Jim Brouwer, Founder and CEO

Jim founded and managed CollegeView as multi-media technology was emerging. This interactive application is credited with reinventing the college directory when Peterson’s and Barron’s dominated the business. At that time, College Board’s college database was already in hundreds of high schools and ACT had a similar project well underway. Financed by the Daily Mail & General Trust (London), CollegeView beat out all of these market heavyweights by focusing its efforts on a superior solution for all users. The Daily Mail used CollegeView as the cornerstone on which to build its billion dollar DMG Interactive publishing empire.

As Sales Training & Sales Manager for the largest territory of Convergent Technologies’ Dataline Division, Jim produced both top sales and top sales people. Having managed a 100 employee multi-million dollar retail business, Jim has a solid understanding of the local merchant’s perspective on advertising.
