Mercer Market Leader and CEO
Diversity Project Ambassador
I am white British, specifically Scottish and grew up in St.Andrews (small town about an hour from Edinburgh). I went to comprehensive school in St.Andrews, which is the only school for about a 15mile radius and everyone goes there, then to Strathclyde University in Glasgow to study Maths with Economics.
I joined Mercer in London straight from university to become a pensions actuary, then after qualifying moved into our investments business in 1994, which I ultimately led for 5 years to 2011.
I became Mercer’s UK CEO in 2012.I have a long-term partner and we have 2 boys aged 17 and 12.
He works in property and we have always lived in London, but took a sabbatical in 2008 in Spain. I dabble in many things and am trying improve my 10k PB and learn Spanish and golf (which I never imagined playing!).
