Hello: My name is Jim Kharouf. I serve as president and editor-in-chief of a media firm called John J. Lothian & Co., based in Chicago. We focus on financial markets, such as futures, options and stocks. I travel periodically to conferences in the U.S. and Europe.
I enjoy the opportunity to meet new people, hear their stories and tell them mine. Traveling brings people closer together and I enjoy that aspect.
As a guest, I'm about as low maintenance as you can get. I'm often out at meetings or seeing the city I'm in. Give me a comfortable bed and a shower and I'm fine.
