Having qualified as a solicitor, I worked at an international law firm for 8 years. After a career change in 2016, I joined Marpol in a Commercial Director role. I was appointed Managing Director in March 2019, prior to leading an MBO of the business in August 2019.
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.
Having initially qualified as a Solicitor and later working within the business side of professional football, I have worked in a number of commercial roles; either as business owner or business development manager. Liam and I purchased Marpol in August 2019 as part of an MBO.
