Profile

I am a strategic thinker with over 30 years’ management and marketing experience in the UK food & agricultural sector, and lead SAC Consulting’s Food & Drink team.  Prior to joining SRUC I held a senior buying position in the CWS which involved developing and managing multi-million pound product ranges for this national UK multiple retailer.
