About James

Previously, James spent seven years at Carta, where he led teams across several functions and was responsible for business-critical market expansions and product launches. After leaving Carta James served as Head of GTM at web3 infrastructure startup Syndicate. He is relocating from the US to London to take up his role with Ledgy.

James’s hire comes as Ledgy builds out its suite of financial reporting tools for growth-stage scaleups, and expands into new product areas including equity benchmarking. In February, Ledgy announced the appointment of Svein Petter Undheim as the company's first Head of Financial Reporting.

Ledgy CEO Yoko Spirig said: “I can’t wait to work alongside James as Ledgy continues to scale up in Europe and beyond. Our team is already benefiting from his leadership and insights.

“In the last 18 months we have focused on building products and features that help teams in large, complex international organisations do great work. James’s experience serving some of the world’s best and most sophisticated tech companies at Carta will be a huge value-add to the Ledgy team.”

James said: “I have been hugely impressed by the calibre of the team Ledgy is building and the ambition of Yoko, Ben and Timo’s vision for the company.

“I am excited to help Ledgy capitalise on its leading position in the UK and Europe, and build an enduring business that has customer focus at its core. I know from my own experience as an early employee at Carta that companies still grapple with challenges around internationalisation, dialogues with regulators, and preparing for exit events, among others. Ledgy has a unique opportunity to help ease these headaches for customers, which played a big part in my decision to join forces with Yoko and the team.”
