I graduated from the University of Manchester with a Degree in Management and a Masters in Marketing, before starting out on a “big 4” management consulting career with KPMG. It was a great place to learn the trade and build experience.

But in early 2008 I bumped into The Berkeley Partnership whilst working with a major Oil & Gas client, and I got to see Berkeley in action. I was really impressed by the way a small number of Berkeley consultants could make such a big difference. Also, how Berkeley had become a welcome extension of the client’s leadership team. They did this simply by always putting the client’s interests first. It was a different model of consulting, and one that I really admired. Inevitably, within a few months I had made the switch from KPMG to Berkeley!

Over the last 20 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 married to Vanessa and we have two children. When I get the chance, my main hobbies are fitness training, skiing and snowboarding, being a bit of a wine geek.
