Jim Hollingshead was appointed president of ResMed’s sleep business in July 2017. He previously served as president of the company’s Americas region, beginning in March 2013. He joined the company in 2010 as vice president of Strategy and Business Development. In 2011, his role was expanded to include the leadership of ResMed’s Ventures and Initiatives unit, responsible for growing early-stage businesses.
Jim has helped create and execute ResMed’s strategy to transform its business – and the sleep therapy industry – by introducing built-in communications on all of its medical devices, coupled with cloud-based business process automation applications that helps customers grow revenues while also cutting costs. Under Jim’s leadership in the Americas region, ResMed launched the Air10™ Series of cloud-connected CPAP machines, which led to rapid share gains and unprecedented adoption of its SaaS platforms. As a result, ResMed is the world’s leading company in remote patient monitoring with an expanding portfolio of device- and SaaS-based offerings for both patients and healthcare providers.
Before joining ResMed, Jim spent 18 years in strategy consulting, where he worked with senior executives across a wide range of industries, mainly biotech, high tech and telecommunications. From 2008 to 2010, he was a senior partner in the Strategy and Life Sciences practices at Deloitte Consulting, based in San Francisco.
Before that, Jim was West Coast managing partner for Monitor Group, a leading global strategy consulting firm, working in various offices around the world and successfully launching and running three different practices, including a London-based pan-European marketing strategy practice.
Jim currently sits on the Board of SleepScore Labs, a joint venture between ResMed, Pegasus Capital and Oz Media, aimed at creating a consumer marketplace for scientifically validated sleep solutions like SleepScore, the world’s first non-contact sleep tracking mobile app.
Jim holds a Bachelor of Arts in history and international relations with Highest Distinction from Stanford University, and a master’s and Ph.D in political science from the University of California at Berkeley, where he was awarded a graduate student Fellowship by the National Science Foundation.
