Unlike the long-standing members of CSW’s leadership team, I am relatively new to this sector but not without experience in service provision. I began as an engineer officer in the Royal Navy, with time at sea and ashore providing multiple learning opportunities and secondments alongside civil service colleagues. Through senior appointments I developed skills in my core professional expertise, government governance, and people management. I later worked for Babcock, leading teams in the UK and abroad in NZ, which has strengthened my strategic and commercial experience.
As Managing Director at CSW, I am able to combine my previous experience with long-held personal values founded on integrity, dedication, and compassion to benefit this organisation, with its focus that we are all passionate about – the support of vulnerable young people in the region in which we live.
In my spare time, I focus my time on my family and enjoying the beautiful part of the country we live in.
