- JDResources, Inc.CIO, 1987 - present
Danny McKinney is the CIO for JDResources; he began his career over 30 years ago as a Computer Operator for a local Memphis cotton company. During the years that followed, he worked for a number of companies with increasing responsibilities. The final position he held in Information Technology was Sr. Systems Analyst for the Unisys Corp. When seeking a change in employment, he spoke with Jill Herrin about finding a new opportunity. During this conversation, she mentioned becoming a Recruiter and, after several weeks of talking, he changed careers. Danny worked as a Recruiter for JDResources for 12 years, during which time he worked on computer related development in the background. As technology grew, it became more time consuming, so Danny became full-time CIO for the company. He has been with JDR for over 25 years now.
