Judge Profile

James Maguire
Director
Crannull

James was brought up within the construction industry and prior to graduating from university, James spent many summers working on site with Byrne Bros, giving him a great understanding of how this sector operated.

With a Degree in Business Studies, James was originally going to pursue a career in accountancy, however, taking a temporary sales job highlighted a natural ability in corporate sales, which later turned into a permanent role.

James spent many years in the Corporate Finance Market where he realised that the more sales opportunities you have, the more you can pick and choose which ones to focus your time on. James progressed up the Corporate ladder, leading sales teams with the philosophy being built into his teams of having more choice!

After 15 successful years in this arena, James set up Crannull with his Business Partner Tom Fitzgerald, to provide companies within the construction sector and whole built environment more sales opportunities and more choice. 8 years on and servicing over 70 different clients weekly, Crannull are still providing new sales opportunities to their clients, with many having secured several £m’s worth of business through their efforts.
