Having studied History at the University of East Anglia I decided not to join the Army (university life having softened me up) and following some time travelling found myself at Andersen Consulting.
I spent a couple of years involved in large system implementation programmes and then enjoyed working with a wide range of predominantly Criminal Justice clients on varied strategic and business change engagements. These were interspersed with some more traditional programme delivery management roles.
I wanted to continue my consulting career but by staying close to clients and their business challenges and working within a fun and open business culture that continued to offer new opportunities. In this respect Berkeley, which I joined in 2008 has proved to more than fit the bill. Since then I’ve focused on supporting our clients across FMCG, Regulatory, Heath and Energy sectors to deliver complex organisational and operational change at scale.
I’m married to Claire and we have three children so we spend a lot of time juggling a pretty fully on home life with making the most of living in London. We’re also keen walkers with the Lakes a favourite destination; normally with smaller, more reluctant companions in tow.
