Personal biography
I am a Chartered Accountant with 30 years extensive business and finance experience, having spent much of my career heading up the Finance functions of companies within the Banking and the Technology sectors, primarily with US based companies (13 years with Bank of America). A common theme in my career has been acquisitions and integration of new businesses.

In my spare time, I endeavour to keep fit through playing tennis, swimming and gym work. I also enjoy country walks, photography and watching my teenage son play football at the weekends.

Professional/voluntary biography
Now retired, I am active in personal finance (for fun, I have qualified as a chartered and a certified financial planner), manage a family property portfolio and have an active interest in social investment and the voluntary sector. I am a volunteer debt advisor, working through the Chartered Accountants Benevolent Association.

Why I am a Trustee
A Catch Up® trustee since 2010, I continue to be impressed by the transformational effect Catch Up® can have on the lives of children who struggle with literacy and numeracy.
