Jim Misener is the Principal and President of 50,000feet, an independent global brand consultancy and creative agency that develops integrated experiences for the world’s most respected brands. One doesn’t necessarily associate poetry with the day-to-day business of a thriving agency, but Jim has found great success being an exception to the rule. Most early mornings you can find him deep in thought about clients’ businesses, and by midday he’s making rounds with tasks in hand. Jim received a B.A. with highest honors from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, studied at Cite Universite in Paris, completed the AIGA Program for Creative Leaders at Yale and the Executive Program at the University of Chicago Management Institute.
