James and team surfcitysurfdog 2015


"James simply crushes it as a Regional Field Marketing Manager. He knows his market intimately, he is passionate about the products he chooses to put his support behind and can gather a team of Rock Stars to get the job done! He constantly takes his role to the next level, always searching for a new way to think out of the box to connect with consumers whether on the street, social media, via video, and beyond. His entrepreneurship and creativity often prompted test programs that ended up rolling out into all out company initiatives. He is a fabulous leader and works very hard to support and guide a team to execute at his high standards. Any company would be truly lucky to have James as a part of their team." - Lindsay Kunetka, Director of Marketing Programs "I and Love and You"

James Huffman has more than 10 years experience in the field of Experiential Marketing. He recently wrapped a 2.5 year campaign as the Los Angeles Marketing Manager for "I and Love and You-Totally Awesome Pet Care."

"It was FUN, rewarding work. My colleagues at "I and Love and You" always allowed me to explore and expand, try new things, apply my passions and develop my skills in ways that pushed the boundaries of the business and the brand."

On top of managing a street team and planning activations,  James handled all of their Social Media for Southern California. He produced a series of viral videos connecting the under-appreciated line of ILY cat products with CAT CON LA, a larger than life trade show for those that fancy cats.

His background in marketing includes acting as a Market Manager or Team Lead (in NYC and LA) for clients such as ILLY ISSIMO (Coca Cola), IZZE SPARKLING FRUIT JUICE (PepsiCo), NEWCASTLE BROWN ALE, ORGANIC VALLEY, RUSSIAN STANDARD VODKA, RED BULL ENERGY DRINK, HYUNDAI, CADILLAC and BANK OF AMERICA, to name a few.
