What’s your role?

I am the Senior Partner at BarrettClark

At BarrettClark since?

I joined the company in January 2002 as their first employee. I was excited by the opportunity to play a key part in a young and dynamic organisation.

What do you do?

My responsibilities are broad across the business. I manage a number key client relationships and handle a range of senior and international assignments. Work with the team to develop and implement ways to support the business and move it forward. Am involved with key elements of running the company.

What did you do before BarrettClark

Spent three great years at University! Took a year out to travel the world with my best mate, completed an MBA, cut my teeth in recruitment with a leading city based recruitment firm.

What annoys you?

Being let down by people

Who is your hero?

Lance Armstrong – I think someone who had cancer, was given a less than 40% chance of survival and came through it is remarkable. To then go on to win the Tour de France on 7 occasion’s is phenomenal. Being a keen cyclist and having faced it, anyone who completes a mountain stage of the Tour deserves respect….let alone what Lance achieved.

When you were a youngster, what was your ambition?

I was a dedicated squash player so I wanted to represent my country….which I am proud to have gone on to do.

Any pearls of Wisdom?

Teamwork divides the task and multiplies the success
