Meet your tutor

I have over 35 years of practical business experience, working in and running all sizes of private and family businesses, as well as starting my own private consultancy.

Working my way up the business ladder - with companies such as Polycell, Rothmans and Courage Beer - I spent 7 successful years as the sales and marketing director of a FTSE 100 company, responsible for such brands as Courvoisier, Mumm and Perrier-Jouët Champagnes, Tia Maria, Malibu, Teachers and Grant’s whiskeys, Harvey's Bristol Cream and many other household drink brands. I also had the opportunity to be seconded to run various other company divisions such as HR, logistics and production, which gave me the breadth of experience to start running various businesses as Managing Director; including setting up and growing the new UK arm of a German business into a £40 million turnover company in five years.

I now want to help the team at Kendal College become the central resource and hub of the local business community, giving support, advice and training in a practical and collaborative atmosphere.
