James started his career in journalism before moving into account management. He joined Media First five years ago and has been Managing Director since 2012. When he is not in the office, or looking after his children, James can be found fishing, listening to Rod Stewart albums, or upsetting his boyhood snooker idols by beating them at 9-ball pool. He recently enjoyed teaching former snooker star John Virgo some new trick shots.
