James “Jim” Lee, LPC is the executive editor and cofounder of LP Magazine. Now in its fourteenth year, the magazine is viewed as the premier news and educational publication for the loss prevention professional. Published in print bi-monthly, the magazine also is available in digital format with supplemental content published on its website, weekly e-newsletters, podcasts, EyeOnLP videos, and via social media networks. Lee authors the Parting Words column in each issue of the magazine, which is one of the magazine’s most well-read articles. The magazine was also the originator and key sponsor of the loss prevention industry’s only certification program that led to the creation of The Loss Prevention Foundation and development of the LPQ (qualified) and LP C (certified) designations. Lee is a founding and current member of the Foundation board of directors serving on its executive committee. Lee has over thirty years of practical experience as a retail security and loss prevention executive, including senior positions with Montgomery Ward, The Broadway, Lazarus, and Marshall’s. In addition, he is the founder of Contact, Inc., a consulting and training company that supports retailers with internal awareness programs, and LPjobs.com, the largest e-recruiting platform for LP professionals. Over the years, he has mentored numerous retail professionals providing career counseling and organizational advice to LP executives at both small and large retailers. He has also been sought after by solutions providers seeking his insights into products and services aimed at the loss prevention industry. In 2010 Lee was inducted into the National Retail Federation’s Ring of Excellence, recognizing him for his pioneering contributions to the loss prevention industry. Lee is a graduate of Indiana University with a degree in forensic studies and sociology. He was a four-year member of the IU baseball team, winning All Big Ten honors in 1967. When he is not on an airplane meeting with LP executives around the country, Lee splits his time between Charlotte, NC, and Hilton Head Island, SC.
