He may seem like the proverbial “boy next door,” but make no mistake about it. Generac Grid Services CFO James Carr travels in rarified circles. A graduate of Oxford, James counts 26 British prime ministers, 50 Nobel Prize leaders, 120 Olympic medalists and dozens of heads of state as fellow alumni. It goes without saying that he’s wicked smart, and as someone whose background spans philosophy, politics and economics, he’s also very well-rounded, multi-talented and articulate. An entrepreneur and corporate development professional with 20+ years of experience in consulting, investment banking, and as CFO/COO for startups in the social impact and sustainability space, James considers Generac Grid Services the perfect fit for his unique background, skill set and creative problem-solving skills. Self-described as a competitive sports lover and devoted family man, James enjoys spending his free time skiing with his wife and two daughters. In fact, though modestly self-deprecating, James nevertheless claims to be surprisingly good at skiing (for a Brit, that is!).
