About our Founder
Acumen Consulting Group, Inc. (ACG) was founded by Jim Kimbel in early 2012. Mr. Kimbel is a strategic investor and former Finance & Business Development executive with large, global companies and start-up initiatives. Because of his industrial roots, Mr. Kimbel is as comfortable improving processes in a factory as he is presenting in a boardroom.
His career, which started on the production floor of a Chrysler plant when he was 18 years-old, progressed rapidly. During a 13 year career with General Motors, Mr. Kimbel created and led the strategic Revenue Management team in North America, executed over $6 billion in M&A, divestiture and licensing deals, served as the CFO for an $800M business unit, and played a key role on the restructuring team responsible for GM’s strategy for emergence from bankruptcy.
Immediately prior to founding ACG, Mr. Kimbel served as Director of Manufacturing Finance and Business Development for Fisker Automotive. He led strategic and financial support for Fisker’s global vehicle manufacturing and logistics operations, the largest operating unit in the company. Mr. Kimbel was also responsible for building strategic partnerships, minimizing corporate working capital, and managing labor and government relations for Fisker’s manufacturing operations.
Mr. Kimbel founded ACG after watching many brilliant entrepreneurs struggle to find help from experienced business leaders who can advise and execute. From its first day of operation, ACG has committed to help clients by providing guidance and tackling challenges to achieve the right business results.
