In 2002 James co-founded the 5one business. His career spans over 20 years in leading marketing services, CRM and insight agencies in both independent start-ups and major corporate environments.
James has global responsibility for 5one Group operating companies in the UK, USA, France and South Africa. With an unerring focus on the business case and ROI for our clients, James has helped 5one to deliver success stories to our retail, FMCG and financial services clients across the world.
Over the last 5 years, James has been at the forefront of 5one’s international expansion and was delighted to oversee 5one’s entry into the LaSer Group (a joint venture between BNP Paribas and Galeries Lafayette) in 2007. He has now helped the business develop into a strategic subsidiary of BNP Paribas as well as launch new 5one offices in Paris, New York, Cape Town and Johannesburg.
