President / COO

 James D. McNair

James, TPC’s COO, is responsible for managing our day-to-day operations.  He has over twenty years of dynamic experience in the multi-channel marketing industry.


He is the former CEO of The Garlinghouse Company, a leading marketer of stock house plans and related media products. In his role as CEO, he spearheaded the company's transformation from a traditional catalog-oriented publisher into a multi-channel marketer with a leading presence on the Internet as well as in traditional retailers. Garlinghouse's dramatic growth under his leadership led to its successful sale to a strategic buyer.


James has also served an executive management consultant to several consumer Internet companies and leading niche content providers. His duties included areas as diverse as new business growth, product development, and operations restructuring. Earlier in his career, James held managerial positions within the Xerox Corporation and Donnelley Marketing Information Services.
