Chief Strategy Officer at Stack

About me

James began his career above the line, working at DFGW, Partners BDDH and AMV, before he decided to expand his horizons and experience other kinds of advertising at the wonderful Craik Jones.

After Craik Jones he left the country and spent six months living in a cave in France. Finally returning to Britain he ended a short freelance stint at iris four years later as Head of Planning, moving to The Communications Agency and then Rapier as Planning Director.

James has worked on brands including Land Rover, first direct, The Balvenie, NatWest, American Express, The National Trust, Utterly Butterly (twice) and the Cutty Sark. Highlights include a D&AD Yellow Pencil, a DMA Grand Prix and a Highly Commended (aka Thank You For Turning Up) at the APG Creative Planning Awards.

When he’s not at work James rides strange, slow bicycles, cooks food, plays the harmonica, reads about late Roman history and argues with his children about screen time.
