Delivering results through more than 20 years’ experience of deep industry knowledge and established long-term relationships.
As head of Redgrave’s global Digital Infrastructure Practice, James has more than two decades of experience advising some of the largest, multi-national technology companies to build Board and leadership talent.

Based in London, James leverages his deep knowledge of the market to drive key engagements for telecom operators, digital infrastructure and software companies across public and private equity markets.

James is renowned for his highly customer-centric, delivery focused approach, always putting diversity and inclusion at the forefront of everything he does.

Prior to joining Redgrave, James led the Technology and Telecoms Practice at one of the UKs leading executive search firms for almost six years. His expertise mainly spans European, UK and Asian markets.

James has a BSc (Hons) in Estate Management from Oxford Brookes. Outside of work, James has a passion for all things outdoors including golf, fly fishing and cricket. He is a member of the MCC, known as the world’s most famous cricket club. He is also an active, but rather amateur, gardener. He and his wife, Nadine, have four children, who rightly also occupy James’ time.
“I’ve spent most of my life in the infrastructure space, understanding the challenges and opportunities leaders face across the industry. It is through this knowledge that I can truly have an impact.”
