I have been with Grant Thornton for 18 years during which time I have held multiple roles. I am particularly proud of the time I spent in the role of International Business Centre director, facilitating work flows between the UK firm and other member firms of Grant Thornton's international network. This experience enabled me to build an extensive international network and gain a clear understanding of cultural nuances and effective global assignments.
I have more than 30 years' experience in the profession, and am currently the audit principal for a wide range of owner-managed businesses, both domestic and global. I also head up the audit offering to businesses with South Asian connections (primarily India). I also work closely with the Indian member firm of Grant Thornton International. My work cuts across sectors with a focus on technology (including startups) and software, food and beverage, property, shipping and travel sectors.
I am married with three children. Perhaps I didn't choose too wisely as a child but I am an avid Tottenham Hotspur fan.
