View my portfolio

I am a Chartered Director, a Fellow of the Institute of Directors and an experienced non-executive director who has been in the biopharmaceutical industry for over 20 years. My non-executive positions include Quanticate Limited, a Clinical Research Organisation born out of the merger of Statwood and Oxford Pharmaceutical Sciences, a company I founded in 1996. I have been appointed as an ambassador for the Chartered Director programme from the Institute of Directors and I am actively involved in the education of corporate governance within my role on the Oxfordshire IoD committee. I have significant experience in the third sector, initially as cofounder of PhUSE where I helped implement a strategy that has seen this volunteer organisation establish itself globally and more recently with my appointment as non-executive chair of the board of trustees of the Oxfordshire Science Festival, one of the top five science festivals in the UK.
