James Keetley

James has 25 years’ experience in Procurement, Operations and Commercial Leadership, in both private and public sector organisations in multiple industries. He was as a Director for Accenture for 7 years where he led Supply Chain and Procurement transformation for many of the world’s leading brands. His most recent role was Head of Procurement for Cornwall Council where he focussed on driving value for money by balancing commercial and social value objectives. James is highly skilled at leading transformational projects while ensuring teams remain motivated, operational changes are practical and commercial outcomes are achieved. He shares these skills with Less Plastic enabling us to scale-up our impact, while also helping the businesses we work with to reduce plastic in their supply chains in a cost neutral way. James loves being both in the sea as a keen outdoor swimmer, and on it using his SUP, kayak or attempting to surf with his boys.
