Prossimo was founded with the desire to give clients an alternative to the Global Services Integrator (GSI) or big-consulting experience. The team is made up of former HR practitioners, former consultants, and generally good people who are interested in helping your business.

Jim Viscanti
Founder and CEO

Jim has been in the HCM and talent management space for over 10 years. He cut his teeth as a temp supporting the simultaneous implementations of SuccessFactors talent and SumTotal learning. In the past eight years as a consultant, he has helped lead deployments for organizations in a variety of industries and tools. Most recently focused on Workday, his expertise is in being able to speak multiple languages--those of the customers and those of the vendors. As a self-admitted "geek" for all things talent, recruiting, and HR tech related, Jim loves rolling up his sleeves with clients and pushing them on how they leverage the tools they've invested in heavily.

In his downtime, he's a father to five superhero's in training and spends most of his time fighting off imaginary bad guys and disbelieving looks from his amazing wife.

Keith Barrell
Senior Consultant

A classic story. Keith retired from the Marines and found the next logical home in Workday consulting. He learned while working for one of the biggest consulting firms in the world on a project with one of the biggest companies in the world. Keith joined Prossimo in 2021 and has done everything from keep-the-lights-on support to talent & recruiting redesigns, and even some custom merit statements. His experience and ability to work with all levels of an organization help him keep projects and teams moving forward.

In his downtime, he's a father to two amazing girls, husband to one amazing girl, and the long lost companion to a set of golf clubs who he used to share a lot of time with.

Christopher Johnson
Senior Consultant

Christopher comes with a impressive track record spanning 8 years in the Workday space, and a solid consulting background at some of the biggest consulting firms out there, but don’t hold that against him. Having worked across the Information Technology, Retail and Entertainment sectors, he possesses a broad perspective on industry-specific challenges (and how those challenges can be similar across industries too). His experience extends beyond Workday, having worked with clients with platforms such as Phenom and Eightfold. This adaptability allows him to seamlessly integrate solutions from various vendors, enriching our offerings and empowering our clients.

Christopher loves traveling, playing music, kayaking, scuba diving and smoking meats on the weekends. He also has several exotic pets thanks to his wife’s interest in animals, too many to list in this post!

Whoa, wouldn't that be a crazy idea!? We don't know what the future holds for us, but it sure would be fun to share the ride with someone who is passionate about HR technology, talent and recruiting management, project success, process optimization, or other stuff we haven't even thought of yet.
