Areas of responsibility within Forfusion
As Chief Executive Officer I’m responsible for setting the strategy, culture and governance across the entire company – I lead Forfusion's team on a mission to transform business, together.
Having worked in technology, engineering and business consulting for over 20 years, I’ve gained invaluable experience in both private and public sector industries. I’ve architected complex designs, technology road-maps and risk mitigation strategies, for some of the largest blue-chip companies in the world. More recently, I’ve been responsible for managing and executing a company acquisition, as well as developing the associated earn out mechanics.
Prior to life in the commercial world, I spent my time working for the armed forces in some of the most hostile places on earth. Whilst serving, I worked extensively with computer networks, as well as designing blast walls to absorb rocket energy. I also worked as a specialised military diver and spent half my life underwater searching for dead bodies and other unpleasant things. To let off steam I spent much of my time on the judo mat and in the boxing ring, and in fact, participating in any physical and mental challenge that presented itself.
This quote really resonates with me, as I feel it represents one of our most powerful core values, integrity.
“A lot of people are afraid to tell the truth, to say no. That's where toughness comes into play. Toughness is not being a bully. It's having backbone.”
- Robert Kiyosaki
Now that my judo and boxing days are over, I keep fit as a wannabe triathlete that’s hopeless on a bike, almost as bad in the water, and can barely even run these days. I love fine wine, France and spending time with my crazy boxer dogs, my daughter and my very patient fiancée. I also enjoy reading books on business strategy and pursuing further studies to broaden my knowledge in this weird and wonderful world.
