James Ford
Senior Consultant

James joined PLMR as a consultant in October 2012. He has a more than a decade’s experience in public affairs and corporate communications and is an expert in London politics.

Before joining PLMR James was as an aide in the office of Mayor of London Boris Johnson (2010-12) where he advised on transport, environment and digital policy and worked on iconic projects like the introduction of the Barclays Cycle Hire Scheme, the Emirates Air Line, the launch of Tech City, the introduction of WiFi on the Underground, and the New Bus for London.

Prior to joining City Hall, James was public affairs manager for the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (2004-10) during which time he led successful campaigns in support of Crossrail and in opposition to the western extension of the congestion charge. He has also worked at two public affairs consultancies and as a civil servant at the Department for Work and Pensions.

Away from work, James has worked on two Conservative general election campaigns, two Conservative leadership contests, three mayoral election campaigns, and been a candidate in two London local elections.

James is a graduate of King’s College London with a BA(Hons) in War Studies
