Los Angeles, California July 11, 2014 / - FORTIUM PARTNERS, the world’s fastest growing provider of top technology leaders and Interim CIO/CTO services, is pleased to announce the addition of Jim Robins as a Partner in its Western U.S. region. 

With a career that spans more than 40 years, Robins has served as an advisor to countless large and mid-sized global IT organizations. A past Managing Partner with Tatum, LLC, a U.S. finance and technology advisory firm that was once dominant early in the last decade, Jim Robins established a respected position as an expert in all aspects of process manufacturing, supply chain, warehousing, order fulfillment, Internet B2C sites, Call Centers, and logistics. He has led a number of large-scale global IT organizations in North America, Europe and Asia. Prior to Tatum, Robins served as a Divisional CIO for Amway Corporation, living in Munich for 2½ years and Tokyo for 5, supporting multiple countries from each location.

Tim McCracken, Chairman and CEO of the Firm comments: "Jim's career as an IT leader at Amway has helped to develop a polished and professional no-nonsense management style that could only result from years in the trenches of a high-paced multi-level marketing business. An IT organization with such complexity breeds the excellence in leadership that Jim consistently displays with clients."

Jim Robins comments: "Fortium Partners affords me the opportunity to apply what I’ve learned from the successes and near-misses over my career to help IT organizations in distress. Fortium's clients aren't looking to "tweak" their performance, but rather view technology as mission-critical to their very existence. I'm excited to work with such visionary clients to align their technology capabilities in support of breakthrough performance and efficiency, and I'm proud to become part of a firm with such luminary IT professionals.”

Robins received his BSC in Computer Science at the University of Western Ontario, in London, Canada.
