James has spent most of his career in banking, specialising in the two key sectors of Media and Green Energy. Since leaving banking in 2019, he has worked in the media space, supporting clients in delivering operational change, and developing and enhancing client relationships.
He has raised money to support film and TV productions.
Having lived and breathed the banking world for many years, James’ lust for creativity took over: he was compelled to take inspiration from the characters he met and insider information he learned. With these he created “The Contractor” and the world in which he inhabits... a world so unbelievable it must be true...
