I am a Chartered Accountant and became Treasurer of BSEM in 2018. I spent twenty years at PWC (and its predecessor firms) specialising in risk management, process improvement and systems. Subsequently I spent four years at Lazard Brothers helping to define and implement a new business support strategy. And lastly in my business career I owned a small consultancy specialising in benchmarking, mainly in risk management in the financial sector. Since retiring I run a small portfolio of holiday rentals and I have worked as Treasurer for several small charities. I am a keen supporter of ecological and functional medicine as a means of avoiding damage from, and, when our bodies are in need of help, to get over the ravages to which they are submitted.
