As Commercial Director, I work with my fellow Partners and employees to develop strategies to approach, manage and deliver customer excellence, continued industry recognition and ultimately, growth for Brethertons LLP.
I was proud to serve as CEO from August 2014 to April 2019. I currently sit on the Executive Committee (affectionately known as “EXCO”) with overall strategic ownership for the firm.
I am, by profession, a lawyer, mediator and litigator. I also run on creativity, energy and enthusiasm making me an ‘ideas-man’ at heart. I’m a serial networker and have hosted numerous dinner, lunch and breakfast meetings with speakers including David Cameron, Boris Johnson, Lord Digby Jones and Olympian Roger Black. I won’t tell you which was the most enjoyable.
I enjoy cooking, fishing, golfing and more recently, cycling. As a cook I have the flair and passion of Jamie Oliver, with occasional language of Gordon Ramsay; as a golfer, I have much to learn and as cyclist, I won’t be on the tail of Sir Bradley Wiggins any time soon. My fishing ability is on a par with that of Bob Mortimer!
