I graduated from the University of Manchester with a degree in Management and a masters in Marketing before joining the Tesco Group on their global management graduate training scheme. It was a great opportunity to finally put into practice all the theory I had learnt in the lecture room, especially in an environment as competitive and fast-moving as the international retail industry.
However after a relatively short period of time I realised that I was looking for a different challenge and having seen some management consultants in action I was instantly hooked. I decided to move on and pursue a career in management consultancy which ultimately took me to KPMG’s consulting practice. Being one of the “Big 4”, KPMG Consulting was a great place to learn the trade.
I joined The Berkeley Partnership back in early 2008, having observed them working at an energy company where I really admired the way they rolled up their sleeves and became a welcome and integral part of the client’s management team, whilst always putting quality and the client’s interests first.
Over the last 18 years, I’ve been lucky enough to undertake a great mixture of consulting work across some fascinating clients. I have particularly enjoyed focusing on technology-enabled strategy and transformation, predominantly in the marketing, media, communications and customer relationship management space.
Outside of work I am a husband and father of two. When I get the chance, my main hobbies are fitness training, skiing and snow-boarding, and (to undo all the fitness work) exploring wines of the world.
