Jim is a serial entrepreneur with over 30 years of collective business experience. Having held many diverse positions in Sales, Marketing, General Management, and Executive Leadership Roles, Jim was most recently a Co-founder of Curtis-Straus LLC, a conformity assessment testing laboratory specializing in the ITE, telecom, medical, test & measurement markets, and wireless markets. He recruited key co-founders and served as both CEO and Director of Sales/Marketing. He grew the business for 10 years, before selling it to the large French conglomerate Bureau Veritas. Jim’s aptitude for achievement in developing high growth in startup companies is well illustrated in having attained the awards of The Entrepreneur Hot 100 Company in 1998 & 1999, and INC 500 Fastest Growing Companies award in 2001.

Jim is also an avid athlete, having recently completed several Ironman Triathlons, including the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii. It was during his long training rides on the bike when he noticed the prevalent & disturbing behavior of Distracted Driving, making his leadership role of Kyrus both a professional pursuit and a personal mission to make our roads safer for all. Kyrus Mobile has now developed and deployed a next generation Bluetooth technology device to prevent distracted driving for both Android and iOS devices. Jim has negotiated strategic partnerships with major telecom companies in the USA, and Kyrus is now shipping product for first orders with great market adoption.
