I have worked in the communications industry for 36 years, managing successful IT projects in local government, service management contracts in the finance industry, and working with the Third Sector managing the organisations' volunteering programme.

Business Development

I relish the diversity and excitement of working with a broad range of organisations and I’m most satisfied when I can help them make positive changes that enhance their success. 

I have spent more than 20 years in business from start-ups to global multinationals and all with a focus on developing new or growing revenues with a broad range of customers across many industries.

My aim is to bring my experience and passion for growth with a focus on sales as the engine to achieve this.   People are the most valuable tools of any organisation and providing coaching and guidance should be the number one priority.

I enjoy running (mostly 10k distances off road) and have a particular obsession for Tough Mudder or anything similar where the team needs to work together.

My procurement and supply chain experience covers many industries. I love to see the incredible difference that an empowered procurement team can make to an organisation.

My procurement and supply chain experience covers many industries including, pharmaceuticals, electronics, plastics, and Consumer Goods for over 25 years.   Throughout my procurement career, I have found that you need a healthy positive mindset, great stakeholder engagement, good project management and some fundamentally effective processes. I always try to bring strong analytics coupled with a truly relationship-centred approach to every project I deliver.  

I love to see the incredible difference that an empowered procurement team can make to an organisation and most recently, my team and I won the highly prestigious World Procurement Awards - Transformation for the restructuring and revitalisation of procurement at Cancer Research UK.  My personal aim is to bring the same level of engagement and excitement to every supply chain team and to really empower procurement professionals to reach the highest level of corporate visibility

I speak fluent Mandarin Chinese on the back of many years living and sourcing from in Asia and can get around in German and French.

In my spare time, I am an avid skipper of off-shore yachts and enjoy spending time with my family in rural Oxfordshire. Despite the ravages of the last two cold winters, I still persist with gardening and trying to squeeze a small crop out of my allotment.
