What have I done that qualifies me for this role: I am a chartered accountant and chief financial officer and Board member with the England and Wales Cricket Board. I have more than two decades of experience in financial leadership across sport, property, construction and consultancy. I’ve worked with blue chip clients across Australasian and international markets. I’ve worked on the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport and was the chief financial officer for the Americas Cup, yachting’s biggest prize. I’m also an archer and was actively involved in the Californian field archery scene – and a bit of an adventurer. I’ve climbed Mount Everest, Mount Kilimanjaro and Mont Blanc and I’ve completed the Four Deserts Race: 24 marathons in 24 days across 620 miles in the Sahara, Gobi, Atacama and the Last Desert in Antarctica. What will I bring to this role: It’s a challenging time for all sports within the UK from both a commercial and participation perspective. I am excited about joining the Archery GB team to help ensure our great sport continues to grow and prosper in this country.
