Mendota Heights, MN (PRWEB) July 16, 2006
City Capital Corporation (OTC: CCCN) today announced that board members had nominated and approved the addition of Phillip B. St. James to serve as a Director. Mr. James has accepted the appointment, and brings significant management and logistics experience to assist City Capital in its management of real estate developments.
Although his early training was in computer science (BS, 1984, DeVry Institute of Technology), Phillip James career path dramatically changed in 1998 when he received his Masters in Business Management (Webster). Mr. James had had great success and won numerous awards nationally and internationally in computer and IT management, but his heart had always been in missions and social programs.
In 1998, he began working first as Community Affairs Representative, later as Vice President Of Domestic Programs, for Heart-To-Heart International in Kansas City, MO. Here he actively identified, recruited and facilitated partnerships with community-minded organizations. He established budgets, identified prospective funding sources and raised financial support. Working with representatives of Tanzania, Africa (Arusha, Africa was Kansas City’s “Sister City”) and mainland China, he created systems to assess needs and procure products, establish logistics, monitor effectiveness and on-going need.
In 2000 he assumed management duties over U.S. Corporate Giving and Philanthropy for sanofi-aventis, Europe’s largest (and the world's third largest) pharmaceutical company. Among other duties he has redefined the company’s involvement in community initiatives. These include educational programs, United Way, Matching Gifts and Volunteer Programs as well as community health initiatives for the underserved and uninsured. Mr. St. James also manages the budget process and tracking of sanofi-aventis Foundation and departmental funds, while establishing a close relationship with accounts payable and finance. He brings an outstanding perception of the management and logistic requirements of complex operations in an international marketplace. Mr. St. James also brings a keen understanding of how to meet the needs of individuals and communities in a cost-effective way, with long-lasting results.
