Job Role

As Managing Director, I have the opportunity to work across the NDI Group of Companies, which is both challenging and rewarding.   My role makes me the focal point for operational issues which can range from business development targets, including sales strategies, to staff and training issues. The diversity is part of the attraction for me as it keeps me ‘on my toes!’.


I have worked in the Insurance Industry for over 25 years, primarily in the Broker / Intermediary Sector, with a number of years in Senior Management or Director positions.

Much of my experience is in the area of Commercial lines, with a particular emphasis on Schemes / Affinity Marketing. I moved to Norwich from London, and also worked in the Isle of Man re-structuring and re-modelling a Branch of what was then Lowndes Lambert Insurance Brokers, turning an operating loss to a profit in 12 months. One of my key objectives is to place NDI at the Centre of the developing science of Stem Cell treatments through the creation of innovative solutions to cover the cost of treatment.

My hobbies include keep fit, cooking, music and motorsport. I also enjoy good food, good wine, and good company!
