OVERVIEW
OVERVIEW

I am a seasoned and passionate leader with a record of growth in the electronics and technology sector, particularly Professional Audio, Broadcast and Set-Top boxes. I have experience in developing and implementing strategic business plans, business turnaround, business integration, driving growth and improving business performance. I pride myself in having a strong knowledge of technology and have been very lucky in working with some incredible people.

I am experienced in working with US, Asian and European corporations and have served on Executive Teams of businesses over $1bn revenue. I have held P&L and balance sheet responsibility for businesses up to $200m revenue and over 700 employees.

My favourite book is 'The Singularity Is Near' by Ray Kurzweil which predicts the increasingly exponential affect of technology on our lives.

I am a keen runner and in 2022 I ran my first marathon (Chicago) with my wife.
