A strategic leader, manager and human resource specialist with over 25 years experience within the domains of defence, logistics and oil & gas. His Army career, spanning 28 years, saw him command at squadron and regimental level, in numerous operational theatres around the World. Having taken premature voluntary retirement from the British Army, he took up employment as the HR Director for an oil services company operating out of Libya during a period of considerable upheaval and insecurity. More recently he has established himself as a self-employed business consultant, working with clients such as Business Aviation Services Limited: where he has set up and runs their recruitment capability. He has a genuine passion for ‘people management’. Although currently a little ‘plump’ he has a passion for sport and adventure pursuits.
