2 min read
Cantarus is excited to announce another new member of the team, James Fear, who has taken up the position of Principal Consultant alongside another recent appointment, Mark Eichler.
James has held senior management and director-level positions for over twenty years, the last ten of which have focused on working with membership and education organisations to provide them with viable, practical and successful business solutions. James has supported over 75 Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and 30 membership organisations, with the delivery of their marketing communications, specifically relating to matters concerning recruitment, retention and engagement. He has established a strong rapport with stakeholders at all levels, across a wide variety of roles.
Through extensive relationship-building, long-term strategic partnerships and regular industry event attendance, including CASE, NAFSA (domestic and international education conferences) and membership conferences, James has developed a vast knowledge of the workings, culture and personnel within these sectors. He has a strong understanding of the relevant terminology and appreciation of the needs and challenges faced, as well as remaining sensitive to matters like budgetary constraints.
His approach remains one where integrity sits at the core of any given consultative advice provided.
Lee Adams, CEO at Cantarus, comments:
“It is a genuine privilege to welcome James as a Principal Consultant. As an executive with over a decade of director-level experience, James brings a wealth of experience, expertise and passion for delivering the very best to clients, notably in membership and higher education. James will use his client-side knowledge of the challenges faced by our target markets to help us refine our existing products and services to deliver best-in-class value, whilst also bringing fresh ideas to generate innovative new solutions to both new and existing market segments.”
Outside of work, James enjoys traveling and the outdoors, particularly if it is French-related. He is also a big sports fan, notably rugby, and is a Leicester Tigers season ticket holder.
Everyone at Cantarus is delighted to welcome James to the team.
