I qualified as a chartered accountant and subsequently spent most of my career with Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC. After retiring as CEO of Hitachi Capital I was elected district councillor for the Farnham Royal Ward in 2011 and re-elected in 2015.
My financial knowledge has been used by South Bucks DC, and I have served as Cabinet Member for Resources and on various committees and advisory groups. I have served on working groups advising on the sharing of services between Chiltern Council and SBDC. These have achieved efficiency improvements and cost savings of hundreds of thousand of pounds per annum.
I am currently Chairman of the Audit Committee and a member of the Planning Committee.
