James Bullock is Senior Vice President and General Manager of Digital Services at Tacit Knowledge, a Newgistics company, where he oversees all aspects of the Digital segment of the business, including P&L, sales and account relationships, delivery and business segment strategy.

In 2009, James returned to London to launch and grow the Tacit U.K. business. By building strong partnerships with best-in-class product companies like Endeca, Adobe and SAP Hybris and hiring the best local talent to blend with Tacit’s engineering delivery teams in Moldova and Mexico, James has led Tacit to become one of the premium eCommerce consultancies in Europe, winning back-to-back Hybris SAP partner awards. Prior to Tacit, James worked as a technologist developing online systems to the Royal Bank of Scotland in London.
Chris began his career in his hometown of Honolulu working as a developer for a little known start-up destined for even greater obscurity called Computer Visualizations. In the late nineties, he moved to San Francisco and joined Organic, Inc. During the four years that followed, he became the Director of Software Engineering in San Francisco and worked almost exclusively on e-commerce applications.
In 2002, he co-founded Tacit Knowledge, and has since worked on digital initiatives with retailers such as Converse, Kodak, Barnes and Noble, Sony, Macys, Sephora, The Body Shop and Gap.
Chris has also spoken on topics such as online privacy, analytics, clickstream behavior in Web applications, XML use in systems integration, Web 2.0 strategies, social networks, and best practices in Agile development.
He holds a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder that he’s never really applied to anything beyond rocket-scientist jokes.
