James + Giles appoints Jamie Erasmus
London-based home integration specialist James + Giles (J+G) has announced that is has appointed Jamie Erasmus to the position of managing director.
Erasmus joins James + Giles following founder Giles Sutton accepting the position of senior vice president of industry engagement at CEDIA last month.
Erasmus’ previous roles in the custom installation sector have included design director at Knektd (2012-2017) and owner of JPE Audio Visual.
“J+G is a very successful business, with an outstanding team of people,” commented Erasmus. “The company is highly respected by its peers within the industry and by the many architects, designers, developers and high net worth individuals that it serves.
The opportunity to take such a well-known and admired business to the next level with all the expertise and resources at its command rarely comes along, and, when it does, you just have to take it.”
He adds: “In many ways, it’s a completely natural evolution for J+G and for me, personally. Giles and I share the same business ideals, the same commitment to great project aesthetics and interior detailing, and the same passion for professional home technology and the amazing benefits that it can bring to our customers.
I’m also looking forward to growing the business with my own fresh ideas, experiences and connections within the design and build community.”
On the move, Giles Sutton said: “I am incredibly proud of the company I have built, but at the same time, I find myself ready for a new challenge.”
“Having known Jamie for many years, I am convinced he is the right person to lead J+G. He has the talent and the industry experience, the business skills and the vision to take J+G forwards into an exciting and prosperous future.”
James + Giles was established in 2006 and partners with designers and property developers to deliver home technology projects across Europe, working across lighting control, home cinema, security and CCTV, HVAC, multi-room AV and data networking, and more.
