James Bell

Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing

I’ve been working in the signage industry for nearly 25 years and over that time I’ve been involved in projects across every market within our industry. Managing programs and conversions, working with designers, general contractors, construction teams and project management firms—I’ve been fortunate to gain firsthand experience across the full range of what it takes to develop and execute successful branding and conversion programs.

My path to becoming Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing started about 25 years ago, when I took a temporary administrative position on a restaurant sign conversion project. At that time, I was attending the University of Tennessee studying marketing and advertising. My education provided me a unique appreciation and insight into the power of effective branding—strengths that I brought to our recent rebrand here at AGI.

I’m a team builder. Bringing together a multitude of talented people and providing them with the support and tools they need to be successful is one of my favorite parts of the job.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and son and traveling to new places with them. We love tennis and are always interested in experiencing new things.
