Jim Zezza

Managing Director, Consultant

Jim is a Managing and Founding Partner of Side Tilt, LLC with over 25 years of experience in talent management and sales and operations leadership. He is passionate about creating efficient and effective teams.  Jim developed his enthusiasm for helping leaders and teams succeed while managing analysts at Capital One Financial. This led him to pursue roles in organizational development and human resources where he could increase his positive impact and influence across the enterprise. 


Jim’s career has encompassed roles such as Organizational Development Consultant, Operations Leader, HR Manager, Statistical Analysis Consultant, Project and Process Manager, and Learning Development Manager. Jim has developed succession plans with leaders to help them define and differentiate their development strategy.  He has also formed several new teams to achieve changing company goals. In his most recent role, as a Sr. VP at Truist Bank, he served as a Training and Development Strategy Manager in Wealth Management, consulting with business leaders, managing large-scale training programs, and coordinating transformational change efforts with their recent company merger. 


Jim is pathologically curious and considers any new subject an area he just hasn’t discovered yet. In the words of one of his clients, “Jim always challenges us to think in a new way. He asks ‘why’ more than anyone I know to help our team solve our problems.”  Jim combines a logical approach with his positive energy to help clients achieve better outcomes. 

Jim is married to his business partner and best friend, Karin (see her Elements bio as well) and has three children (one left in their “nest”). He enjoys getting outside, staying active, and competing in just about any activity with friends and family. Jim still plays volleyball and tennis regularly and skis when he visits family in Vermont.
