My initial career followed a fairly formal route, having gained a Business Studies degree at Bradford Business School. I worked for two FTSE 250 companies for over 15 years gaining qualification as a Chartered Secretary along the way. I had a fairly good grounding in different sectors, initially within a sales & marketing business and then within a large conglomerate with 5,000 employees.
Having left the formal world to set up my own Management Consultancy business, one of my first clients was Paul Farrer at Phee Farrer Jones - now Aspire. One day a week turned to two and I joined formally in 1996. Our complementary skills have worked in harmony since then and we have built a business to be proud of. I see my key role now to be to maximize the profitability of the business by releasing the full potential of all who work at Aspire.
Outside of work I have a great wife, 4 children and my interests are playing golf and watching football.
