James Conlow was born into a four generation California real estate development family and has worked with several large and small companies to improve their bottom line. Mr. Conlow began his hands-on training in the construction field in his early teens and completed his apprenticeship as a finish carpenter during his college years by working on residential and commercial projects. Mr. Conlow attended first Diablo Valley College and then the University of California at Berkeley. Thereafter he was recruited to Parsons, at the time the largest Construction Company in the World. At Parsons Jim gained practical management training and experience on a diversity of major projects, including oil refineries and water projects. He also learned engineering design, estimating, scheduling, and field supervision. In the early 1980s Jim moved to Hoffman, a major west coast residential and commercial builder-developer, and served as its Vice-President of Marketing. In this position Mr. Conlow was responsible for acquiring new customers and moving all aspects of both residential and commercial projects to completion.
After three years at Hoffman, Mr. Conlow left to start his own company, Conlow Construction. At Conlow, Jim developed and completed projects ranging from wind energy farms and other power generation to commercial and residential projects. In 1985 Conlow Construction was acquired by CSS and Mr. Conlow became the Executive Vice President and Chief Operations Officer at CSS. There Jim had operational responsibility for several hundred million dollars in projects that included commercial, manufacturing, retail, multi-family residential, and healthcare properties, with multiple concurrent projects. In this capacity Jim worked directly with each company’s management team to align overall strategy with their portfolio of projects.
In 2001 Mr. Conlow created a new company Cortexion and designed and created a multidimensional software based invention that revolutionizes lean production. The strategy of this system represented a major improvement in project management programming and lean execution of projects. The strategy integrated a real time web-based technology combined with practical and lean production methodologies. Jim applied for patents on this product set and then started Cortexion Inc. At Cortexion, Mr. Conlow completed and expanded the application platform of this product array such that the company now provides a full range of project management and cost control services, all geared to help the developer achieve total mission success at the lowest levels of cost and risk.
Today Jim serves as an expert in green energy projects that provide energy efficiency and responsible energy production.
