After graduating from the University of Bristol, I started my consulting career back in 2007 with Accenture. Here, I got lots of hands-on technology delivery experience with various Private Sector clients. I then moved onto KPMG to get more business focused consulting experience, primarily around strategy and change management in the Public Sector. For the last 2.5 years, I was with Deloitte where I was able to bring together my technology and business consulting experience, whilst managing large-scale technology strategy engagements.
Some of my most exciting projects include managing the design and implementation of a new operating model for a major police force, improving the way they take, handle and respond to emergency and non-emergency calls. Managing the implementation and transition to a new digital platform for a global car manufacturer, transforming their digital operations and customer experience.
I made the decision to join Berkeley in the summer of 2018 for a number of reasons; the exposure and variety of work that’s on offer was a big factor, but also how personable and genuine the firm came across was something I really valued.
Outside of work, I live in North West London with my wife, Lianna, our daughter, Florence and our son, Joseph. I try to keep active and enjoy playing football, squash and (trying to play) golf. I am also a bit of a self-confessed geek and am interested in any new tech and gadgets.
