As business leaders we face many challenges and we understand that leading a business can be a lonely place. I wish I had known about Vistage when I was in that chair. What I found missing was the opportunity to meet regularly with peers with no vested interest who had the knowledge, experience and different perspectives that could help me to better understand the challenges I faced.
So now I’m putting something back, using my skills and experience to help other business leaders unleash their personal and professional potential through membership of our peer advisory group.

My energy comes from building great teams and seeing them develop. I believe in the power that an engaged, supportive and challenging peer group can bring, and I want to introduce that to ambitious business leaders who want to grow themselves and their business, and to travel with them as a trusted partner on their exciting journey.

A bit about me, I have over 25 years’ experience as Managing Director of businesses ranging in size from £5m to £85m turnover under a variety of ownership models. I have successfully built, coached, and developed multifunctional leadership teams in multi-site engineering, manufacturing, distribution and contracting organisations in the UK, Europe and North America.
I live in South Staffordshire, I’m married to Anthea and have 2 grown up sons. On Saturdays you’ll find me refereeing rugby matches around the Midlands.

Are you a life-long learner and business leader who wants to become better so you can improve your effectiveness, enhance your life, and benefit your company, your family and community? Perhaps we should talk?
