Jim MacDougall

Strategy Associate

Born and raised in New York, Jim moved to the UK in 2022 – trading in his bagel with a schmear for pies and mushy peas.

As it happened, a change in hemispheres brought on a change in career paths as he shifted focus from tech to climate change. Jim recently earned a Masters in Sustainability at USyd, with a focus on decarbonisation and the blending of ecology with economics. Having spent six years working in sales and partnerships at technology startups in NYC, he is no stranger to uncertainty and feeds off of helping clients tackle tricky problems.

As a lover of mountains and wild places, Jim’s ‘happy place’ is waking up in a tent and brewing up his morning coffee (usually via AeroPress). While the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York may always be his paradise, Australia’s diverse landscapes – and multitude of (mostly friendly) creatures – is second to nowhere.

In his teens, Jim worked as a pizza delivery boy, trail crew worker, and summer camp counselor – the guy likes a good itinerary (and a fresh slice!).
