Business Development Relationship Specialist

John Mims is a relationship specialist in the Business Development Department at 1st Global, where he serves as the administrator of Salesforce, an innovative provider of customer relationship management software, and is responsible for the database management of firm and advisor prospects. 

He began his career at 1st Global in 2011 and previously worked as the business development marketing director. As a relationship specialist, he finds value in being able to develop the best possible prospect database in order to find and help CPAs offer wealth management services to their clients.

John received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in graphic design from Henderson State University and was eventually drawn to the idea of reaching the CPA market by educating its individuals about wealth management and why it’s the best resource for their clients. Prior to 1st Global, he gained valuable experience in his field as a marketing communications manager at Thomson Reuters and as a multimedia director at Raytheon Training Systems. He enjoys that his current role allows him to conduct the necessary research on CPA firms to help in market determinations and to learn more about the various firms during what he calls a “fascinating” process.
