James Winterkorn

Senior Business Consultant

About me:

My career experience spans both the private and not-for-profit sectors. I managed auctions in London, New York and Singapore for the world’s oldest auction house, worked with governmental clients—both civilian and military—in sub-Saharan Africa and the Gulf on their systems of National Recognition (Honours Systems), and led philanthropic fundraising and partnerships development for Humanitarian and International Development causes. I’m an out-and-out generalist.

I joined 4OC at the beginning of 2023. It is a rare environment—bright minds, can- and will-do attitudes, a collective restless spirit to achieve socially beneficial outcomes with and for clients. What’s not to love!

Makes

Convening people and creating excitement about the possibilities of what could be – then making it happen. Daily Buddhist practice. A well-attended basketball court on a summer’s evening.

Breaks

Endlessly vacuuming up my children’s Lego. Resignation to the status quo.

What do you do when you’re not working

I’m father to three children (and a cat, and increasingly another cat who we seem to have semi-adopted). So, most of my time outside of work is spent ferrying my children  around to maintain their social calendars. I’m also embarking on obtaining basketball coaching qualifications.
