I have a BA (Hons) in Economics and Accounting from the University of Kent. I am an Associate Member of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) with over 25 years PQE.

I spent the first 20 years of my career in investment banking in London and New York, initially in Finance before moving to Corporate Finance and then on to become a COO of several business units at JP Morgan and Barclays Capital. I then moved to professional services, firstly at KPMG where I was the COO of the Financial Services practice and then Smith and Williamson where I was the COO of the Professional Services division.

As COO of Forresters, I am responsible for the infrastructure of the firm including Finance, HR, IT, Business Development and Records.

Away from work, I keep promising myself that I will take up running again if only so I can keep up with my two sons. I am also a cricket nut but my playing days are well behind me.
