James Riley

Owner, JNR Networks

James Riley has been “doing” IT since he was in high school, over 20 years ago. Over the years, he grew his skillset and roles. He has worked in a wide variety of environments, from small businesses to corporate, in both in-house IT and consulting roles.

He got into business by accident. The clients he served on the side wanted more of him, so he started a business. Over the years, James has moved from the role of Network Engineer to Business Engineer as he builds and runs his company, JNR Networks with his wife, Natalie. They have built fierce loyalty with their clients by combining their passion for people and process to deliver automation with a very personal touch.

In his spare time, he loves to spend time with his wife and four daughters. (Yep, he has five females in the house plus a dog!) He also enjoys working with others as a professional scuba diver and instructor.

Tip: Don’t shy away from hard work but do not confuse hard work with productivity. Work hard AND smart!
