Twenty years ago, James started his career as a financial analyst in Sydney working nine-to-five, feeding a fascination for the phenomenon that is Kenyan running on the side. How an Australian desk jockey with a passion for African athletics ended up managing one of the world's best runners came down to chance and a connection that transcended cultural differences.
Today, he represents a small and elite group of some of the world's best middle-distance runners, and a combination of several Gold, Silver and Bronze medals at all the major games attributed to his clients.Contact James
