Although I was born in Leek, my father was in the army so I have travelled with him all over the world living in Wales, Warwickshire, Germany twice, Lancashire, and Malaysia, finally settling back in Staffordshire when my father left the army after 15 years. All of these moves meant that I have attended 12 different schools.
I am currently Sales Manager for Gogo Designs Ltd, a position which I have now held for 4 years, although since leaving school in 1978 I have held various positions including Tax Officer for the Inland Revenue, Payroll Manager and then Personnel Manager for an International Industrial Door Company, Business Manager for a Bearings supplier, Waste Company and Fitness Equipment Supplier and had my own business.
I hold 7 "O" levels and have a degree in Personnel Management. I am an experienced Psychometric Analyst for Svend Holst McQuaig, although I no longer hold a licence to practice for them.
I am an ex President of the Junior Chamber of Commerce and am currently a member of the Staffordshire Moorlands Local Area Board of the Chamber of Commerce.
I think that my main strengths are loyalty, honesty and commitment to anything that I take on.
