I have been the IT Director for Mencap for the last 5 years and before that, a similar role at United Response for 4. Before moving into the charity sector, I spent over 11 years working in the financial markets, setting up and running the IT for a boutique, but global, Head Hunting organisation with offices in New York, London and Hong Kong. I have 2 beautiful daughters and a fabulous wife, fly a helicopter for fun, ride a motorbike and, for my sins, I am a Spurs fan. Nerdy fact. I’ve now been using Excel for 25 years!
