James Quarles




A big fish among big fishes in social media. Although James has kickstarted his career at a rather tech director’s chair in Dell UK, in 2011 he joined Facebook to become a social media rising star. He served as Facebook’s EMEA Director. Under his watch the social media platform number one expanded in the region and so it was no surprise he has climbed up the ladder and become a vice president of Instagram with the focus on business development.

From 2014 until 2017 Instagram has seen both a massive popularity and revenue growth and so James has acquired yet another success in the startup world. Since 2017 James has been a CEO to Strava, the most engaged community of athletes in the world. Under James watch Strava is skyrocketing it’s popularity gaining 1 million users every 40 days!
