Jim Whitney, Board Member
Jim Whitney became involved with CONNECT through association with fellow members of Park City Sunrise Rotary Club, Ray Freer and Father Charles Robinson, to help with marketing for the 2016 May Mental Health Awareness month. Jim found that need for awareness of brain health issues, and the stories of the people he met at the May events to be so compelling he felt he “had” to stay involved with this emerging group. Jim studied Advertising Design at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, before moving to New York City seeking fame and fortune on Madison Avenue. After seven years working in big New York agencies, Jim and his new wife, Robin, picked up and relocated to Los Angeles, where they spent 8 years working in small and virtual ad agencies. Jim and Robin moved to Park City, Utah, in 1995, joining forces to form Whitney Advertising and raising their two daughters, Grace and Claire. Jim is a past President of the Park City Sunrise Rotary Club, loves skiing, travel, the Sundance Film Festival and spending time at his family cabin in Big Cottonwood Canyon.
