As a Commercial solicitor I advise a wide range of local businesses
and I am passionate about understanding and encouraging business growth and development.
Although now back in private practice, I have previously worked (as a lawyer)
for two very entrepreneurial businesses, with one of those jobs being
for arguably Britain’s most successful entrepreneur of all, Sir Richard Branson.
As Chair of the Genix board, I’m keen to bring some of that spirit to the table, supporting the Genix Team with the many and varied enterprise and training initiatives, they provide to start-up and growing businesses.
To be involved in Genix is a fantastic opportunity, the support and inspiration that Genix offers to the business community is amazing, and to play a part in that direction is a privileged position.
Having started my own Surveying and Project Management business four years ago the support in those early stages is so valuable to ensure long-term success.
I’m a partner in BuryPhysio & the HunterClub Bar & Venue, a Director of several other business ventures in property, music & fashion & Chair of the Millennium Farm Trust.
My early career was in engineering in Africa & the Far East & subsequently I worked in business development in UK construction & further education. Currently I’m building an eco house.
I’m director of Pathfinder East and have over 25 years’ experience in the private, not-for-profit & public sectors with a focus on marketing, funding & strategic business support for companies. There is tremendous drive & opportunities for start-ups & business growth & I’m delighted to be part of the team to help shape the work of Genix.
When I set up Bay Tree VA over 5 years ago I found the support and advice I received both helpful and reassuring.
As such I am pleased to be involved on its Board, representing not only professional small businesses but those particularly in their growth stage.
I’m a retired company director who qualified as a chartered surveyor in 1974 and I’ve been involved in the commercial property scene since 1977.
I’m the former chairman of Bury St Edmunds Chamber of Commerce. I continue to enjoy ensuring the growth of the organisation and its services to the local business community.
As a partner with RSM, and its predecessor firms, I specialise in advising businesses in a wide variety of sectors and enjoy building close working relationships with my clients, from start-up operations to established owner managed businesses. I am passionate about helping businesses grow to reach their full potential and am proud to work alongside the Genix team to support the excellent services that Genix provide to the business community in Suffolk.
I’m managing director of web development and integration specialists, Marketing Interactive UK Ltd.
With over 25 years of commercial experience my skills centre on strategic e-business consultancy and an ability to identify commercial objectives and requirements, and translating these into an actionable technical strategy.
I enjoy my work with Genix and bring a host of web and technical skills to the board.
