How long have you been here?
I joined Cistor in 2012 – the year of the London Olympics.
What attracted you to join?
I was intrigued by Cistor's really simple, straightforward value proposition: reduce cost - without adding risk to the business.
What drives you in business?
I like building things – value propositions, new business offerings, great teams and great customer experiences. And I like a challenge – if it was easy, anyone could do it!
What qualifies you to do the job you do?
In 1998, during the internet boom, I left the relatively safe environment of a large telecoms equipment provider to start up a company called CacheFlow. We built and IPO’d the company in 2001 and I have been building sales teams and value propositions ever since.
Who is your biggest professional influencer and why?
Richard Branson, for his positive ambitious attitude to everything.
What do you do in your spare time?
I play squash in the Surrey competitions and we also play a special version of the game – doubles, on a bigger court. A doubles match typically includes five pairs on each side, so you get to meet a lot of people! I'm also a regular but very poor runner, cyclist, golfer, cook and dog walker.
If you could turn back time and do one thing differently what would it be?
I would have learned to windsurf in my twenties – I love it and I'm addicted to it, but I don’t think I will ever get far past beginner!
Why did you chose this photo of you?
It is my linked in picture taken some years ago, so it makes me look much younger than I really am.
