My career began with the UK Ministry of Defence where I spent ten years, including a stint in The Rt. Hon. Alan Clarke MP’s Private Office, before joining the prestigious Civil Service Fast stream (which has a 2% pass rate) as the first internal appointee in a decade and despite not being a graduate.
Together with Mark Jukes I co-founded Elbrus Partners in January 2013. Prior to this I was Head of Equities at Mizuho Securities in Europe from 2006 as MD and Member of the Executive, Risk and IT Steering Committees and also ran the Fixed Income Sales and Trading business for a period as Mizuho re-focused their business on customer rather than proprietary activities.
A former Army Officer and Founder of the leadership consulting firm Black Isle Group in London, I have worked in leadership development and people management for over 35 years, with a broad range of banking and financial services clients. My passion has always been about helping people achieve success and fulfilment at work.
