What is your role?
I am the Director leading our specialism in the academies sector. I also look after a wide ranging portfolio of clients covering a number of other sectors, many of whom I have worked with for a number of years.
What else are you involved with?
I am a Governor of Lincoln College, Lincoln College Academies Trust and St Hugh’s School and a director of Kenwick Park Golf Club Ltd. I am also a Freeman of the City of London, and also a Liveryman, being a member of the Worshipful Company of Chartered Accountants.
What interests do you have outside of work?
I enjoy scuba diving, but only on holiday overseas in clear warm water, playing golf, and have recently started competing in triathlons.
What is your most memorable experience?
To date it has to be diving with Hammerhead sharks.
What is the most valuable piece of advice you have been given during your career?
When visiting clients at their premises always reverse into the parking space so that if you have to leave after a difficult meeting you can drive straight out rather than having the indignity of firstly having to reverse before driving off.
