Jim Teresi

Executive Director

personel bio pic

Jim has over 40 years of Purchasing/Management experience and has a keen sense of the budgetary constraints facing nonprofit organizations on a daily basis. This unique understanding and empathy drives him to be an especially tough negotiator to the benefit of the institutions that utilize CPO services.

Jim left the private sector to join CPO in 1986, was promoted to Asst. Director in 1994, and was officially named Executive Director in 1999. He has continued to work on behalf of all our parishes, schools, and agencies through numerous negotiations with local, regional, and national vendors as well as maintaining a hands-on approach with many of the services we offer.

Jim’s commitment and strong belief in a “Centralized Purchasing System” where volume dictates price is the lynchpin that keeps CPO financially healthy and an effective resource to CPO’s vast customer base. Jim is aware that CPO cannot absolutely guarantee the very best price on every product or service every time (though our percentage is excellent), but what CPO can guarantee is “Superior Customer Service” along with a competitive price and that “Value Added” feature is what sets CPO apart from our competition.
