Meet the CES Team

James McKinnon (Principal)

James worked at the Accident Compensation Commission (now WorkSafe), before joining one of the insurers in the early 90’s before moving to Mildura in 1995 to head up the local branch.

He returned to Melbourne in 1998 as Mercantile Mutual’s State Development Manager and joined CES Consulting in 2002.

He is hell bent on assisting employers to improve outcomes. His legislative knowledge and ability to identify various solutions to a problem make him an asset to our clients.

James is married with a daughter, Hannah. He’s a die-hard North Melbourne fan and has been going to games since the days you could go on the ground for the huddles at quarter-time and three-quarter time.

He’s also a mad-keen golfer, and loves scuba diving. A favourite spot in Port Phillip Bay is Lonsdale Wall, a 40m drop off the coast of Queenscliff. The bay’s marine life and corals are amazing.
