Jim Jarrell is the Chief Marketing & Business Development Officer for the law firm of Norris McLaughlin, based in Bridgewater, NJ, where he helps the firm's attorneys drive revenue by building structure and accountability into their business planning and leading a team of marketing and business development support professionals to help the attorneys execute on those plans. He has enjoyed a career spanning more than two decades leading the strategic marketing and business development programs for professional services firms. Stints in leadership roles at two of the nation’s largest law firms and management roles at a handful of smaller regional firms and boutiques have helped shape Jim’s national reputation as a leader in the field. When he is not strategizing marketing plans or coaching attorneys on business development activities, Jim loves to spend his time enjoying a multitude of cultural and performing arts events, both locally in the New Jersey area, and in New York City. He earned his B.M. for Musical Theatre from Baldwin-Wallace University, which led to a modest career as a professional actor/singer in New York and regionally around the country. Though he has transitioned his career to the corporate world, Jim’s heart still lives on the stage, where you may occasionally find him performing or directing in community and regional theatre productions in New Jersey.
