After studying for a Geology degree at UCL I made a quick decision that a life of looking at rocks was not for me and embarked on a career in the Events sector. I have now worked in the industry for over 20 years, most recently at ITE Group Plc, where after joining on a temporary basis in the credit control department, I embarked on a fascinating career journey. The highlights included spending 3 years as the FD for ITE’s Russian business as well the challenge of running various regions including Turkey and Ukraine!
As with my colleagues my key responsibilities include working closely with Matt and the leadership team to execute the company’s growth and investment strategies and looking after the relationships with our Key Investors. More recently I have taken on the challenge of leading Ocean’s Data protection work.
Over the years I have had the chance to live in many countries, including France, Spain, Gabon, Ghana, Tanzania and Russia but now live in leafy South West London with my wife (a fellow Geology student), our 3 children and the family hamster. Weekends are mostly taken up watching the kids play a variety of sports and occasionally sitting through grade 1 clarinet recitals.
