Jim Belosic

CEO/Overlord, ShortStack.com   |  

He’s been referred to as Jimmy, Jim-bo and Tasty-cakes but around here we know him as the head honcho, chief master, overlord, and CEO of this place we call work. Jim spends his day doing CEO stuff - whatever that is - and spends his nights un-friending annoying people on Facebook, and hanging out with his family. He’s obsessed with customer service and probably gives away way too much free stuff, but it’s not uncommon for a support ticket to be answered by Jim himself, just because he wants to. If he wasn’t an entrepreneur he would want to be a king size candy bar in a Halloween bag, you know the kind that is awesome when you find it but then it makes you sick because you ate too much. When we asked him how he felt about pancakes he was speechless, we think he’s still coming to terms with the fact that he’s made more pancakes than any man should ever have to.
