Jim's Biography

I have more than 30 years of specialist international M&A, operational and financial management experience in the marketing and advertising industry.

I’m very proud to have led transformational M&A deals for the leaders and shareholders of class-leading business including We Are Social, 160over90, Teneo Blue Rubicon and Iris.

Although I’ve led many corporate finance transactions, I’ve never considered myself a Banker but rather a deal maker in an industry that I’m passionate about. I’ve split my career between roles in industry and as a professional adviser. As an adviser, I was formerly a Managing Director at Ingenious and a Partner at Results International. In industry, I was appointed CFO at 160over90 in Philadelphia in 2016 after its sale to Searchlight Capital, and was previously European MD of Omnicom’s experiential network, the Radiate Group, led Omnicom’s M&A activity in Europe for 8 years, completing 40 transactions and sitting on many agency Boards.
