James Ward

Senior Project Manager

Hi, I'm James, one of the Project Managers at BDA.


I’ve spent my entire career working in design agencies in project/account management roles. I’ve been lucky enough to work across a range of different sectors, including sport, education and hospitality with clients such as World Rugby, the England and Wales Cricket Board, Greene King and Mitchells & Butlers.

I take great satisfaction in watching projects develop from the initial brief through to delivery of the final product. My strengths lie in my attention to detail, my organisational skill and the ability to see the ‘bigger picture’. I also thrive on bringing disparate elements together to ensure projects run as smoothly as they can, both from a client and an internal perspective.

Outside of work, I love spending time with my wife and two children. In between episodes of Peppa Pig and Horrid Henry and heading to the swings at the local playground, I like to run, cycle and watch sport. As a Luton Town fan, I am an eternal optimist, and try to get to Kenilworth Road as often as I can.

My active lifestyle means I can indulge in one of my other loves – food. I’ll eat almost anything and lots of it.

There’s only one way to succeed in anything, and that is to give it everything. I do, and I demand that my players do.
