Power 100 2019: James Kirkham

Chief business officer, Copa90

Copa90’s goal to be the definitive youth media brand for football appeared to be in sight last year during the 2018 Fifa World Cup, when the brand amassed a record-breaking following delivering 750 million views. Kirkham has been among the brand’s driving forces, overseeing a 50% year-on-year increase in revenue and building content and media partnerships with Uber, Puma and Manchester City. Achievements within the past 12 months include growing Copa90’s audience to 650 million monthly views across all platforms, celebrating the Women’s World Cup through the "Icons" campaign and passionately championing football’s power to drive societal change.
