Besides meeting my wife and having two wonderful kids, leading MRF is the greatest privilege of my life.
The team are amazing. Our supporters are unbelievably inspiring. The cause is unquestionably important for global health.
Since joining in 2015 I’ve helped develop and launch a new brand identity, new website and a new strategy. We’ve held governments to account on vaccine policy and called for and achieved a new World Health Organisation global task force for meningitis to 2030.
In previous lives I have been, amongst other things, an international consultant, Chief Operating Officer, and Head of Direct Marketing for organisations as diverse as Cancer Research UK and the African Center for Economic Transformation (Ghana).
I juggle the most important things in my life (see above) alongside being a guest lecturer at the University of the West of England on organisational development; being a Steering Committee member of the Global Meningococcal Initiative; a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and Manufacturers; and a Trustee of Autistica.
For leisure I cycle; visit art galleries; fight the weeds at my allotment; and keep four small fish and two snails.
