Jim Temple
Group CFO

We Are The Knights Who Say… “Ni”
– Monty Python

Jim is Base’s Head of Finance and Operations. Basically everything not related to design and business development falls under his responsibility. After graduating from the Solvay Business School in Brussels, Jim spent fifteen years with international stockbroker firms doing research and sales. Happy to drop the pin-striped suit and tie in favour of jeans and sneakers, Jim joined Base in 2012. He quickly found out that it is not easy to communicate numbers and processes to a bunch of hard core designers, but much more fun. Jim is also Treasurer and Board Member of a non-profit organisation providing care facilities for children exposed to abuse or neglect. He enjoys reading fantasy novels, watching TV series, eating Italian food and Belgian chocolate, drinking trappist beer, running in the woods, but he spends most weekends driving his three kids around.
