About me


From February 2011 to May 2017 I was the Chief Executive of Angus Council in Scotland. Over the previous  20 years I held senior roles at North Lincolnshire Council, Education Leeds, Dudley MBC and Suffolk County Council. I now work as an independent consultant and non-executive director.

I was born and brought up in Suffolk, I am married with two sons and two amazing  grandchildren. My likes include anything to do with the sea, being in France when it’s sunny, motorcycles, Ipswich Town Football Club and cricket all year round – England and Essex being the best loved. My younger son races motorcycles and I am mad enough to help when I can.
