I am a white British male from a Jewish background although I am not religious at all. I grew up in Essex where my parents were not wealthy, and I went to state school. I worked throughout secondary school from the age of 11 doing jobs including washing cars, mowing lawns, a paper round, washing up in pubs and restaurants, supermarket cashier and working in a butcher’s shop, driven by my desire to pay my own way. I was the first in my family to go to university, studying Maths and Statistics at Leeds University.
I started my career as an actuarial graduate at Bacon & Woodrow before switching to Investment at Entegria. After a spell at KPMG I joined Xafinity in 2014 which became XPS in 2018. From 2019 I have been the Head of Investment and I sit on our Executive Committee. I am married with a daughter.
I want to see everyone thrive and meet their true potential and this can only be done in an inclusive and diverse culture. I am also a passionate believer that everyone should have an equal opportunity regardless of background or privilege.
