James Loudon

Founder, Propeller and Co

I started Propeller & Co this year to work with a collective of digital innovation, sustainability transformation and geo-strategy experts in order to provide industrial businesses the depth and the breadth of capabilities needed to increase “future readiness.” MING Labs and IoT ONE are my strategic partners in this new journey amongst a wider network of consulting boutiques. In the last decade, I worked with IMA Asia to build from the ground up a leading membership-driven C-suite network and peer group forum in Shanghai that would end up servicing over 250 corporate members. In the 2000s, I led enterprise sales for the Beijing office of the EIU and the Economist Corporate Network, scaled the commercial operations for a Shanghai city-owned newspaper. Before relocating to China in 2003, I worked in Amsterdam as an analyst at PeopleSoft (Oracle), as a digital editor at Holland Media Group (RTL), and a project manager at EURO RSCG Interaction, HAVAS. I have an MSc in Economics at the Erasmus School of Economics.

Purpose of group

Welcome to the Asia Growth Exchange, co-curated by Erik Walenza and James Loudon. We want to build this community to be a helpful space for executives and domain experts to exchange knowledge on topics related to innovation, digitalization, and growth strategy. This space complements our live peer-to-peer exchanges as the asynchronous messaging space where like-minded professionals can share ideas, challenges, best practices, and emerging next practices.
