James

Team Principal
Director 
Pronouns: he/him

James, originally from the historical city of Bath, England, began his journey in online business when he built an eCommerce website selling baby products to fund his family’s move from England to Virginia in 2005. That venture kicked off a love for marketing that would eventually lead to the opening of his own full-service marketing agency. He honed his digital marketing skills while serving as webmaster for James Madison University, and he’s always trying to learn and keep up with new digital trends. He’s all about that collaborative nature of this friendly city, and is very proud to call Charlottesville and Central Virginia his home.
