I am an experienced financial and commercial adviser and NED who specialises in advising the private and public sectors on innovation, large scale procurement and infrastructure assignments and the design and delivery of complex transformation and improvement programmes.
As an adviser who has led projects in a variety of sectors including Central Government, Local Government and Education I have contributed to examples of national guidance and advised on a number of award winning projects.
Currently working with the academic community at the University of Leeds to develop research and innovation projects and apply these to complex industrial challenges. This includes creating Space Hub Yorkshire, the UKSA funded regional Space cluster.
Prior to joining the University I was a Director at PA Consulting where amongst a number of responsibilities I designed and delivered a programme for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to help UK exporters increase trade to 40 selected countries and led PA’s commercial work on the £1.2Bn cross-Whitehall Prosperity Fund. Before my time at PA I was a Director in Deloitte’s Corporate Finance Government and Infrastructure team where I specialised in devising and developing creative commercial structures to deliver major Public Private Partnerships.
