Where did your interest in Corporate Finance begin?
My career in practice spanned some 40 years as a former partner at Ernst & Young and Senior Partner at Deloitte. During that time I built a highly successful practice across four locations and grew a progressive and dynamic environment for the business and team. I subsequently led the creation of a Private Markets practice in the Thames Valley and more recently led a major practice expansion plan in Cardiff before retiring in 2020. I have forged and now maintain strong relationships in the public and private sectors. I have worked with many business owners on a wide range of projects helping them with their growth plans.
When did you join Gambit?
I joined Gambit in July 2021 to advise on strategic development, supporting the team and assisting with the firm’s longer term growth plans. I am able to share my experience over many years in practice as well as, since stepping back from a full time role, my time on boards both as chair and as non-executive director. I continue to play a pivotal role in the Welsh business community providing leadership and challenge.
What are you known for?
As an economics graduate and Chartered Accountant I am known for being highly strategic as well as commercially focussed. I enjoy helping people develop and flourish in challenging business environments..
What might people not know about you?
I am the Chair of Cardiff Airport, Chair of Bond Digital Health and non-executive director of Family Finance Ltd. I am also the former Chair of CBI in Wales and have worked with Teach First Wales and The Prince’s Trust Wales.
Away from the board table I am a junior rugby coach, assist with City of Cardiff Swimming Club and participate in motor sport both on land and on the water.
