I hold degrees from Cranfield (MBA) and Cambridge (MA), with current work at Portsmouth University. My career covered financial markets in the USA, France, the Middle East and Africa. A fascinating decade at the National Audit Office involved working closely with Parliament.
In London, my children attended a French Lycee – another form of all through school. My volunteer activities included service as a young officer in the Queen’s Own Yeomanry and, as a member of the Consistoire, teaching Sunday School in London’s last Huguenot church. The oldest of six grandchildren from this previous marriage studies at Warwick University.
Nineteen years ago, my American wife, who completed her PhD at Brighton, introduced us to the Isle of Wight and seven years ago we made our home here. I am a strong believer in the necessity of achieving the best educational outcomes for the children of Niton and Sandown, in order to maximise their potential and benefit their community.
