About Jim Panagas

Jim Panagas is a marketing and communications expert who works with software and technology companies to out-market competitors and attain a higher level of visibility and success.


This “group selfie” was taken at the conclusion of a panel discussion that Jim Panagas moderated for AMA Boston and PRSA Boston. The event took place in March 2019 and focused on the changing relationship between CMO’s and digital marketing agencies.

An accomplished marketer, writer, strategist, and media spokesperson, he has appeared on camera (watch his interview on the CMS-Connected webTV show), on webcasts and podcasts, and his articles have appeared in publications such as CMS-Connected, CMSWire, EContent, Loyalty360, and Website Magazine.

Jim has been working at the VP / Director level for 15 years. His most recent assignment was Director of PR & Analyst Relations for Kentico Software, a Content Management Systems (CMS) provider based in central Europe. He helped propel Kentico onto the global stage by securing their inclusion in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Web Content Management – an annual, highly valued analyst report – for the very first time.

Watch Jim’s 3-minute video reel on YouTube. It shows the impact of Jim’s work on three companies in particular: Kentico Software, Automatic Data Processing, and Taxware–A First Data Company.

Prior to that, he served as VP of Marketing for a $1B business unit of Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (ADP), where he developed breakthrough marketing strategies to accelerate the demand for outsourced business services.

In the early 2000’s, Jim was Vice President of Marketing for Taxware–A First Data Company, a $20M business that produced a bolt-on sales tax calculation engine for leading ERP platforms including SAP and Oracle. There, he was the architect of a marketing re-launch that put them on a march towards industry leadership and paved the way for acquisition by ADP.

I worked with Jim Panagas at two different companies and found him to be a hugely energetic, highly focused marketing executive who has a knack for increasing product visibility and demand. He takes his role seriously, understands the big picture, and consistently shows the drive to execute marketing plans. I consider him a great asset to any well-run organization.
