A big fan of the Smiths – a group he listens to on loop – James organizes his life around family, friends, his collection of Geo magazines started in 1986, travel and his 13,581 Indie pop singles. His dream: driving an old black convertible Mustang.

Holding a Master in Marketing, he completed his training in Berlin where he studied the economic and political liberalization of Central and Eastern European countries. After a two-year transition within a PCO agency (Professional Conference Organizer) he founded the agency EVIC Events in Paris in 1999, specializing in creating and organizing conferences. EVIC was sold in 2006 to Colloquium where he held the position of Director of Marketing and Development. In 2009 he joined GL Events group where he developed the PCO service offering in synergy with the Convention Centre.

Close friend of Camille Voisin and Caroline Metais, James co-founded Eventime with them in order to bring his expertise both in development and in the sector of MICE (Meeting Incentives, Congress & Exhibition).
