Board Advisor

With over 35 years’ experience in HR, of which the last 15 years has been in HR outsourcing, shared services and consulting, there is not much I haven’t seen in HR Transformation.  In addition to 20 years of line HR roles in the Oil Industry I have designed outsourcing arrangements for many of the Global 500.

I particularly enjoy using my HR background to address the challenges facing businesses and their HR Functions today with an emphasis on process excellence, deployment of innovative technology solutions and everything to “make HR work better”.

The last 15 years I have worked for a number of the leading Companies in the HR Outsourcing and Consulting space including, NorthateArinso, IBM, Hewitt and Exult.  All have provided me the opportunity of analysing in depth the challenges facing many leading Company’s HR functions and developing transformational solutions for them.

Until recently I was the Chairman of the HR Outsourcing Association in Europe working with Service Providers; Advisers and client organisations to develop the HRO Industry.

I have a degree in Psychology from Bradford University; post graduate qualifications in Employment Law from Heriot Watt, Edinburgh and have had the pleasure of undertaking Executive Education at Stanford and Michigan Universities in the USA.

As a bit of a “speed-freak” I enjoy spending my leisure time restoring classic motor bikes; and driving my own race car or travelling at a more leisurely pace with my wife and family.
