My bio
I have over 38 years’ experience working in the Automotive industry and started my career as an  Undergraduate Apprentice with Rolls-Royce and Bentley Motor Cars. Having secured a Bsc Hons in Mechanical Engineering, I progressed into a powertrain engineering development role to develop the Turbocharged V8 6.75 Litre engine specified for Bentley Turbo R. This model was actually the game changer within the product range at that time and instrumental in the resurgence of the Bentley Brand prior to the VW Group ownership. My career then took a deviation into the world of sales and marketing, where I was involved in selling the vehicles that I had been so closely involved with from an engineering perspective. 

Following the VW purchase of Bentley Motors ltd in 1998, my career focussed on Project Management delivering many iconic Bentley products, including Arnage, Azure, Brooklands and Mulsanne. My interests all gravitate around cars and I have been fortunate to have been part of many product launches and press events. I have driven many makes and models including most of the supercars in some very interesting places around the world. Having acquired many years of automotive knowledge and specialised training, I am also very keen to work with the next generation of engineers and managers to help them develop and grow into top performers. I have just recently joined Fircroft and am looking forward to expanding their global automotive capability.
