James O'Shaughnessy

Community Sales Manager

I'm new to this sector and have been Community Sales Manager since October 2022. I come from a retail background, my career success has come from a simple foundation, Look after your customers. My aim is to ensure all Basepoint customers feel valued, and enjoy their day at work. 

I'm a proud family man and am extremely lucky to have an amazing little family. In my spare time I like to play Football (badly), and watch it as much as possible.
