James rose from the position of Director to Managing Director of The Wigley Group in 2018, following a restructure of the company to support further expansion.
As Managing Director, he oversees the company’s performance and core divisions of commercial property, risk and construction, as well as working alongside the company’s Directors and shareholders to drive strategic growth and development across the Group’s businesses.
James joined the company in 2008 and has extensive experience acting for both landlords and tenants, as well as in commercial property acquisitions, investment and property management.
Having led the rebrand of the company in 2011 to bring Wigley Contracts and Wigley Commercial Services together as The Wigley Group, he was instrumental in the merger with UK-wide main contractor Ciexbe Limited in 2017 to form Wigley Building and Development to strengthen the Group’s construction services.
James oversaw the restructure of the company in 2018 which involved a revision of the senior management team and the creation of a central services division to provide key support to individual businesses within the Group to help with further growth.
