Meet JBM

James Mitra

Founding Director

Who are you?

Avid rugby fan, keen discoverer of new cuisines (Afghani is a favourite) and world traveller – joined by my wonderful wife. I also love spending time with family and friends, all of whom are still trying to understand why I support the mighty Aston Villa FC!

What do you do?

Building on my experience at a FTSE 250 recruiter and a start-up consultancy firm, I set up JBM in 2012. I’m now responsible for delivering senior search mandates across the Strategy, Change and COO space. I also love to network and lead the hunt for dynamic, growing businesses to partner with. I actively promote our core values and take pride in providing a premium level of service to clients and candidates, making sure we all have lots of fun along the way.

Who inspires you?

The demi-God that is Jonny Wilkinson and the founders of Elvis & Kresse: James Henrit and Kresse Wesling (check out our blog to find out how we met…)
