Jim Atkinson


“Sufficiently advanced advertising is indistinguishable from magic.”

With more than 35 years in the asset management industry and the founder of Orbis Marketing, Jim applies his experience to the strategic challenges faced by clients trying to grow their business. Jim loves pouring over results data with an eye to improving results and believes targeting and media placements is part art and part science…particularly if you are able to see the art in an Excel spreadsheet.
