James Connelly

Founder & CEO

Mobile and digital are colliding. A mobile agency is better positioned to understand consumers going forward.

James launched Fetch, one of the world’s first mobile agencies, in 2009. Previous experience working in performance marketing in London and Sydney made him want to get results for clients in mobile.

And he’s done it. The Drum Magazine has named him one of the industry’s Top 50 Most Influential Individuals in Mobile, and he’s also been included in the BIMA 2014 Hot 100: a celebration of the top 100 people in digital today.

The fact that he’s done so much, so young has seen James feature on lists like Media Week’s 30 Under 30 Ones to Watch, as well as Growing Business’ Young Guns 30 Under 30 Entrepreneurs.

He’s a popular speaker and industry spokesperson, with a regular blog on the Huffington Post. But James does occasionally take a break: most weekends you’ll find him on the green or on two wheels.

Best bit of advice ever received:

Just do it.
