Profile Bio

Areas of responsibility within Forfusion

As the Managed Services Director, I am accountable for the effective and efficient delivery, development and improvement of Forfusion’s Managed Services.

Industry experience

Over 35 years of experience in the Communications world as an Engineer, Senior Manager and Director, I have delivered many successful projects and services in both the private and public sector, some with value in excess of £1 million. The type of Customer I have worked with are Mars, 3M, the Ministry of Defence, British Airways and the Home Office.

Background

Following my time in the RAF, I have held senior roles at collaboration consultancies. Over this time I have experienced the development of the communications world into what it is today. My technical skills, particularly in audiovisual, are underpinned by a Digital Communications Degree, whilst my IT Management skills are complemented by being a Registered Prince2 Practitioner and Certified ITIL expert.

I have managed a large number of Engineers and also project teams with wide-ranging skills sets that were compiled of both customer and supplier personalities. In my younger days, I was a semi-professional footballer, and have lived in countries such as Hong Kong, Germany and Italy. As a result, I have a very multi-cultural outlook on life.

Favourite quote

“Nobody died.”

A wise person

I find this takes the steam out of most situations, a phrase I have used on many occasions in the last 2 years in many areas of my life - it works!

Other interests

Being active is a key component of my life outside of work. I am a regular gym attendee and run several half marathons every year. I must get an annual fix of skiing and I also do plenty of cycling.

In the last two years, I have been the founding trustee of a local charity that has raised almost £60,000 which is funding the opening of a new Prostate Cancer centre in my local hospital where I was treated for the disease early in 2016. As part of this fundraising, I cycled around 750 miles across Europe in 9 days. To complement all of this activity, I like to cook, listen to music and spend time walking our dog to relax.
