I am white British, brought up in multicultural London, went to a grammar school before going on to the University of Nottingham to study Chemistry.
Following a 33 year career at PwC, I retired in June 2020. I now spend my time trying to add value to organisations who are driving positive change. At PwC, for my last decade I was the Global Financial Services People Leader and a member of the Global Financial Services Leadership Team, with responsibility for the network’s strategic people issues, including a focus on creating a more diverse senior leadership. In addition, I was the market leader of PwC’s Global HR Consulting Financial Services practice, supporting organisations on their people challenges and founded and led the UK firm’s diversity and inclusion consulting practice, supporting firms on their diversity and inclusion challenges.
I am passionate about driving change to create more diverse workforces and inclusive workplaces, so that everyone is treated with respect and has equal opportunities to fulfil their potential. I believe that organisations that are inclusive increase their value to all stakeholders and are a critical element in bringing about societal change.
Anita and I have been married for over 25 years, we have no children but two fabulous Hungarian vizslas, Sage and Meadow.
