James Holland (he/him)

Volunteer Alumni Manager

James is a management consultant at Nous Group, specialising in leadership, organisational performance and transformation. Prior to joining Nous, James studied a Bachelor of Law (Honours) and Arts at Monash University.

James is passionate about social impact. In his role, James has worked with queer NGOs and peak bodies to upskill their executive and middle management teams and restructure their organisations. His interest in a fairer society also led him to intern for a United States Congressman in Washington DC, local politicians and a national think tank. He has been a paralegal both in the community legal and plaintiff law sectors. Due to his community work, James was made an Associate fellow of the Royal Commonwealth Society in 2018 and was named one of Australia’s 30 under 30 queer leaders in 2020.

Having experienced the impact his own scholarship had on his identity and aspirations, James was proud to join The Pinnacle Foundation in 2022 as the Alumni Manager.
