Christian James – 2017 20 Under 40 Honoree


Christian James

Age: 40

Employer:  Xcentric

Title: COO

City/State:  Bozeman/MT

Beyond being part of an amazing Team at Xcentric, what stands out in my mind as one of our top accomplishments is the Cloud Computing service we’ve built over the last 15 years.  It’s fun to sit back and consider the countless accounting industry best practices that we employ, simply because of our laser focus on the Accounting Industry.  I can  whole-heartedly say that the most meaningful things we’ve done have nothing to do with our intelligence or creativity but rather the willingness to listen to our clients’ desires.  While we’re far from perfect, I consider it a significant highlight of my career to have maintained the pursuit of meeting the direct needs of Accounting firms.


While I’m passionate about several ministries and organizations, my primary pursuit outside of work is my family.  I have a wonderful wife and four young daughters.  We spend a great deal of time together camping, hiking and riding bikes.  It seems as if this season of life will pass by quickly, so I’m hoping to make the most of it.


Favorite influencer(s) (authors, bloggers, mentors, speakers, etc.)

I’m a big fan of Randy Newberg.  He’s an ex-CPA turned hunting professional.  He lives in my same town and is a super nice guy.  If you’re into hunting and the outdoors at all, you should check him out.
