Jim Neighbors, founder of Focusing Forward, served for 34 years in the Department of Defense.  

Soon after retiring from that role, Focusing Forward was born.

 Jim started with a vision of connecting commercial businesses to the Federal government, and within a short time, grew it into a successful consulting firm that now employs nearly 200 of the best and brightest minds in the industry, including retired senior executives, general and flag officers, and highly specialized government and business experts.

“Under Jim’s Leadership, Focusing Forward manages to do the nearly impossible in today’s world:  Take care of the client and the consultant. With FF it is always 1+1=3.”
