If something needs worrying about, this is your man. His attention to detail and slight OCD comes in handy though, as the finer details of a project, research paper or training session are never left to chance. On occasions known for his Trigger (Only Fools and Horses) “speak before you think” moments and king of the dad joke; the bad ones at that. One of the oldest serving members of the team he’s passionate about the company’s growth. If there’s something James doesn’t know about a hand dryer and washroom product then it’s not worth knowing (yes, he’s fun at parties).

If you could, what one thing would you ban which would improve the environment and why? 

Fossil fuels, because there are now many was to provide renewable energy yet there seems to be a constant reliant on fossil fuels to create energy. If the scientists have it right, which I believe there’s too much evidence available to be able to think otherwise and ignore it, fossil fuel production and use is one of the major contributors to climate change.
