Those that can, do… and James certainly does more than most. Not content unless everything and everyone at Thunderhead moves as ONE.

As Chief Operating Officer, James is responsible for the day-to-day management of the Executive team, and is the driving operational force across all areas of the business. An accomplished midfield general, James is as comfortable upfield with the sales and marketing teams as he is back at HQ helping keep the beating heart of the business, well, beating. Armed with the grittiest of true Northern grit and determination, James is a formidable and trusted company asset.

Complementing his operational smarts, James has strong financial and leadership experience in the tech sector across public, venture capital and private equity ownership. With previous CFO roles held in the UK, mainland Europe and North America, including NASDAQ, FTSE 250 and SIX (Swiss) companies; James’s CV truly reads like a copy of Lonely Planet.

Prior to joining Thunderhead James was the CFO at Socialbakers, a leading provider of social analytics technology and before that held positions at Myriad Group AG, Aircom International, Openwave Systems and Anite.

James is a big non-fiction fan and particularly enjoys to read theoretical physics and quantum theory works, he claims it helps him relax. He is also a yoga fanatic, and boasts an exceptional ‘downward dog’… umm, we’ll just take your word for that James.
