Business Development Director
I arrived at Sodexo in early 2014 as business development director after a three-year spell with a competitor working in the business and industry sector.
It is my first foray into independent schools but I love a challenge and I have already enjoyed some success in securing high profile new business contracts.
Independents by Sodexo is doing a fantastic job and I see part of my role as getting the message to the outside world that we are a significant player in this unique marketplace.
Prior to venturing into catering I spent six years in business development within the facilities management and security sector, having cut my teeth in newspaper and directory advertising sales following university.
Having achieved a 2:1 Business Studies degree at Plymouth University I spent a year travelling Australia, Indonesia and the Far East where I discovered my adrenaline junkie side. I have to date completed one 14,000ft skydive, eight bungee jumps and over fifty scuba-dives across the world.
My favourite things are:
Scuba diving in warm waters
Eating delicious seafood
Drinking good wine
