I was appointed as Managing Director of the firm in October 2020 and in that role am responsible for managing the strategic and operational side of the practice working with the Board and the Central Services Managers.

I have lived in Kent since 1995 and am married with two young children who keep me very busy in my spare time. However, I do venture on to the golf course when time permits!
