Les Olson Company announces the retirement of Jim Olson. We express our deep appreciation to Jim for his extraordinary leadership as Chairman of the Board and CEO of Les Olson Company. During his more than 47 years with the company his influence and leadership has helped steer Les Olson Company through a changing business environment as technology continues to shape how people communicate and transact business. Jim has a great ability to influence change at the appropriate time, while also remaining true to the same level of honesty and integrity the business was founded on 60 years ago. His commitment and dedication to making people feel important is one of Jim’s many trademarks.
Jim Olson shares many of the same qualities of leadership which his parents, Les and Reva did. Jim has whole-heartedly continued their legacy and passion for giving back to our community in various charitable services and donations. Evidence of his passion for service and generosity is Jim’s service to our country in the United States Army, stationed in Korea during the Vietnam War. Jim maintains a deep level of patriotism today, and we are grateful for his service.
