I grew up in Leicester and, after graduating from Warwick University, joined the Barclays Graduate scheme. After 7 years in the UK, Europe, and Africa, I moved to Eastbourne in 2013 to join Hastings Direct Insurance where I’m a Director in their Claims business. Since moving, our family has grown, and my wife Chika and I now have two children at St Johns Meads. I was appointed as a parent governor to this unique and special school in February 2020. I now contribute to the work of the Local Governing Board using my professional experience and skills in finance as a lead Finance governor.
