As Chairman of the Board –Jim will take more of a “bird’s eye” view of the “day to day” operations at Skyward - leaving the attention to detail to Cliff and Scott.
Succeeding Jim as CEO will be current President of Skyward - Cliff King. Cliff joined Jim in 1981 and has provided many skills to Skyward. He started by assisting Jim with programming. He soon found himself also working in customer service. Not long after - he was called upon to assist in sales and marketing at Skyward. Cliff has ”done it all” at Skyward over the past 26+ years. This is what makes him such a natural selection for Jim to appoint him as Skyward's next CEO.
Succeeding Cliff as President is Scott Glinski. Scott has been with Skyward since 1987. Scott’s 20+ years of experience at Skyward have served him well in preparation for the presidency at Skyward.
