MD, Wunderman Thompson Inside


  • London

James Sanderson leads Wunderman Thompson Inside, a global on-site agency model, which launched in March 2018.

Based out of Wunderman’s Thompson’s London office, James brings two decades’ worth of digital on-site and off-site agency experience to the organization. James helped to establish one of the first digital agencies in the UK, DNA (now Publicis Sapient) and was MD of Glue London (now Isobar), helping the start-up become one of the most awarded creative digital agencies in the world.

James joined Digitas as UK President and, after a spell in consulting, joined Oliver, becoming COO in 2017 and working with many client-located teams including Unilever’s U-Studio.

James joined WPP’s Wunderman in 2018 and is responsible for establishing a growing new practice within the agency - one that places Wunderman Thompson teams permanently onsite to work alongside clients in their day-to-day business activities.
