According to Jim Forbes, it’s key for a top executive to be adept as a servant leader with both internal and external constituents. “It starts with being a collaborative leader in support of the company’s team, by putting employees first to help them grow individually through their commitment and engagement,” said Forbes. “By taking care of your people, they will in turn take care of your customers and thus increase the organization’s value.”

Forbes has been instrumental in increasing the value of Vizzia Technologies where he serves as the chief strategy officer.

Vizzia Technologies is a leading software and managed service provider of real-time location systems for healthcare. Vizzia serves several of the largest hospitals and health systems in America and has the privilege of collaborating with clinicians and technologists at prominent healthcare organizations across Georgia.

When Forbes initially joined the board at Vizzia Technologies to advise on the corporate strategy, he saw firsthand the company’s unique value prop as a managed service provider and its potential to scale.

In his role at Vizzia, Forbes directs corporate development, strategic alliances and industry marketing. He created and implemented several strategic initiatives to further position the company to scale and was instrumental in achieving the firm’s System and Organization Controls 2 Type II compliance certification, leading Vizzia to become the first real-time location systems provider in the healthcare industry to achieve the highest audited criteria for security and data protection.

Forbes’ contributions have led Vizzia Technologies to receive the 2023 North American Company of the Year award in the RTLS Industry while being listed on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies in America. The firm was also named to the Healthcare Technology Report’s list of the Power 500 Healthcare Technology Companies of 2023. Personally, Forbes was the recipient of the 2023 Golden Helix Award from the Center of Global Health Innovation in recognition of his contributions to Georgia’s life sciences community.

As a leader, Forbes said that his superpower is to see around corners. “I am able to connect the dots on emerging industry trends and know how to monetize opportunities,” he said. “This enables me to walk technology from the circuit board into the boardroom.”

Forbes also believes that being in service to others extends externally to the community as well. “Employees and customers alike seek to align themselves with organizations that share common values,” he said. “Nonprofits, academia and industry associations are relevant areas for community engagement.”
