Jim Kerlin

Beyond Vision welcomed Mr. James Kerlin to the position of President/CEO on May 14, 2007.  Jim has a strong manufacturing, business and engineering background including consulting and ownership of his own business.  He is inventor or co-inventor of twelve patents, with several additional pending.  His knowledge of the nonprofit field comes from his 22 years of participation in the business side of the Lutheran Church as a Deacon and an Elder, as well as his involvement on the board of the Make-a-Wish Foundation in Augusta, Georgia.  He has participated as a member of the Business Networking International and Rotary International organizations.

Since joining Beyond Vision, Jim has facilitated significant improvements in the organization – some of them measurable and some of them immeasurable.  While it’s certainly easy to see the positive change in revenue growth since Jim’s arrival, what you don’t see is the change in culture he brought with as well.  Jim’s open door policy and desire to converse daily with all employees has cultivated a team atmosphere where employees strive to help one another succeed.
