Jen James

Business Development Manager


A designer by trade, Jen finds her tactile creative outlet through tinkering around in her work shop. She designs and builds large reclaimed wood furniture and odd electronics.


Jen heads Business Strategy and Development in GGLO’s Los Angeles office. Originally from LA, but grown on the East Coast, Jen focused on new venture and strategic design since 2008. She led her own strategic design firm for six years before becoming a consultant and honing in on her love for the built environment in the AEC industry. She believes that creatives, architects, and urban designers have a responsibility to improve the world through intelligence-based design.

In addition to her professional life, Jen enjoys challenging herself both mentally and physically by trail running long distances. She’s ran over 10,000 miles in three years from beaches to mountaintops, and doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon.
