James joined Hope&Glory in May 2019 following two-year spells at both Frank and Burson-Marsteller where he gained a host of experience ranging from selling-out The Big Feastival and HSBC Rugby Sevens, promoting the Jamaica and Egypt tourist boards, to launching cars for Volvo and Ford. He is most proud of his involvement in the Missing Type campaign for the NHS Blood & Transplant and his environmental efforts for the Lewis Pugh Foundation.
Since his arrival at Hope&Glory, James has activated sports sponsorship opportunities for American Express, Hotels.com and Paddy Power across the worlds of tennis, football and thumb wrestling. His current clients include Guinness, Sony, Hostelworld, O2 and Bethesda.
James studied Journalism at Cardiff University before swiftly making the move to the ‘dark side’ for a PR career in the bright lights of London. He can usually be found with a pint in his hand at pub quizzes, reminiscing about the better times at Old Trafford, or hitting a gaming marathon on his PS4.
