The Lilac James Co. was founded in 2008 by Karen James, MCIM.

Karen had a successful corporate career but left it behind to fulfil a long held ambition to run her own business and improve her quality of life. Capitalising on her original marketing degree and non-conformist reputation, Karen founded her creative Marketing Agency and has never looked back.
