President & CCO
Lee James has spent his entire 25-year career on the creative side of the industry. He has worked for CPG brands including RJ Reynolds and Coke, entertainment and telco brands like Disney, DirecTV and Verizon and bevy of financial services clients including HSBC, Bank of America, ING and Santander. His belief in hard work, an understanding of business goals, creative inspiration and a little luck – typically in that order – are all necessary components in producing the kind of measurable performance today’s brands require.
"My passion is for strong creative, but not for creative's sake."
A lover of skiing, good food, modern art and all things California – Lee understands the importance of work-life balance. He is a big believer that some of the best material in advertising finds its roots in the real and rich lives of his teams outside the office. People who have that rare gift for breathing interest and relevance into the "everyday" are what make this industry – and this agency – great.
