Food & Consumer references


Jan Bennink Kraft Foods

"His food industry knowledge is evident but he also has an insight into the human element often missed by others." (more)


Peter Brabeck Nestlé

"James has a deep and solid understanding of the food industry and its key players and, as such, he is one of the most knowledgeable people of our industry. This allows him to detect trends and patterns that others might miss. "The many years that he has spent analysing Nestlé – its categories, its strategies, its culture – has allowed him to gain a realistic perspective on our Company."


Lars Olofsson Carrefour

"I find James an intriguing and insightful person. His views and opinions on the global food industry often challenge long-held, strategic assumptions."


Paul Polman Unilever

"James has a critical view and understanding of today's realities. He is one of those rare individuals who understands the integrities of what makes businesses work from both an external and internal view." (more)


Franck Riboud Danone

"James has analysed Danone since the time when my father ran the company. Few outsiders know our company better. His analyses are always insightful and interesting, his opinions always realistic." (more)


H. Todd Stitzer Cadbury

"His ability to foresee food industry events and trends is impressive. He has an extensive knowledge of the global chocolate industry." (more)


Wolfgang Werlé*

"James instinctively separates fads from trends. In early 2004, he accurately predicted the peak and decline of the low-carb phenomenon and explained, in simple terms, the consumer behaviour behind this development. At a time when the global food industry was schizophrenic, he got it right on both counts." (Research note © Pictet & Cie. 2004)


Martyn Wilks Dairy Crest

"I knew him at Mars as a strong marketer with an ability both to deal with the big picture and to get down into the detail." (more)

* (retired Deputy Chairman of Aryzta, previously Chairman of Hiestand AG)
