James Sturrock, Managing Director
James in less than 20 words:
Highly experienced marketing and commercial leader, an advocate of continuously working to find a ‘better way’.
James has spent his working life working for market leaders or category disrupters, embracing a challenge and relishing empowering the underdog in business. And now he leads a business that is a perfect combination of a leader and a disruptor.
Reasons for joining the PhotoBox family:
“I come from a family of retail enthusiasts and couldn’t help but end up in a forward thinking retail environment like the PhotoBox family. That plus all my friends singing the Moonpig.com jingle to me every time we meet – I’ve never looked back!”
- Winning young marketer of the year for a stellar campaign at Direct Line (that was a while ago as you can probable see from my profile photo!)
- Growing a new business division within Direct Line targeting a new customer audience to over £100m
James hold a BA from the University of Reading in European Economics and Politics with French Language
Bringing up children – the biggest education in influencing skills, negotiation and patience!
Away from the office:
James entered a triathlon recently, only to discover that running really wasn’t for him – but this was 5km into the run! Mostly he sticks to cycling around the Surrey countryside and spending time with his young family encouraging them all to send lots of greetings cards, flowers and gifts where possible of course.‹ Back to Leadership page
