Director of Business Growth and External Affairs

What I do

I am responsible for UKCF’s fundraising strategy, stakeholder engagement and marketing and communications.

About me

Following an international career as a military officer, I worked for the Foreign Office before moving into consultancy. Since then, I have served as a Managing Director and President for consultancy companies in the Middle East and manufacturing companies in UK. I moved to the charity sector in 2020, volunteering for RE:ACT and the VCSEP during the pandemic, before joining UKCF. I also serve as a mentor for SSAFA. 

Outside of work…

A lapsed rugby player, skydiver, and skier, I still enjoy scuba diving, travel and unsuccessfully trying to work off the middle-aged spread.
