Summarise your career history...

In my 40-year career to date, I’ve mostly been involved in financial services, initially as a Chartered Accountant and more recently as Managing Director of a diversified international financial group. I’ve also sat on multiple insurance and reinsurance boards in a non-executive capacity. I have been in a leadership role with Abbey International Finance since it was founded in 1990. During that time, we’ve started numerous new businesses, particularly in the insurance space, in collaboration with many business partners. Under my leadership, Abbey has grown to an organisation of more than 130 staff, with net assets exceeding $150 million.

How do you spend your spare time?

Playing golf or watching sport generally.

I have recently discovered that walking the dogs along the local river walk is complete satisfaction.
