The former Commercial Director at LADbible Group has joined Jungle Creations.

James Wigley has taken on the role of Chief Commercial Officer after a career which has also seen him have spells at JOE Media, News UK, Channel 4 and Absolute Radio.

As Commercial Director at LADbible Group, he established the company’s London office and created its commercial model, market positioning and commercial team structure, growing the team from three to over 30 inside 18 months.

At Jungle Creations, he will be spearheading the company’s commercial ambitions, brand partnerships and commercial product development across both its UK and US offices.

Wigley said: "Jungle has built a huge following in a relatively short space of time by deeply understanding how to engage and mobilise social communities, and I’m incredibly excited to be joining the talented team as we develop how we help connect brands to a highly engaged mass youth audience in a way that affects culture and drives commerce.”

Jungle Creations owns and operates seven core media brands including Twisted, Craft Factory, VT, Four Nine, Level Fitness, Lovimals and Blue Crate, which together have amassed over 116 million followers.

Founder and CEO Jamie Bolding said Wigley was "an ideal leader for Jungle Creations’ commercial team".
