Biography

Tell us a bit about your background and skills

Whilst I am now retired I did spend my working life in financial services.  After 10 years working for a leading Insurance Company I set up my own practice in 1976 which I ran until my retirement 37 years later in 2013.Outside of work I have sat on several Boards including Chairmanship of Young Enterprise and Severn Valley Railway Charitable Trust.

I have lived in Wyre Forest for the past 50 years.

In 2013 I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, an incurable bone cancer for which I am currently receiving regular treatment.

How did you become involved?

Having known the then Chair of Kemp, Ron Whitfield, as both a friend and business client for many years, we had several discussions regarding Kemp and all it had to offer.  Sometime later and already sold on the organisation I was only too pleased to accept an offer to join the Board.

Thoughts on KEMP
During my time with Kemp I have witnessed something of a rollercoaster ride whilst the organisation has undergone a period of change and restructure.  I now feel that with the appointment of our new CEO, fire fighting has been replaced by a positive attitude and I am now confident the Charity with its dedicated Board, staff and volunteers will go from strength to strength in offering its wide range of services to the people of Wyre Forest.
