James has been a Trustee since 2014 and is also a member of Finance Committee and the Property Working Group.

James has been working in Fundraising management for the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust at its Slimbridge headquarters since 2014. Prior to this role, he enjoyed a varied career of more than 20 years in Financial Services, holding a number of senior positions with major international financial institutions.

For many years an active volunteer in conservation, since starting a new career in the sector, James has been living in the Cotswolds AONB. For its great fauna and flora biodiversity James counts Lower Moor Farm as his favourite reserve and one day hopes to spot one of the site's otters on one of his visits there.
