I started life in the car industry’s industrial relations hotbed at Longbridge and moved through operational jobs (QC and Production) to arrive in HR with substantial experience. I moved through several site HR Manager’s job in a number of large manufacturing businesses before moving to Deputy Director of EEF East Midlands directing a large team of employment lawyers and HR professional advisers serving over 800 member companies (latterly when it merged with EEF West Midlands). After a substantial career and moving to Deputy C/E of the East Midlands operation, I now own and direct Strategic HR Support Ltd providing advice, guidance and training to clients either on a retained hours or project basis. We can work separately or in conjunction with PJH Law to provide clients with additional expertise in the HR specialisms mentioned above.

Outside Activities

I enjoy walking, photography, all team sports, and apple growing. In fact during the summer/autumn months most clients become inundated with fresh supplies of home grown pommes.
