I have worked at Grant Thornton for 17 years during which time I have held multiple roles. I am particularly proud of the time I spent as 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 has 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). 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 and a part-time 'taxi driver' to three children. Perhaps I didn't choose wisely as a child but I am an avid Tottenham Hotspur fan.
