I was born and educated in Penrith before moving to Durham University to study Engineering Science. The first half of my career was with Unilever in various operational and technical roles in the UK, Netherlands and India. I am currently VP Manufacturing & Supply Chain Europe for a large international spirits company, as well as being Chairman of a Scotch Whisky company and Council Member of the Scotch Whisky Association.
I have been leading large teams in major international businesses throughout my career and am happy to now support Calvert Trust, and in particular the Finance team.
I am married with two grown up children who live in Penrith and Zurich. I am a season ticket holder at Carlisle United and run marathons as a member of Eden Runners.
