I am an experienced audit engagement lead based in our Leicester office, with more than 30 years' experience of advising a range of businesses from publicly listed to substantial private, to family and owner-managed SMEs. I have taken director status for my final two years, pre-retirement, having been a partner for 25 years.
During my time at Grant Thornton I have also been managing partner in Milton Keynes for three years and Leicester for five years. I chair the firm's partner and director selection panel, having been a member for 20 years and chair for over 10 years. I also served three full terms, of three years each, as an elected member of the firm's partnership oversight board, which performs functions parallel to non-executive directors.
Outside of work I am a board member and trustee of Leicestershire Cares, a local charity that brings businesses and the community together through local volunteering. I also follow Leicester Tigers and Leicester City.
