JIM HIGDON, ’88
VVS Foundation Board
A 1988 graduate of VVS, Jim joined the Board of Trustees in 2009 through 2013, and later became a Foundation Board member in 2016. Jim is currently the co-founder and Senior Vice President of Information Strategy for Vendor Direct Solutions, a company that was formed in 2007 to provide technical and staffing solutions for law firms. He has over 15 years experience leveraging technology within information governance programs based on the concept that a sophisticated and successful information governance program should be built on a framework that emphasizes access, flexibility and usability.
Jim believes he found VVS at the lowest point in his life but left full of confidence and a desire to know the world better; and that VVS saved his life. While on a VVS Field Trip, Jim lived with a Mexican family and was inspired to become a fluent Spanish speaker and translator in South America. He met his husband, who is getting ready to practice medicine in the US, in Brazil in 2009. They now both live in North Hollywood enjoying sustainable gardening, animals and the outdoors.
