Jim Hoogewind

Sales Executive

Jim attracts potential clients, uncovers business problems, understands users, and proposes thoughtful solutions as a Sales Executive at Kanopi Studios. He helps a variety of Kanopi clients find value and define what “good” means for their website projects. Armed with over 15 years of experience in strategy and business development, Jim works best when he’s able to tap into his innate curiosity. He’s also thrilled if he’s able to meet and connect with new people daily. Jim’s passion and unique take on sales manifest in the qualified leads he secures, and he happily shares his sales expertise with others, as revealed in a recent podcast on the topic.

When Jim isn’t helping clients explore the “what” and “why” and “how” that underpins an impactful web presence, you’ll most likely find him spending time with his family, hiking, and volunteering at a men’s warming shelter.


Building rapport and trust with new prospects, clients, and team members. Asking questions that lead to more fruitful discussions.
