I’m responsible for…
overseeing the financial management of the CCG, ensuring that it meets its financial and efficiency targets and balances its books. I am Chairman of the Finance Procurement and Contracting Committee.

My career began in…
1975 when I graduated from Liverpool University with a degree in economics and joined British Leyland as a finance graduate trainee.

I have more than 40 years’ experience working in senior financial and strategic roles in multinational blue chip organisations such as Ford, PwC, Courtaulds and Pilkington. I lived and worked in the USA for 4 years.

I like coming to work/my role because…
I am keen to use the international experience and skills that I aquired in the private sector to help improve overall management in the public sector. I am a firm believer in the value of integrated health and social care and during the last 10 years I have held a number of non executive director positions in the health and housing sectors, both here and in Ireland. I am currently Chairman of the Regenda Housing Group which is based in Liverpool.

Outside of work I…
like to relax by watching football and Rugby with my adult sons. I also enjoy playing golf and practicing Karate and Yoga.
