Jim Nall’s Classification Talk Each new member to our club gives a "classification talk" to tell other members something about his or her life and work. When Jim joined Lockheed in California in the mid 1960’s, they saw his potential from the start. They would take him under their wings, offer to pay for his college, and he would begin a journey that would help him develop the skills needed to launch his company many years later. Jim and his family transferred to Bangor in 1992 and 2 years later founded Paladin Data Systems. Their first customer, a little company named Starbucks, would help get Paladin on the map and develop a customer base that includes many F500 and military jurisdictions. Lest he get carried away with all his success, his wife of 35 years keeps him humble. An example? After a heady shareholder meeting, where Jim shined and received many accolades, his wife leaned over later and whispered, “You talk too much”. Welcome back to Poulsbo Rotary Jim!
