James is responsible for engaging with new business members looking to be part of the Foundation’s network across the globe. By understanding how an organisation’s strategy, on circular economy, aligns with the Foundation and it’s partners; James is able to work closely with other project leads, and provide context to the business community on how they can engage effectively with EMF. In short, a story teller with an eye for an opportunity.
Some how James managed to squirrel his way into EMF HQ in early 2018, and relocated to the Isle of Wight after a hiatus of 15 years (so far no one has found him out). Despite having some strong opinions on things that most people don't care about, James has settled well into the new-found simplicity of his Island life, interspersed with international travel for the Foundation. During his time away from the Island, James spent 12 of the last 15 years as a mine clearance diving officer with the Royal Navy, travelling the world and enjoying the adventure.
