Dan James - Wilson Partners

Dan James

I am a Director and Shareholder at Wilson Partners. I started my career as an auditor with BDO LLP, where I had a varied 11 years working from the Reading, London and Chicago offices across the Audit, Business Restructuring and, for the last 7 years, Transaction Services teams. I joined Wilson Partners in 2015.

I have two primary roles in the business; I lead the Transaction Services team that I established when I joined. The TS team is focussed on providing big firm senior experience to the lower mid-market SME, private equity and venture capital communities. I also carry the internal role of ‘Head of People’, creating and supporting a culture that allows our exceptional employees to thrive.

I approached Wilson Partners because of the refreshing and innovative approach to doing business in a stereotypically stale and traditional sector. People, be that our clients, employees or wider network, are genuinely at the heart of everything we do and we are constantly looking for ways to do things better. An inspiring group of ambitious people to be in business with and to do business with – it’s fun!

It’s not just Dan’s hard work and attention to detail – all whilst seeing the bigger picture and proactively raising issues / opportunities / ideas – but also his ‘can-do’ attitude, which makes working with him very enjoyable.
