Jim White, PhD

Dr. Jim White


Dr. Jim White first found his entrepreneurial spirit at age five when he created his first business-collecting and selling Coke bottles to help support his family. From these humble beginnings, Jim went on to serve his country in Vietnam before entering the corporate world upon his return. Along the way, he would go from high school dropout to academic triumph-eventually earning a B.S. in Civil Engineering, an MBA, and a PhD in Psychology and Organizational Behavior.

Dr. White achieved international recognition as CEO of Blount World Trade Corporation, owner and Managing Director of ACEC Centrifugal Pumps NV, Belgium, and as Vice-President and Division Manager of Ingersoll Rand Equipment Corporation.

Throughout his career, he has bought, expanded, and sold 23 companies, operating in 44 countries. Jim has acquired failing businesses to revive and develop them into profitable enterprises using his business turnaround strategy. To date, Jim has generated more than $1.8 billion in revenue.

Jim is also the best-selling author of What’s My Purpose? A Journey of Personal and Professional Growth. The book, which has been lauded by such industry leaders as Steven M.R. Covey and Jack Canfield, seeks to change readers by helping them to identify key truths while breaking down the main barriers (the Five Masks) to fulfillment.
