I am an experienced accountant and business adviser with 17 years' experience in advising corporates and stakeholders in relation to debt.

In my current role, I provide debt advisory services to corporates throughout Yorkshire and the north-east. My expertise also includes advising directors on restructuring a business, and its operations, to ensure that it can achieve its existing debt servicing requirements, and optimise profit and cashflow generation.

In 2009 I undertook a year-long secondment to HSBC Bank plc, where I performed due diligence on new funding applications. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience but more importantly it has enabled me to provide a different perspective to my clients.

Outside of work, I am an avid golfer, currently playing off a handicap of one, and have represented Northumberland County on several occasions.  I am also a keen cyclist and snowboarder.
