What makes James Barnes-Austin from Sherper Group a great human being?
First of all, there is probably no network agency that had the pleasure of working James as a CFO or COO - Ogilvy, Dentsu, Publicis and even a stint at Accenture after the Karmarama exit. James has an incredible wealth of knowledge when it comes to the opps and financial side of running an agency. Few people can come even close to it. His calm nature means he can also explain complex concepts in an approachable manner. James and his business partner Deepa Shah set up a fascinating offering for agencies advising on the pre-M&A journey. James is a great all around human being. Helpful and knowledgeable CFO and COO.
