Jim Cline graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting and Taxation from the University of Houston in 1989.  His first job was at Arthur Andersen where he worked in the Tax and Real Estate Appraisal departments.  After seven years with Arthur Andersen, Mr. Cline became the Manager of Revenue Services at Service Corporation International (SCI), the largest funeral home and cemetery consolidator in North America.  Currently, he is the Director of Ad Hoc Reporting and Information Support at SCI. In 2005, Jim started developing a course that would train accountants in his group in Microsoft Excel.  He realized that even recent college graduates didn’t possess the Excel skills needed to work in his group.  His first book (Excel 2003) took three-and-a-half years to complete.  After immense success with the first book, he decided to expand his curriculum to include Microsoft Access, which took an additional two years to complete.  In 2007, he started selling his courses online under the name of ClineSys, and in 2011 he changed the name of his courses to be ExcelCEO (which stands for Chief Excel Officer). Since the inception, Jim Cline and his ExcelCEO courses have trained thousands of accountants, financiers, and business professionals in how to work with Excel and Access in a business environment with amazing results. Jim is married with five children and seven grandchildren. Jim continues to conduct seminars, conferences, and CPE webinars He is a Boy Scout leader, a part-time web developer, owns a small cattle ranch outside of Houston, and speaks three languages (four if you count Texan).
