick to gain his customers’ trust — and keep it. His ability to maintain clear lines of communication throughout a project’s lifetime helps guide his customers easily through each stage and if an unlikely issue does arise, his calm, approachable nature helps both parties come to a quick, agreeable solution.
James began his career as a service manager at a large IT company, but both his management team and he quickly realized that his true strength lay in his strong leadership and relationship building skills. So, he began studying and taking courses on project management until he rose to the project manager rank — a title he’s now held for the last eight years with over 10,000 documented project management hours.
Working at RFgen is like working with his “family,” James describes, because of its welcoming, personal environment and approachable open-door policy. When he’s not working, he loves spending time outdoors hunting, camping and trap shooting with his wife and daughter. Before making his transition into tech and project management, James served as a police officer, participating in several presidential details under former President Clinton.
James holds beginning, intermediate and advanced project management certifications and the Project Management Training Institute PMP Certificate. He also has the California Basic P.O.S.T Certification, is a PMI member, and is currently studying to take the PMP exam.
“I love to work with people, establish rapport, build trust and establish long-term relationships with customers. Seeing a project through to a successful completion regardless of the inevitable risk and challenges is a very fulfilling feeling of accomplishment.”
