I studied PPE at Oriel College (1984-7). I then completed a Short Service Commission in the Royal Horse Artillery before moving into the finance sector, qualifying as an accountant with Arthur Andersen. I am a senior corporate financier with over 20 years’ experience including at Samuel Montagu (HSBC), Schroder Salomon Smith Barney (Citigroup) and for the last 13 years as a Partner at Penfida advising pension fund trustees. I also have experience as a Finance Director, at Evolutec, and a Non-Executive Director, at Celsis.
In my spare time, I enjoy travel and spending time absorbing the culture and history of Italy.
