James Major

Director and Lead Implementation Consultant

James is a founder shareholder with G7, and became a Director in April 2014. As our Unit4 ERP Consulting Director, James leads and develops a number of our larger Unit4 ERP projects.

After starting life as a programmer with YJ Lovell Holding Plc, developing finance systems, James then moved into a systems analysis role. He also trained as a property management surveyor, taking on the responsibility for a property portfolio and their financials.

James then joined the Jon Hawkins Partnership as a Lawson Application Consultant, and when the company became G7, he became an Unit4 ERP Application Consultant – eventually developing into a Senior and Lead Consultant and Solution Architect. Building on this vast experience, James has been instrumental in developing a substantial Unit4 ERP team within G7.

Away from business systems, you might find James watching his beloved West Ham (he’s a season-ticket holder) or Middlesex CCC. He also completed the London Marathon on his 18th birthday – which means he has an unbreakable record as the youngest ever participant!
