Jim Sandstrom joined the Centrisys/CNP team in 2020 after a 43-year career of successfully guiding his family’s $30MM/150 employee manufacturing company and subsequently selling it in early 2019.
Originally a practicing accountant, Sandstrom was drafted by his father to join the family business along with his eight brothers and sisters as the CEO. He is well adept at finance, strategic planning, technical operations, sales, marketing and building high-performance teams. A servant leader who is "others-focused” and genuinely cares about his people, Sandstrom puts the welfare of those he leads first.
He is looking forward to continuing to develop the strong family values that Michael Kopper, Centrisys/CNP Founder, has worked so hard to create. Sandstrom realizes that he has big shoes to fill of the retired COO, but with the help of his teammates, he will continue the work of his predecessor and help Centrisys/CNP continue its long history of success.
