James comes from the technology sector having worked across business development and management for a Dunedin based technology company. His interest in the professional services sector is that it has a very real impact on clients being successful, and technology helps make this happen.
James is heavily involved in sport, currently as a Trustee for Sport Otago, Selector for the New Zealand Blacksticks Men's hockey team and advising the New Zealand Olympic Committee in his role on the Olympian Association. James is currently coach of the John McGlashan 1st XI hockey team, player coach for the Kings United Hockey Club, and supports his two young children develop their sporting skills.
Outside of work and organised sport James likes to spend his time riding mountain bikes with his family and relaxes by brewing mostly drinkable beer.
