James has a genuine passion for learning new technologies and has wanted to immerse himself into the battery industry as much as possible. From private start-ups to large OEM’s, he's honed his skills in full-cycle battery recruitment: Electro-chemistry, Cell Manufacturing, Module & Pack Assembly, EV Battery Pack Integration, Energy Storage Systems, Second Life Usage and Battery Recycling. Having said that, his specialism is in the earlier stages of the battery manufacturing process (Chemistry / Materials Science). James is particularly knowledgeable on electrode manufacture and the technical processes around powders, slurries and deposition.
He finds huge reward in matching top-performing and "rising star" professionals with the right career in innovative, forward thinking, battery companies.
When he is not recruiting you would probably find him holidaying in Las Vegas (where he married his wife), watching old re-runs of Top Gear or pumping iron in the gym.
