Bio

Most recently I was the co-founding CEO of Skyscape Cloud Services, which in less than four years has grown to become the leading provider of assured cloud infrastructure services to the UK Public Sector and according to Deloitte's FAST 500, the sixth fastest growing technology company in EMEA. Previously, I co-founded PA3, enabling US entertainment and media companies to mobilise their early digital content as well as acquiring MDS and positioning it for the age of digital.

I am passionate about helping technology companies innovate and scale and previous experience includes Director of New Ventures/e-Business for GKN Plc, where I reported into the Main Board and worked across an extensive portfolio of business activities across, Europe, America, Asia and Australia.

Currently I'm a Main Board member of TechUK, the UK technology industry association, as well as Chair of the Cloud and Mobile Services Council. I was previously a member of the UK's Information Economy Council and in 2013 co-authored the UK Data Capability Strategy with Sir Professor Nigel Shadbolt.

I have an MBA from London Business School and a Chemistry degree from the University of Sussex.
