I have twenty-five years’ experience in search, focused on organisations with a social mission. I worked for over seven years’ with both Saxton Bampfylde and then Heidrick and Struggles, where I was Partner in the Education and Social Enterprise Practice, prior to co-founding Minerva.

My experience includes advising on the appointments of Vice-Chancellors, Chief Executives, Chairs and Board Members and a broad range of other roles.

I am a Board Member of Bow Arts, one of London’s leading providers of affordable arts studios and a leader in creative placemaking in the City.  I am also a Governor of the Institute of Advanced Research in Gujarat, India.

I studied Classics and English at Keble College, Oxford and then undertook an MSc in Organisational Behaviour at Birkbeck, University of London. Outside of work I am a leader of a garage rock band.
