As Managing Director, I have ultimate responsibility for the overall strategic direction of the business. I also enjoy client management duties for a number of our key accounts.
When I’m not in the office, I can usually be found hacking clearances into row Z for a local football club, or trying to find wayward drives in the trees surrounding local golf courses.
