I was born and raised in West London where I was brought up in council housing and provided with a secondary modern education. My father was a member of the Trades Union and he was a metal worker all his life. My first job at the age of 16 was as a commercial apprentice.
Most of my career was spent in international corporations where I undertook major executive roles including Chief Financial Officer and Chief Supply Chain Officer for these corporations. I have also been the CEO of a Telecommunications start-up company.
My career also includes being a Partner in one of the Big 4 Consulting & Advisory Companies where I specialised in delivering digital transformations in the Canadian Government, Oil & Gas, Health Care and Telecommunication & Media sectors.
Later in my career, I created my own consulting and advisory services company called Digital Alchemist Consulting Services International Limited. During my time as the CEO of this organisation, I have provided consulting and advisory services to the UK NHS, UK Adult Care Services & UK Government Cabinet Office.
I have lived in Wigginton, Tring for nearly thirteen years, before that I spent 20+ years a few miles away in Buckland Village, Buckinghamshire. During my business life, I travelled extensively including living in the USA, Canada & China.
I am a lifelong member of the Labour Party.
My wife, Linda and myself have two grown-up daughters and two wonderful grandchildren.
My hobbies include business, reading, football, martial arts and feeding our ducks.
I am passionate about representing Tring in a transparent and trust-based manner; which I think is more important than ever in today’s society.
