CFO and Chairman


I have always been something of a ‘renegade’ Chartered Accountant and have never conformed to the traditionally accepted image. After having worked as a manager at Arthur Andersen in London, I pursued a career in business. I subsequently developed a career in international business management and marketing in manufacturing, shipping, hotel, publishing, FMCG, retail and creative industries. My excellent professional training has always given me an advantage as a business leader, enabling me to appreciate immediately and automatically the P&L, Balance Sheet and Cash Flow implications of all decisions I was required to make or influence.


Human beings are capable of remarkable things. I had a basic and reasonably humble upbringing but my parents gave me both a good education and the confidence to believe in myself.  It gave me a drive to achieve beyond the norm, as well as insatiable entrepreneurial curiosity.


I am a complete sports ‘freak’ – I play golf whenever I can and have season tickets at both Arsenal FC and Saracens RFC.
