James E. Ellis

January 1, 1987

Chairman, President and CEO J. Ellis, Inc. Current: Chairman, President and CEO American International Apparel, Inc. – Dallas, Texas

James E. Ellis founded his company three years ago and it has enjoyed unprecedented growth, causing it in this relatively short period of time to become an important force in the dress and sports-wear industry. The business was recently named “Hottest in Dallas” by D Magazine. He began his career with retail positions at Foley’s in Houston and at Higbee’s in Cleveland. He then became a sales representative for Bobbie Brooks, Inc. After a move to Dallas he held executive positions at Jerell, Inc. for ten years. His creative abilities are not limited to art and design. He worked his way through high school, college and graduate school with his own dance band and music continues to be his number one hobby. He is active in Texas politics and various civic and educational projects. “A simple entrepreneurial profile … a mental toughness combined with a creative flair.”
